I have 2-7X Burris scopes both old and new, a 4X Leopold, a Simmons, as well as UltraDot/MatchDot Red Dot Sights. I also have multiple Weaver Classic Extreme Rifle scopes on my Encore barrels. (Way to big for a revolver)
I have always used a 30mm UltraDot on my 480 Ruger Super RedHawk. Ruger will normally swap the 1" Rings for 30mm if your rings are still new, and unused. I prefer the Red Dot on my woods revolver. I much prefer a 30mm tube over the 1" also.
One consideration using a scope, make sure you get one that is very Bright and Clear. My older Burris 2-7X scopes are no where near as clear as the new ones I have. I was starting to swap out my older Burris scopes for MatchDots when I broke a Burris and had it replaced with a new one. I now have several more new Burris scopes. I am very impressed with the clarity of the new Burris scopes.
