Scope rail for CM-2



Log in to see fewer ads
You may have read here awhile ago of my frustration with being able to obtain a scope rail for my "new" Adult Model CM-2. The problem arises since the Adult CM-2 has it's receiver grooved only on the rear "half"; that section behind the port. Reasoning, I guess, for doing this is that the CM-2 is intended for aperture sights and the factory groove is long enough to accomodate the sight assembly that comes with the rifle. Well, I wanted to scope mine, and I really wanted to use Burris Signature rings, since I am a BIG fan of the virtues of that system. Nothing available. I "settled" for a BKL mount, but was never able to get it to work right since I need to adjust the scope front "down" to allow me to shoot 100 yards with subsonic ammo. Besides, the BKL's are downright UGLY. What to do?

Jeff at M Werks LLC, of Traverse City, Michigan, to the rescue! He has made me
(and will make for you) a Weaver base rail that clamps down on the receiver groove and extends forward past the bridge to provide some slots at that point for the front ring. Photos will be on his website soon. Get in touch with him if you want one!

Excellent photos ... how about some photos of the details of your scope.
Make, Model, Options, Price ... etc.

couldn't you just get it drilled and tapped

for one base in the front. a good gunsmith ought to be
able to line it up and find one thick enough or shim it to
align with the back one.

As long as you don't want to single feed the rifle (looks a bit tight for that to my old eyes) and don't have ejection issues that is a most awesome solution OS, well made to be certain.

I HAVE to single feed it, Gerald; it's a single shot rifle. That was my concern with abinok's solution, above. Actually, feeding and ejection are fine with the M Werks LLC rail.

Any side scope mounts

Is anyone making or looking into making a side mount scope mount that attaches to the old CM-2's so that no drilling will have to be done to mount a scope on top? I suggested working with a Ruger Mini 14 scope mount, dont have the equipment to make one or modify a Mini mount.

Ive ran about 600 rounds through mine since dropping it on and never had any issues getting ammo into or out of the gun.

its more astetically pleasing ill give you that... but then again, my olga is no trophy... just wins them
maybe im just too broke to admire what I can't currently justify affording.

OldSwede ... How much did you rail cost?

I just ordered one today, Jeff is really nice. He's using the dimensions from OldSwede's model with a few measurements given by me to assure the correct fit. He's also sending it to me unpaid , so if it doesn't fit I can send it back for correction. I'm flabbergasted. People in California become jaded. I really liked the elegance of the mount, and how it looks really solid. I think it's going to be about $100 give or take with shipping, but to Jeff thousandths of inches matter alot. So you're paying a premium for attention to detail.

Yes, Jeff is a stand-up guy. He had my CM-2 in hand when he made mine, so it fits exactly. I'm sure yours will, too. He is a true craftsman; when you get your rail, you will see where the money went.

Yeah, "flyover country" is different; Western Michigan is better still. You have just found out one reason why we like it here........

Actually, feeding and ejection are fine with the M Werks LLC rail.
If abionks were to have a machinist mill a slot on his scope mount
just above the ejection post like OldSwedes custom mount.
Then, abinoks off-the-shelf mount would be just as funtional
as the M Werks LLC rail and less expensive.

... quality never comes cheap ...
And, if you don't get the best ... you're just making do.
