Article Title: HOW TO: SCOPING IT OUT!

BUILDING A HOME-MADE, CLAMP-ON SCOPE BASE TO ADAPT A SHORT, MODERN SCOPE TO A CLASSIC MATCH RIFLE

Description: 50 photos, 17 Pages, 5946 Words

Article Excerpt: This system works. We wrote up the build and guys realized they could have their cake and eat it too! The older match and target rifles were back in shooting form, while using a short, modern scope! Of course, as with most things designed as an afterthought, it wasn’t perfect. The system did position the scope a bit higher then optimal. The ½” X ½” hollow-steel tubing raised the scope’s eyepiece. A Weaver 63B scope base could add another 1/8 of unwanted height. The Weaver 63B scope base only had cross-slots in a couple of places, thought it is easy to add additional cross-slots with a 1/8 thick file. Many fellows put an inexpensive, slip-on cheek piece on the stock for better cheek weld in 3P and offhand shooting. I received a lot of fan-email from fellows telling me how they built the scope base / mount and got their rifles shooting. Fellows were winning matches with this system! As I said, the basic design was correct. But I felt with a more judicious selection of parts, it could be much improved.
