Which GP100 scope base is best??

Post by jpickar »

I am looking to mount a scope on my 6", half lug, GP100 so I can hunt javalina in AZ with it in Feb. I have done a internet search but really haven't come up with anything except for Weigand which is out of stock everywhere. Any help is appriciated.

As far as I know,, the Weigand is the only dependable mount available. Maybe a few WTB ads on as many forums, checking Gunbroker, or even (I hate suggesting it,) sleezebay,, !

Weigand probably best one if you can find one. B-Square might have made one. Try sleezebay for one. Another option is to have a Gunsmith tap it for a mount.

I was afraid of that, that Weigand is the one to get. Even Weigand is back ordered.

Ok, then it's sleezebay, gunbroker, or placing a WTB ad here & other forums! I'm sure you can find one,, it'll just cost ya,,,!

I have an extra Weigand for a GP that I'd sell if you're interested.

Well, apparently since I'm a new member here, I'm unable to reply to your PM. However, the base that I had sold on another forum last Sunday...Sorry!
