Mounting a scope on a 92 stainless octagonal barrel

Postby Drew66 » 13 Sep 2012 09

Hi, is it possible to mount a scope on my 92 stainless. I can’t see any obvious way, and wondered if I was missing something. I was going down this route, as my eyes are not what they used to be, and could do with a little magnification. Many thanks for your thoughts.

If you run a search through the "92" forum, you will see several topics on this subject. The bottom line is that it is not easy or inexpensive to do so if your rifle is not drilled and tapped for the Rossi 92 mount. The mount screw holes are under the rear sight but I would seriously doubt that the octagon barrel was considered for this work. Might need to find a Marlin 1894?
