    Scope for Remington Sportsmaster 512?

    So, I have a 1946 Sportsmaster from my grandpa. And was just wondering how hard it would be to mount a simple scope.
    From what Iíve read, itís no easy thing. Anyone know possible options?
    Trying not to disfigure this family heirloom.
    And I donít want to groove the receiver.


    Links appreciated.

    I have an old Remington 121(?) pump that was made long before grooved receivers were ever designed. It was my father's before it was mine. He had a tip off compatible scope mount installed as his eyes dictated the need for a scope. Of course this required drilling and tapping of the receiver but that is considerably less modification than having the receiver grooved. In the case of our rifle it had already been marred by somebody bubba installing a new barrel with a pipe wrench so the installation of the scope mount was inconsequential. The scope mount is similar to the one in the link below.

    Here's how I mounted one that I did not want to drill and tap.

    The scope rail is from a ruger 10-22, Its held down to the barrel with a dovetail blank that I drilled and tapped. The EMT tubing is tapped in 6 places to give an even pressure and stabilize the mount. Only one of the screws goes all the way through to the DT blank.
    It has remained stable for over 10 years. I just removed the rear sight and mocked it up to have the scope mount hang over the receiver. Good Luck. DR
