Yes, there is. I have a Buris Fastfire II on my MK II, and it has a mount that fits the rear sight dovetail. It fits the FFIII, also.

MGW Ruger mounts use the rear dove tale to mount a weaver rail on the bull barrel. See photo:

OP here. I wound up going with the Weigand rail. You drift out the rear sight and drift in a square steel mounting block. Works really well, and totally reversible. Why put holes in the receiver if you don't have to? This was my conclusion anyway. YMMV, of course.

I didn't like the Weigand rail. It's too high & did look right on a Mark II. Went with the Williams Firesights.

That's what's great about these pistols. Set it up just as it suits you! With an AT3 red dot, this afternoon at 15 yards, I put thirty rounds of Federal Automatch through a hole you could cover with a nickel. With that kind of accuracy, I think 15 yards could get downright boring as a shooting distance. This is what folks mean when they say, "the pistol is more accurate than I am." I can now swap the red dot back and forth between the Govt. Target and a Target 678.

I am lucky to own a really nice stainless GTM, and don`t think I could bring myself to drill holes in it. There are so many other Rugers that are already set up for that, and they are relatively inexpensive. At 69, I can still use irons with no problem, rifle or pistol.

Id NEVER d&t any gun....

Couple yrs ago I bought a Savage 99 w/ a cheap scope on it from a fellow that bought it from a friend. I didnt realize that it had been d&t by someone other than the factory. Id paid couple hundred less had I known.. My fault..

Ditto for this mount. I have a modified 10" mark II that I used this mount on. It is rock solid and required no drilling. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again.
