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.

The 69a has a factory peep sight that mounts on yhe side ,,it does not have screw holes on the top so a mount for scope has to start with a side mount of some kind ..

I have a Winchester Model 69A with a Weaver B4 scope. It has a side mount rings with 4 screws. looks like the base was made to conform to the rounded part on the top of the receiver.

Just saw that my mount is a Weaver N3. vintagegunscopes.com has a picture of the N-series application sheet, which shows either the N2 (low mount) or N3 (high mount) can be used for the Model 69 or 69A (among other applications)
