    Well if you can do math... Find one that can be cut down and take it to the high school or college votech machine shop.

    Found a solution.
    Leupold Rifleman Detachable See-Thru High Rings (on Zon for under $20). Yea!

    These are narrow rings so they did not have a big foot print and since they are Leupold's I was not worried about lots of torque.

    AND I can still see iron sights. Big Yea!

    Will test it out soon (and advise only if a prob).

    FYI's
    - Leupold rings #57323
    - BSA 2-7x32 AO Compact scope. (under $60, Wally's etc.)

    Short version on the bolt action:
    It's just fine.

    Long version:
    First I have to say that I have no other bolt guns. The RB22 is the first one. I have some auto's but wanted a go-slow concentrate on the shot bolt gun because of their rep for better accuracy, SV ammo is good (better?) and can be quieter. So I picked the best inexpensive bolt rifle, according to lots of reading/review, available today. Start low-cost then move up as my skills allow. Could not find the RB22 in any gun shop. Ordered it blind base on writeups and that it is a clone, from the manufacturer themselves, of the well known Mossberg 802.

    After some prep and 300 rounds the bolt action has smoothed out a lot. Really noticeable and glad of it. It is not butter smooth or hefty like some big-bore rifles I've shot. Nor does it feel like a well machined polished tool like the CZ bolt belonging to my friend that I have shot on occasion. The bolt action on the RB22 did feel well made, had no hangups and locks down convincingly. I ragged the bolt down when I got it home, put on some quality synth gun oil, cycled it 50 times and ragged it down again. Big improvement with just that. Now that I have 300 rounds through it it has taken another good step forward. During the 100 shots I did last week I did not even think about or notice the bolt action one bit... just POA/POI/weld learning with a new gun. I'd buy it again.

    The PMR30 sure looks fun. However it is on the far end of the .22 spectrum from a RB22.
    Q: What's a person to do?
    A: Get both!
