Well, here's a picture of the old thing, I would guess scope mount. I wish I knew the history.
Yes, with the more forward location, I'd agree that it was probably a side scope mount. Looks like whoever installed it also notched the stock slightly to give the bottom edge of the mounting plate some clearance.
Many of those older .22 rifles are very solid performers, but the lack of an easy scope mounting system is one of the things that keeps me from buying many of them. My eyes just aren't up to using iron sights any more.
I wonder if something like this would fit that rifle? It was in a box of stuff I recently inherited from my dad.
It does look likely, at least from the offset.
If you are in AL or a contiguous state, there are several at one other local shops here. PM me if you want me to go by and get the specifics. You might be able to buy, ship and transfer for under 200. Price was fairly cheap.
MAC and ScarFace have about the same recommendations as I.
I used to collect military trainers. Many of them are single shots, beginning with a
Martini Henry converted for the British NRA in .22 LR. In the past 35 years a number of trainers have been imported to the USA. Cugirs are pretty inexpensive (and rough). You may be able to find one whose stock someone has "imporoved".
My first gun was a Mossberg 42 MB that I was allowed to shoot single rounds out of at a Junior NRA club. I still am drawn to single shot .22s, especially with peep sights.
Good luck, you'll have a great time searching.
The Stevens/Savage Crackshot was a single shot falling block made in the early part of the 20th century and discontinued at some point but re-introduced by Savage as the Savage/Stevens model 72 Crackshot in 1972 and made from 1972-1987.
We shoot 22lr a lot now. We have several old single shots we take every time. Bullets last longer and they are a blast to shoot.
We will shot the pistols a while then shoot the rifles.
I have a old revelation that I'm wanting to put peep sights on.
