Scope mount questions

I have recently  acquired a Model 63, it is “predrilled” for a scope mount and I am considering putting a scope on it. 

Did the factory ever predrill for the scope mount?

What recommendations do you have for scope bases.  I understand Weaver makes one, are there others?

I am also thinking about using a receiver sight instead of a scope, have any of you tried this? 

Can the predrilled holes be used to mount a receiver sight?

Thanks for your input.

Chances are very high your rifle was drilled and tapped after it left the factory. If you could post a pic of the top tang along with the top and left side of the receiver it will be much easier to provide the information you seek.

Richard,

Those holes were drilled after your rifle left the factory. They are 8-40 screws that hold the side plate on the side of the receiver. A side mount receiver sight uses 6-48 screws and the holes in the side are too large and are not positioned correctly for a receiver sight. Your tang is not drilled and tapped for a tang sight.  I believe I do have the proper scope mount for your rifle that would utilize the existing screw holes if you are interested.

I probably am interested but with some questions:

 

Who made the mount?

Is it NIB?

Could you send me a picture of it?

And of course, what price are you asking?

 

Thanks

Richard,

I just dug it out and I am sorry to say that the one I have is for mounting on the side of the barrel (Weaver N2).  Weaver made the one you are seeking to utilize your existing screw holes, I believe the part number for the one you are seeking is a N1. Weaver discontinued those mounts several years ago, chances of finding a new one are slim but used ones are commonly sold on Ebay  WEAVER N1 SIDE MOUNT / RINGS FOR 3/4″ TUBE RIFLE SCOPE COMPLETE | eBay Be advised these mounts use 3/4″ dia. scopes.  The Weaver B4, C3 and  “baby Redfield” come to mind. These scopes have all been out of production for several years but they are readily available on Ebay or Gunbroker. I would expect to pay $30-50 for one of the old Weavers and the Redfield will run you about $200

I have checked three Weaver Charts for rings and bases and they all specify the side mount base  # 2 (N2) for the Win 63. 

So back to a picture and your asking price ?

A company in Florida has the correct ring setup for 1” rings

 

Thanks
