Here's hoping that some of you may have started on the double rifle journey as I need to, with a less expensive over and under.

I just got a very nice Valmet 412 30-06 and would like to avoid adding 40% to the guns cost by buying the ridiculously expensive removable scope mount.

Has anyone here had one drilled and tapped for a standard scope base, and if so which base (original application) works?

Thank you,
CHAZ

Here is an option. I looked at it a few years ago.

Also I understand that it is an 11mm rail with a cut out for the recoil lug/clamp. You should be able to modify a mount for an airgun, I used one on my Bernardelli combo for a while but my rail on the rifle was long enough to use three rings.

The 11mm dovetail seems short at only about 3", I'm going to see if I can find a high end air gun mount that would fit.
Thanks!

Just found that BKL technologies;
BKL
has many options for 11mm bases. Even some with the offset I might need to move the scope back far enough to eliminate needing a long eye relief scope.
Thanks again,
CHAZ
