Default how to scope

I purchased an older Springfield model 87 at the last gun show and would like to scope it. The receiver has already been drilled for it. Where can I find bases for it. The holes are about 3" apart. Thanks.

Your best bet is going to be to take it into a gun shot and see what bases fit it. I am willing to place a small sum of money that they are going to be Weaver #11 bases.

Try a Weaver #2 side-mount base. (Part #48402)
