idea?

i bought a M44 a few years back. none of the # match and the stock has had repairs, good ones so i'm figuring arsonel rebuild. i thought of getting like a 870 saddle mount and modifying it to sit on the left of the reciever to mount a scope. i know i can get the sniper mount and just remove the rear sight but was hoping for more than a pistol scope

if you bought it, a trucker brought it

Re: idea?

Those 879 saddle mounts are really very soft alloy or aluminum. I use one on a 870. I don't think it would work or hold zero.

I have a M44, and really haven't figured out the way to go. If you get it figured out, let me know. We could sell a million of them, it is a common conundrum.

Re: idea?

i have a machine shop at my disposal so any idea you have i might be able to try. it was an idea for a mount already made. i'm thinking if i can get the scope ofset to the left then i wouldn't have to mess with the bolt, and could mount a good high power scope on it

if you bought it, a trucker brought it

Re: idea?

You really need an offset mount that is so offset as to let that ugly straight bolt pass the lens. That would mean, probably 2 inches offset; doubt that is practical.
The alternative is a cantelure mount that extends back fat tnough to be short of the raised bolt when it is closed; again not real practical.

From my review, the straight bolt must go to be practical. If you come up with a design I'll volunteer to test. If is unique I know a good patent attorney that works for venison.
