Default Thompson/ New Englander

Does anyone know if they make scope mounts for it. I'm not neccessarily going to buy them. I'm a little partial to the iron sights (seeing how it is the primitive weapon season),however, I'm was thinking about increasing the max effective range by using a scope this year by getting some dope on150-200 yds. Seeing how some of my counterparts have upgraded to the supposedly technologically superior, newer made weapons this year. They were making some pretty accurate shots with scope alot further out than what I'd be comfortable with on my ol'New Englander's irons. Thanks in advance.

Yes they do make scope mounts for the T/C New Englander. Contact Thompson Center for the bases that will fit.
