Default How to mount a scope on this gun?

I am wanting to put a scope on my Remington Speedmaster model 552.





Most mounts I have seen have screws that hold the mount to the gun but I don't see any holes for them.

The grovel is very small and not sure a mount will stay on. My marlin has the same type grove but much larger.

Any ideas?

It's grooved for tipoff rings. Try to find a set of rings with "sharp" edges so it fits in the groove better.

warhawk,

Warne Rings are good rings for the Remington with 3/8 Receiver Grooves. They also have the 22 scope rings for a 1" scope. I am partial to 1" Tube Scopes for the 22 Rifle. You can just see so much clearly vs. the smaller 22 scopes.
I would say you probably want them in Medium Height. You can find them and their products on the Internet.

Warne are good rings. I love the set of millet's I have on my 511x. They are strong enough to be used on centerfire rifles. You can play around with the forever losening Cheap $5 craptastic aluminum ones or you can fork over the green for a set of warne or Millet and be done with it.
