    Default Scope mounting on a break shotgun.

    Hey, I have an old Stevens savage, singleshot 12 that I use for turkey. I'm trying to mount a scope on it but I am not in the market to have my barrel drilled and tapped. Any suggestions on an alternative way of mounting it. I'm willing to have like a bracket comin around from the foregrip if that's possible. I don't really care if its a little ugly. If someone could just find me a part and give me an address to purchase it, it would be much appreciated.

    I will check for you later and get back to you on this post, but there are a slew of companies with barrel clamps with picatinny rails on them. I don't know if this will work for you, the eye relief might be too long. Maybe a pistol scope? I saw an offset rail in cabella's or the sportsman's guide I think that just might do the trick.

    Personally i have never understood why you would want a scope on a shotgun ... let alone an old Stevens ! ... however for the sake of argument if your going after turkey have you considered a ghost ring with a raised front bead ? , a friend of mine uses this setup and swears by it .... just a thought .

    I could see a reason. I don't have one on mine personally, but if you were shooting slugs. I really don't know for sure but it could help in that situation. I know that an old 16 gauge of mine threw the slugs a couple inches to the left @ 50 yards. I knew this and could compensate. It could help in that situation, but so could the ghost ring set up.

    By using a red dot or scout type scope you can get on target pretty quick and by pattering your gun you can zero so that the thickest part of your pattern is on the bull . This can help with head shots reducing the amount of lead in the body of game . If you ever been chowing down on some tasty cookings and bite into some shot , it will get your attention .
    I pondered on it for a long time , finally did it on a H&R 10 gauge . Turned out to be a good move .
    As stated above you will have to look into some sort of mount that clamps onto the barrel and use a red dot , scout , or pistol scope . Good luck and I think you will like it if you get it set up . Kenneth
