Default Scoping a Renegade+Hawken

I am looking into scoping both my .54 Renegade and my son's .50 Hawken for this fall as my eyesight isn't up to iron sights any more! What mount doI need?[not high see thru]I thought TC /Weaver made an offset [to clear hammer] mt that replaces the rear sight? I don't want to drill a bunch of holes as the .54 has a 1-70" GM pipe.What is the TC #9996 mt? I called TC but they were no help......Harold

FoxRidge Outfitters used to sell the off set mount for the Hawkins and Renegade. You remove the rear sight and the small screw at the back of the barrel near the tang. The base mounts to that. Some advise, put quick release mounts on the scope. It will help when it comes to cleaning the rifle. You pull the scope and can still give it a water bath and scrub the bases easier...

I have some plates but am not sure how they would work for you. Checking them, they are a plate the attaches to a White Mountain Carbine, Pennsylvania Hunter orRenegade. Ibelieve thisplate then allows you to put a base of somesort on the different mounting screw holes on them. I found a place that had a bunch of them and bought them out.






That one listed on the auction looks like a off set base. But is is made by Weaver so I could not swear to that.

Weaver made the original mts for TC , that much I got from TC.Do the quick release mts maintain thier zero when taken on and off?Micheal's made a threaded nipple that had surgical hose attached to siphon the barrel without scope removal.Sounds good in theory at least.............Thanx Harold

I had a plastic hose rig I used on a Kentucky and one I used on a under hammer; I made them all they were was a old nipple that was burned out drilled out so the hole where the on the end where the cap goes was that size all the way through then I mounted the clear plastic hose on it with silicon adhesive. They were not real fast but they worked quite well. To use them I took the shooting nipple out and put the modified one in and poured boiling water through a funnel into the barrel it drained down through the modified nipple into a can the I worked the barrel with a ramrod with a jag and an air tight patch so it would suck the water back out of the can and into the barrel then push it back out again.

Dixie Gun Works sells Quic-kee removable scope mounts for 1 inch and 15/16th inch barrels with no drilling or tapping necessary. I'll bet thatit's a higher mountthan a simpleWeaver base, but the advantage is that it's only temporary.

For 1 inch barrels:

For 15/16th barrels:

I use a Warne QD ring. I have no problems taking them off a rifle and then putting them back on. They always shoot in the same place.
