Howdy Folks, First time on here. I am a gunsmith in CA and my customer wants to mount a scope on his. Has anyone done this? Any tips or tricks?

Thank you for your consideration!

Sleepy

Yep , mount on a spare cover so you can return it to original . Your pocketbook or your heirs will thank you at selling time .

This sounds like a great idea to me.  If there are any board members capable of making the thicker top plate, I'll take 2. How bout it Deerslayer?

Would like to put one on my R75 SA clone franken-gun!

Thanks for this great Board!

How about a mount that goes in the side and attached through the two trigger grip pins.
