Scope on a Traditions Crockett .32



Log in to see fewer ads
My shooting of the Crockett is severely limited by 70 yo eyes. I recently installed a Mag Spark 209 primer ignition after a little drill and dremel work. Using light BlackHorn 209 loads the system seems to work and I am interested in finding out the accuracy that this combo will produce. I would like to install a scope mount. The only solution I can find is to drill and tap the barrel for a weaver or picatinny rail. Has anyone else been down this road or is there a better or easier solution I should consider?

Not sure on the mounting, but a friend of mine built one of those from a kit. He is super accurate with it and it is his most used squirrel gun now. Good luck with your project.

I've read on RFC somewhere where folks have actually glued scope mounts on receivers, successfully. Try putting up a new thread in the Scope Forum.

I have ordered two different flat bottom picitanny rails for my Crockett. I may try your glue suggestion initially for testing to see if drilling and tapping is worthwhile.

I have done this using Loctite 380 which has milled rubber fibers in it: https://www.henkel-adhesives.com/us/...ctite_380.html

Be sure to carefully degrease everything before applying adhesive.

Great tip, I'll definitely look into that adhesive.
Thanks
