Who wants one
Who wants one
Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you
I'm a thinking I'll get one.
I've had a Steyr Scout, a Savage Scout, A Marlin "Lever Scout" and a homebuilt Scout...
I kinda like the scout rifle concept.
I'd be really inclined if they ever brought it out left handed. But based on past experience, I think my money is as safe as Fort Knox.
I'd probably snap one up if it were available in LH.
Now what ?
Living the urban lifestyle so I can pay my way and for my family's needs, and support my country. And you?

Wow, that's some dandy looking open sights that they've added to the compact scout. If I could retro-fit the original floor plate and magazine to that gun, it'd be worth having those rugged open sights.
Very tempting, for sure. I like it!
The link shows it at $995.00
I've bought most of my Ruger's at 70% of their MSRP from a local shop near my house. If that holds true on this model you may expect to buy one for about $700.00

Interesting concept and one I actually like. The only thing I do not like is the composite trigger guard small thing I know.
Hmmm, interesting little toy - I wonder if you can use lower capacity clips in it if'n ya didn't want all that hanging out?
Thx Amigo for the post.
When asked what state I live in I say "The State of Confusion", better known as IL....
The pics are all with the 10 rd mags. They are single stack so a 5 rounder is half the size. I want one, local gun store has 2 on order, already let em know to give me 1st dibs.
Good info and some pics with 5rd mags:
I think I'm going to get one as well and put a Aimpoint red dot on it.
Call me old-fashioned, but to me a bolt-action rifle shouldn't have a big magazine dangling below the stock. Count me out.
I'll also take one in a lefty version if they ever make it.
My AR-10 is 16" (10 lbs with scope and bipod)and I have a Savage I built with a 20" heavy barrel and a 10 round mag (9.5 lbs), both in .308. The mags are right at the balance point and they are too darn loud for hunting without serious ear protection. If you are a wanttobe then it is a neat toy and could have some use as a defensive gun, but then I'd rather have it in a .338 Fed or .358 Win., but then the .308 is a fine round.
I have a Marlin XS7 in .308 stainless 22" barrel that weighs 7 pounds that holds 4+1 and cost under $400. Use the other $300 on good glass and you have a hunting gun. If you need a 10 round mag you have a need for some training...maybe that's why Ruger teamed with Gunsight.
I don't plan on using the one I get for hunting, I think, unless over bait. I just want one. It will be fun to shoot at 300m with a red dot on top. I already have a Bushmaster o.r.c. .308 (not a AR-10, as only Armalite rifles are AR-10s due to copyright laws) that will be used for most of my hunting this upcoming year.
With full disclosure...mine is only an AR-9.5 since it has non-Armalite A2 butt and scope mounts. I have run a 4 MOA red dot on AR-15's and they are a lot of fun shooting to 300 yds on steel. Much farther and you loose the target behind the dot. I am building a 20" 6.8 upper that should also be a lot of fun at that range. If the Ruger is reasonably accurate it should be a hoot but loud!!!
I like the Ruger and the cartridge they chose.

I would order one, if it was in 45-70 or 458 win mag.
