7 1/2" Redhawk NO-Drill scope mount
Just received this beautiful scope mount made by Weigand gunsmiths today........... and boy it was worth the 2 month wait until the larger size made it into production.
What is very special about this mount is the NO-Drill feature !! So if you own one of the older Redhawks that is not drilled and tapped for a scope ...this is the ticket.
It takes about 15 minutes to install the mount .......with NO permenant modifications to the original revolver. Simple as removing both the front and rear sights and installing the anodized Aluminum scope mount. Since the mount travels the entire length of the barrel, it really looks cool and is rock solid.
I plan on installing a Millet Red dot scope on this .44 Ruger Redhawk, because when I bought it I found it to be the most accurate handgun I have ever owned [ shooting .44 spl. rounds ]. It will literally print a one hole group out to 20 yds using a bench rest. All I needed was a better sight system than the standard front blade and rear notched sight.
The mount from Weigand cost me about $80 total with shipping ........ and as with all his products they are perfection in metal. If you need to mount a Red dot or any other scope on your 7 1/2 " barrel Redhawks ...... I would give this mount a good hard look .......... I don't think you can buy a better mount for any price !!
