I took a slightly different approach and mounted a Magpul rail section to the side of the stock with epoxy and wood screws.  The rail section is just long enough for me to run a TLR-1 HL on it and also do double-duty as my front sling mount.  Rear sling mount is incorporated into my stock pack straps, so that I can sling the rifle and have it lie flat against my body.  Set up like this it rides a lot like my current AR and the M4 variants I carried during military life.

Got a little range time in with the GSR, just using the irons, (scope is on the way) at 100 yards, 3 rounds:

1st group Win. power point 150gr 2" group, 2"down, 2" left.

2nd Radway green milsurp 147gr 1 1/2 group, 2" down.

3rd Rem core-lokt 150 gr, 1 1/2" group 2" down, 1" left.

 I didn't adjust the sights, I'll do that after some more rounds. I did go through another 20 rounds of the mil-surp at steel and some clays at 50 yards and 25 just running it.

I am very happy so far.

I almost went the mcmillan stock route when replacing the wood stock on the GSR. I chose instead to just get the Ruger synthetic stock and paint it. Very happy with the results.

Time to reconfirm zero and it will be ready for deer/elk season starting on the 22nd.

Friends don't let friends install this on their rifle. I had expected it to be much shorter. At least it was only $8. Now it's in a drawer.

I would think that device might throw off accuracy, as well.  Thoughts?

I think you're right. It might end up on my shotgun although I guess it's pointless there as well since i've got the Magpul forend.

I was being lazy and not wanting to mill out space for a pic rail in the forend. I'll likely still be lazy and not do it :)

If it helps your plans for your rifle at all, take a look at the second and third pictures in my post below, for where I mounted my light.  My fingers are long enough to manipulate it, and I haven't experienced much detriment from having the light on the side of my stock versus the bottom.  The reason I decided to mount the short pic rail on the side instead of the bottom is that I wanted to retain the option of using my Harris bipod, and having a pic rail on the bottom would have impeded that.  Even before I had the synthetic stock on mine, I had mounted a short pic rail on the wood laminate stock.

Yes, I stare at your rifle a lot :) I think I might copy the same location. I think your post is also what made me want to put the QD swivel cups on my rifle as well although that will take a short while longer since my friend reclaimed his drill press and I don't want to freehand it.

So I ordered a SKD Tac MSM sling and think I want to do QD side mount cups on the GSR....But I would love to find a stock that is more traditional tactical bolt gun (vertical handgrip, flat fore-end, potentially adj. comb)...I wish Ruger would make one. although a folding stock for the GSR would be awesome as well. Does anyone here know of any stocks besides ruger and the mcmillian stock that would work? Any experience installing QD swivel cups (top or bottom of the but of the stock?)

When we first started issuing 6920s about '08 TLR1s were popping their battery compartments open during firing sequences.

We now use Surefire Fury lights and no problems.

So I got a left handed RGS in 308 because of this thread, thinking about making it my main gun.

I've ditched the picatinny rail and I'm liking it so far - probably about 100 rounds through it.  Having some problems with ejection, but hoping it will smooth out with use.  I was firing some surplus '75 Hirtenberger, but it would occasionally lock up the bolt so I couldn't eject the fired round.  Would have to let it cool then it would work.  My guess is that the 7.62x51 NATO ammo was too hot and locking up the lugs or something.  Switched to Privi 308 ammo and so far it's been fine.

The only rifle that might be better is the new Tikka Arctic (http://www.recoilweb.com/tikka-t3x-arctic-131608.html ) minus the wooden stock.  I'm really liking those sights.  Anything like that for the GSR?

Thinking about getting a McMillan HTG stock.  My question is do I get the adjustable cheekpiece or no?  With the wood stock, my cheek rest brings me level with the bottom of the rear sight housing.

Any new developments for the rifle since the thread was started?

Thanks all!

Jay

My son’s GSR has ejection problems as well with a variety of ammo. Need to call Ruger.

So I was shooting my GSR offhand using the metal mag that came with the rifle. Had s tance similar to this:




When the baseplate slid off on the first shot. I was looking at it and wondering if I should put a pair of tack welds on it, one front and one back.

What are your folk's opinions? Or should I use the mag as a range mag and buy something better? Been eyeballing the Alpha mags, but $65!

Toss the OEM mags and get either Alpha or Magpul Pmags for it.

I suggest using a field stance for the rifle rather than a formal Camp Perry SAFS Offhand stance. This is meant to be a dynamically used rifle, rather than a match rifle.

1) I ended up adding a cheekpiece to my synthetic stock to get a good cheek weld. It added a little weight but really improved my shooting because I too see the bottom of the rear sight with the factory stock.

2) I've been told the new Ruger Poly magazines control the rounds at the shoulder. That's a good thing because it keeps the bullet tips from getting messed up under recoil. Protecting bullet tips was one of the more obscure Scout Rifle requirements set forth by Jeff Cooper.
 

3) I've found that I really like this PRS inspired "match saver" for carrying a couple of extra rounds or a couple of bunny busters like in the photo.

4) The most recent Gunsite class reported a lot of problems with the GSR's going through the class. The theory is new production GSR's have poor QC.
