I test fired this old drilling yesterday and It feels pretty good. I hit a gallon water jug a 50yards on the first shot. I will shoot it a few times on paper to figure up how it really shoots.

I ran across some pinch type high scope rings in my junk pile and thought I would try this. This drilling has a couple of dovetails with stops on the front of them which I guess is for mounting claws base. I put these on and tightened them down. They are tight. What are y'alls thoughts on this, worth trying?

R.Marshall,
Yes, It is absolutely worth trying. I suggest, however, that you shorten the bottom of the "feet" so that the joint between the two sides is even ( so the scope tube fits correctly).Also take the gun with you when shopping for a scope and select one that can be mounted far enough back to allow useable eye relief.
Mike

R.Marshall: Congratulations on a useful find, with good engraving to boot. You are on the right track for scope mounting. Those original clip mounts would be hard to find. Your dovetail portion looks to be in the range of 15 or 16mm. which means you should be able to modify some CZ rings for their small action rifle (was it the 527, memory fails). You will only have to get rid of all or most of their square recoil stop with a file and some instant blue. It is possible to shave off one side of the CZ rings if need be to get a tight fit. One of our members on dgj also accomplished the same thing by brazing onto the screw attached portion of the dovetail and filing to fit. I also have a mount like yours. The neat thing is you have a built in recoil stop on your bases. I especially enjoy the ultra low profile of the bases which makes shotgunning so unencumbered in regard to the sight plane. Judging from how the barrels seem to stand out from the frame, I suspect you have a light petite frame which should make a 12 ga. a delight to carry and use. Enjoy! Steve

Good picture Skeetex....and those rings are a lot lower than the see-through variety.
