Wildcat bases
 
What are my options for weaver style bases for the wildcat? I think someone said weaver #15. Is there any other options?

Virtually anything that will fit a 3/8 groove should work - too many choices.

Ok, i read that. Is the weaver the only option then?

Is there Something Special You Are Trying To Do?
 
A weaver base is a good choice if you need a weaver base.

There are many one-piece scope mounts that will work.
As well as two-piece mounts.

For starters look at the BKL Technologies RINGS & MOUNTS

I am for sure going with weaver style mount. I don't want anything to do with the grooved receiver. What i am getting at, is there any other brands beside Weaver that will fit on the wildcat target model. I know there are a ton of brands but none of them specifically say for wildcat.

3/8 Dovetail Groove Adapter to Weaver Rail
 
Opps ... not a Weaver rail. But, Weaver sourced mounts - ohh, I get it now.
I'm not aware of any other manufacturer that produces a scope base
that will work on the Winchester Wildcat.

But, if you're trying to avoid directly attaching a scope to the 3/8 groove.
Then, you might consider using a BKL Technologies DOVETAIL TO WEAVER adapter
_to convert the 3/8 groove to a Weaver rail.
A Weaver rail will give you give you much more flexibility for mounting optics.

I just came across this thread. I'm thinking that if you check Weaver's scope mounting chart to find out what other guns the #15 bases are designed to fit, you may then find that other manufacturer's scope bases/mounts made to fit those guns may also be usable with yours. If you're still looking, it might be worth a try.

Personally, I am using the Millett .22 Angle-loc rings on my Wildcat Target and am quite satisfied with the set-up.
