Drill & tap for rail

Hello all, not sure if this is the right place but...I was wanting to ask if it was possible to drill and tap the barrell of a single shot shotgun to mount a weaver rail.
If so, I wonder who in the SE, Pottstown, Reading area could do such a thing.
Any help would be appericated, GT

Guess that would depend if there is enough metal in the area that needs to be drilled. Most single shot shotguns seem kinda thin. There is a guy in the Lehigh Valley that will be able to help you, Lester Knipe (Varmit Shop)610-395-8146. I dont know if he is to far from you but you can give him a call with the make, model, and gauge and he should be able to tell you if it can be done.

Good luck, Tony

I've done many of these. Usually NEF or H&R toppers. thsy make very nice slug/deer guns and even turkey guns with a red dot.
I use weaver aluminum mounts and mate to the specific top curve. takes me about one hour.
Any decent gunsmith can do this. Guessing less than $50 plus base change ($9).

Maybe you could do one more? PM me with your location if interested. This is a Springfield 940 E 12 Ga. at least 1/8" thick at the breech.
Thanks GT
