Have my sights and scope it too?
I'm getting the Henry 22 Frontier, it has standard rails on the receiver, and an octagon barrel and I'm putting a Weaver g4 (tube scope from the 40s) on it to get that classic scoped, lever action look and feel to it. The problem is I want to be able to use the scope when I want and use the sights when I want. Whats the solution to this? Will a side mount help me do this? Is there a way to take off the scope and reattach without having to level the scope everytime?

I ran across something called a weaver pivot mount. I've seen no demo on how this works, maybe this is what I'm looking for? If you've got some stills and are willing to share them I'd appreciate it.

Well, I've not had a lot of luck in researching this information so I just sort of spit balled it (I have a feeling this may end up biting me in the ass):confused:. . . I figured I needed the detachable scope rings and a mount that I've found is used in conjunction with detachable scope rings, I just don't know if these models are compatible. I guess we'll find out. They're both from weaver and they're both from the same collection.
WEAVER 3/4" PIVOT MOUNT SCOPE RINGS- its worth mentioning that the box these rings are in say "detachable mount" Uggggh.

If this doesn't work I'm just going to dump my rifle in a gunsmiths hands and cut my losses.
