    Single shot scope mounting

    Let's see your scope mounting for single shot rifles.

    Thinking of getting one or a lever as a short bush gun now that I need a replacement.

    I have an aero precision scope mount but the cheek weld will probably give parallax issues.

    Currently going to dig up @vipers or @rossi.45 thread on them.

    Does the rifle not come either equipped with a dovetail or D&Ted for a base?
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    What ever you get make sure you mount the scope as low as physically possible to aid in proper eye alignment for quick shotgun like snap shooting .

    The baikal I'm looking at does have a dove tail. Most use an air gun mount off trademe.

    That's the thing. A lot seem to be fairly high.

    How are you with iron sights? I have experimented with multiple different mounts on my Baikal and keen going back to the irons as it just makes it more handy in the thick shit I seem to always find.

    Am going to probably shorten it as much as possible and suppress at some point soon so will need to find a mount I can live with.
    @Russian_22there is a thread somewhere on the forum about this. Even as far as machining off dovetail and having picatinny mounted.

    Whatever you use, there is one thing to check. The ramp on the back part of the baikal action is slightly higher than the dovetail. If your mount (whatever one you choose) overhangs the rear of the dovetail, you will need to file the ramp down so that the action closes completely and easily. This may help with ideas. I have a few options here and have done a few if you want help. Low is better, but watch eye relief. With a normal length scope you may find you have to remove the open sights. Most of the one piece ones are a bit high, there are some low ones around.

    Baikals have a 12 mm dovetail, so any 22 mount will go on as low as possible otherwise you will need a riser.
    A red dot will avoid parallax issues and is good for 200 yds on deer pigs or goats.
    People I feel are too hung up on scopes and magnification and have by and large forgotton that open sights have secured more game in this country than any other type. A red dot is also superb for snap shooting. Give it a go.

    Yeah missed that post further down as I was trying to upload photos...

    Ruger No.1 in .204, this thing is a laser, love it but do not use nearly enough, hoping to change that though..

    @timattalon that's what I had in mind for the reference.

    Another option could be adding a cheek riser to get correct alignment. If you end up with a wood stock Baikal you will likely also have to smooth some of the stock anyway.

    Love my lil Russian but quality wood work is not from factory.
    @Marty Henry, mine measures a snug 11mm. However they come out of a tractor factory I believe so yeah...

    the 2nd one works just great,with added bonus being one piece the rings HAVE to be aligned properly.
