Ruger American 22 WMR scope base



Log in to see fewer ads
I just picked up a Ruger American 22 WMR and am looking to get a Picatinny style base for it. I have found several rimfire bases but it doesn’t look like it will fit the WMR. Do I use the SA base or will the 22LR rimfire base work?

I've been trying to decide on one as well. Same base as the 22lr as I've read.

Leaning toward EGW but worried about the extra height over the factory rail.

I just use the Weaver 12 bases, but realize that may not work for certain scopes.

My RAR has the threaded holes for the bases drilled off center so I used the BKL mount that uses the rimfire dovetails. It has the cut out for the ejection port and is a one piece unit that is very strong

I don't like the cut-out because it removes mounting points for rings. I've never had an ejection issue with the solid rail.

All Ruger American Rimfire bases have same hole spacing. EGW make some of the best. I have them on several rifles. None better for your application.

Its not cut out on the top/side just on the bottom.
