Hi Guys

Recently bought a very old and somewhat abused 69A. On the receiver there are 2 holes with screws in them (one behind bolt opening and one in front of the bolt opening)  and markings that look like it might have had a  scope on. Has anybody seen this before or perhaps have some advise as to what I can use to be able to put a scope on again? This gun will be fully refurbished and restored to as far as I can find parts. Being in South Africa does not help this cause but I will try and source most of the parts from the US.

Can you find anything like a Weaver Tip-off base in S.A.?  It's just an aluminum strip with a dovetail on top, several different companies make them here, on which any .22 tip-off scope mount can be attached.  Two screws & maybe some epoxy should be quite enough to hold it in place.

Lots of Weaver T mounts on ebay.  Stroebel's book on scopes states that the Weaver T-1, T-3 or T-03 can be used with the Winchester 69, and all of them allow for regular sights to be used in conjunction with the scope.  I don't know which one was secured by two screws, though.  Good Luck!

Doesn't matter--just drill through the base to match the position of the holes.
