AwesomeRead, the reviews on this scope, and they were right. Vortex makes excellent scopes. Mounted it 2 days after I promptly received it from Academy. Beats every Leupold I own.
is it possible to mount this scope on a Ruger AR-556 ? If not please reccomend a scope that will work for me up to a maximum of 1000 yards . Thanks in advance .

The Vortex 6.5 - 20 x 50 Viper Riflescope requires 30mm rings. You can buy some rings that will have adapters for both 1" & 30mm.
The type of mounts needed will be dependent on several factors. Mounting requires a "personal fitting" based on the firearm. We suggest taking your, unloaded, firearm to your local Academy Sports + Outdoors store. After checking in your firearm at customer service an associate will walk with you to the gun department and one of our associates behind the gun bar will be able to assist you in finding the proper mountings needed Bore-sighting and scope mounting are complimentary services for rifles purchased at Academy Sports + Outdoors. However, if you didn't purchase your rifle from Academy Sports + Outdoors, Bore-sighting and scope mounting are available for a small fee.
