Description

    I. FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates generally to firearms. In particular, the present invention relates to firearm sight mounts and systems.
  • II. Background of the Invention
  • As understood by those of skill in the art, rifle scopes are an essential element in any shooting system. Most firearms, especially rifles, are now manufactured with mechanisms for mounting a scope. Many older rifles, although including a rear sight mount, were not manufactured to accommodate the mounting of a scope. Although these older rifles remain perfectly functional, their use is limited by their inability to accommodate the mounting and use of a scope.
  • Mounting a scope on these older rifles can be challenging, especially when these older rifles may have special value or be antiques. For example, one conventional approach to mounting a scope on a rifle not equipped with a scope mount includes drilling a hole in, and tapping the barrel of the rifle. This approach, even if successful, can ultimately damage the rifle and decrease its value.
  • III. Summary of the Invention
  • Given the aforementioned deficiencies, a need exists for improved methods and systems of mounting scopes to rifles manufactured without a scope mounting system, without the need for drilling or tapping of the rifle. More particularly, a need exists for methods and systems that facilitate mounting a scope using the original factory sight.
  • Under certain circumstances, an embodiment of the present invention includes a system for mounting a scope to a gun barrel, the barrel including a slot for mounting a factory sight. The system includes a mounting member configured for attachment to the barrel, the mounting member including one or More openings for placement of a bolt therethrough. The bolt is configured to secure attachment of the mounting member to the barrel. The bolt includes a head portion and a fastening portion, the head portion having a shape being configured for coupling to the slot of the barrel.
  • Embodiments of the present invention include a scope mounting system that utilizes rear sight mount, that exists on the barrel of most rifles, as an anchor point. The scope mounting system is constructed to align itself with the barrel regardless of whether the barrel is round, hexagonal, or some other shape. By way of example, this system can use a mechanism such as a wood dowel pin or a brass punch.
  • A user can tap the rear sight in a sideways manner for removal. For use, the bolt can be slid into the original factory slot provided, for mounting of the sight, on the barrel. For example, the user can set the mount over the bolt in the barrel. A fastening nut can be placed thereon, and tightened, to secure the mounting system. At this stage, scope rings can be affixed to the mount, and the scope placed in rings per manufacturers specifications.
  • Further features and advantages, as well as the structure and operation of various embodiments, are described in detail below with reference to the accompanying drawings. It is noted that the invention is not limited to the specific embodiments described herein. Such embodiments are presented herein for illustrative purposes only.
