The Vortex scopes are generally regarded as good to go. I've never had one myself though. Their scout offering is a bit heavy for a scout scope and I think I'd be looking at the Burris 2.75x or 2-7x if you wanted to save a little cash over the Leupold. The price is good though... even better than the Burris. I will say that scopes have come and gone for me over the last five years but my Leupold Scout Scope is still here and is still my preferred optic for normal hunting situations.
Rings are interesting because generally scout scopes can use some pretty low rings thanks to their skinny objective lenses. Warne Quick Release rings are well regarded but I've been running Weaver Quad Lock rings because they're the lightest ones I've found. They also happen to be dirt cheap which is pretty cool too.
For 30mm rings the lowest and lightest I've found have been the Vortex rings.
Measure for your rings twice and buy once. Those with more lever gun experience can advise you better but I'd worry about the receiver interfering with the lowest rings so you might need mediums. For example, on my bolt gun the eye piece of my scope is lower than the rail with a 32mm objective in the lowest 30mm Vortex rings. In contrast a 28mm objective sits just above the rail in one inch Weaver Quad Lock Low rings.
This means the 32mm objective won't clear a full length XS rail and that's one of the reasons I took it off. I actually ran into comb height issues (worse than what I had before) when I was running the XS rail on my Ruger Scout. Thus, if a scout scope is in your future I'd recommend staying away from full length rails unless you need the comb dropped.
Edit: For reference the comb on a 1895GBL is to low for me with iron sights so YMMV and all that.
