Default T/C High Plains Sporter

I was given a Thompson contender, High Plains Sporter, and i was wondering if anyone knows what site mounts I would need for a scope? Does this model sell a scope mount? There are 2 tiny little screws about 1/3 the way up the barrel.
any help would be appreciated.

I don't think that rifle is a contender. Is this http://www.auctionarms.com/search/displayitem.cfm?itemnum=8323034what you have? The TC Custom Shop probably has a scope base for the rifle.

Underclocked, you are right. Its a Thompson Center..and yes the link shows the pic of the rifle i have. The rifle shoots left and the sights cant be moved anymore, thats why i need scope mounts.
anymore info would be appreciated.

The T/C High Plains Sporter is basically the sameMLas the T/C New Englander. The High Plains Sporter has a pistol grip stock....the New Englander does not.
I thought I had the scope mount for this ML, butwhen I went to look for it I couldn't find it.I must have already sold it on ebay.If you find a mount for the New Englander it will fit this ML.
I'm sure with a little searching and little luck you should still be able to find one.
Good Luck,

You can get an off set mount from Fox Ridge Outfitters. They are expensive, but they do allow the hammer to clear the scope.
