Question Green Mountain Scope Base???

I learned this season that my eyesight may be fine for open sight target shooting but in low light conditions I just cant see the darn things. Even tried the flourescent paint and still a no go. I am going to scope either my .54 cal or .58 cal Green Mountain barrels that are both on Renegade stocks (drop-in barrels, 32" 1:70). What type of scope base do you guys recomend? I do not like see thru's. I used to have my hands on an offset Thompson Center base that used the 2 rear sight screws and the rear breach screw but I sold it to a friend. I wish I had it back as I believe it would have worked. I know I can just use a flat weaver base but I would like to try and avoid drilling any extra holes. Need some help guys

As that famous Superhero "Captain Hindsight" would say, you should have hung on to that TC offset base. They are getting mighty scarce and are in high demand. The TC number for that base is 9930. You might monitor ebay and AuctionArms for one. They show up now and then, but not real often. The only other real option is to drill and tap for a flat Weaver style base.

Shooter50,
I don't know if this will help you, but it was the path I chose with my Renegade. Its a blank and all you have to do is measure and drill. However, I would consider the hammer clearance on the scope. I went with a sightmark AR compact 3x9x42 scope and a medium ring. This will allow you to mount a scope without drilling holes in the rifle as long a you use the rear sight mounting holes and the first screw hole on the tang. Just a thought.

Ergo Grip 12 Inch X .400in Aluminum U.m.p. Blank, no Holes-Black Anodized 4757
