I have a Burris mini red dot sight on mine with a GG&G mount. I suggest you go out and look at the ones you are considering and take into account what you want to do with it.

Scope choice will depend on the type of hunting you're doing and also the type of country you're hunting in, as in are you hunting in a heavily wooded area, or do hunt mainly in open country?
Generally, I'd say (personal opinion here) any good quality brand of scope in a 4X32 or 3-9X40 should do the job.
My personal preference is 3-9X40.
I put a Nikon Buckmaster 3x9 on mine. Its real nice. I also have a red dot for it I use from time to time.
You must first decide what role your rifle will fill hunting, home defense, plinking, target, etc. The standard and ranch models are not know for there accuracy (over say 100 yards), I know I own several, which is why they make a target model. One of mine has a red dot and the other a 1.5 x 5 x 32 power scope. I use mine for home defense, and the other for varmint (in the North East varmints are usually close), and plinking. Ruger has excellent factory scope rings and offers them for many scope styles, so it's up to you what power and how much you want to spend on a scope.
