United States Patent SCOPE MOUNT Adriano E. Conte, Kansas City, Mo. Application December 8, 1953, Serial No. 396,951
2 Claims. (Cl. 33-50) This invention relates to a scope mount and more particularly to apparatus for mounting a telescoping gun sight to the breech or receiver of a gun.
In mountings for telescoping gun sights heretofore in use, it has been practically impossible to provide a rigid mounting of the scope on the breech of the gun due to variations in materials and the possibility of dirt and other foreign matter entering the various parts of the apparatus and preventing accurate mounting of the telescoping sight on the gun, and also a mount which will not be affected by temperature changes.
It is the principal object of the present invention to provide a mounting for a telescoping gun sight wherein the base or body member of the mount has a socket member and the scope mounting portion has a lug or projection depending therefrom engaging in said socket of the base or body member and may be held rigidly thereto by screws or the like for rigidly mounting the scope mounting mechanism to the base or body member of the apparatus.
Other objects of the present invention are to provide a simple mounting for securing the telescoping gun sight to the breech mechanism of a gun wherein the body member may be secured to the breech of the gun in a simple manner and the mounting mechanism for the scope secured thereto in a simple and easy manner; to provide an eflective rigid mounting for the scope; to provide means for securing the telescoping gun sight to the mounting apparatus; to provide a base for mounting of the gun sight having a groove longitudinally thereof; to provide a sight for the gun when the mounting proper is removed; to provide a mounting in which the main mounting apparatus may be removed and the base remains on the receiver of the gun without obstruction of the sights on the barrel of the gun; and to provide a device of this character simple and economical to manufacture.
In accomplishing these and other objects of the present invention, I have provided improved details of structure the preferred forms of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein:
Fig. 1 is a perspective fragmentary view of a gun showing my scope mount with the telescoping gun sight secured therein.
Fig. 2 is a plan view of my invention.
Fig. 3 is a side view thereof partly in cross section to illustrate the mounting of the body member to the breech of the gun.
Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the invention shown in disassembled relation.
Fig. 5 is a cross-sectional view taken on a line 5-5, Fig. 3.
Referring more in detail to the drawings:
1 designates a scope mount embodying the features of my invention mounted on the breech or receiver 2 of a gun 3 for mounting a telescoping gun sight 4.
My device consists of an elongated base or body member 5 having an enlarged portion 6 at substantially the center thereof. The enlarged portion extends laterally outwardly from the sides 7 of the base 5. The bottom 8 of the base or body member 5 is offset as indicated at 9 and 10 spaced from the respective ends 11 and 12 of the base providing a recess portion 13. The bottom of the end portions of the base 5 are concaved as illustrated in Fig. 5 to engage the convex portion of the receiver of the gun. The enlarged portion 6 of the body 5 has a substantially rectangular-shaped opening 14 extending therethrough for a purpose later described.
A groove 15 extends longitudinally of the top face 16 of the base 5 and a plurality of openings 17 extend therethrough adapted to receive Allen screws or the like 18 for engaging in threaded bores (not shown) in the receiver 2 of the gun 3 to securely mount the base 5 thereon.
19 designates a scope adapter comprising an elongated body member 20 having a substantially plane lower surface 21 adapted to engage on the plane surface 22 of the base 5, the body member 20 having an upper substantially semicircular contour as indicated at 23, Fig. 5. Secured to each end of the body member 20 by swedging or the like are mounting means 24 and 25 for the telescoping gun sight 4. Each mounting means consists of semicircular members 26 and 27 having cars 28 and 29 and 30 and 31 respectively. The ears 28 and 29 have openings 32 and the ears 30 and 31 have threaded openings 33 for receiving Allen screws 34 for securing the semicircular member 26 to the semicircular member 27 for holding the telescoping gun sight on the scope adapter. The semicircular portion of the member 27 aligns with the semicircular portion 23 of the body member 20 of the scope adapter 19 to fit the contour of the telescoping gun sight.
A lug or projection 35 depends from the plane surface 21 of the bottom of the scope adapter 19 and is of a size to fit snugly in the opening 14 in the base of the scope mount. The lug 35 has spaced transverse openings 36 therethrough and the sides 37 and 38 of the enlarged portion 6 of the base 5 has spaced openings 39 and 40 and 41 and 42, respectively, aligning with the opening 36 in the lug 35. The openings 41 and 42 are threaded to receive the threaded ends 43 and 44 of the shank of screws 45 and 46 adapted to extend through the openings 39 and 40 and of the side 37 of the enlarged portion 6 of the base, through the opening 36 in the lug 35 and engage in the threaded openings 41 and 42 of the side 38 of the enlarged portion 6 of the base 5. The screws 45 and 46 have heads 47 and 48.
The underfaces of the ends 11 and 12 of the base 5 are curved as indicated at 49 and 50 (Fig. 5) to fit the rounded portion of the receiver 2. The recessed portion 13 of the base 5 provides space for ejection of cartridges (not shown) from the gun.
In assembling a device constructed as described the breech of the gun must be tapped and the bores (not shown) threaded and the base 5 mounted securely thereto by the Allen screws 18. The scope adapter 19 is then secured to the base 5 by placing the depending lug 35 in the opening 14 and inserting the screws 45 and 46 through the openings 39 and 40, 36 and 41 and 42, respectively, for tightening the scope adapter securely to the base 5. The telescoping gun sight 4 is then placed in the semicircular portion 23 of the scope adapter after removal of the semicircular members 26 on each end of the scope adapter and then by placing the semicircular members over the telescoping gun sight as shown in Fig. l the sight is secured in the mount by insertion and tightening of the Allen screws 34.
It will be obvious from the foregoing that I have provided an improved scope mount for telescoping gun sights which may be quickly and easily assembled and which its upper edge provided with openings vertically through 10 the base, means engaging in said openings securing said base to the receiver, said base having an enlarged portion transversely of and at substantially the longitudinal center thereof and having spaced sides defining a rectangular shaped opening in said base, ascopefladapter havipg ap w elongated body poition, the upper face'of which is curved to conform to the shape of the telescopic sight, means on the ends of said body of the scope adapter for engaging the telescopic sight and holding the same securely therein, said means including upper and lower mating seini- 0 circular members embracing said telescopic sight having ears provided with threaded openings and screws for securing said mating members together, a lug conforming to the shape of the opening in said base depending from substantially the center of the body of the scope adapter 5 and engageable in said opening in the base, said lug having spaced transverse Openings therethrough, the spaced sides of the enlarged portion of the base having spaced transverse openings therethrough, two of said openings in the base being threaded, and screws having 30 shanks extending through the openings in said other side of the enlarged portion and through said depending lug on the adapter, the ends of said screws being threaded and engaging the threaded openings in the other side of the enlarged portion of the base for holding the scope adapter 35 securely on said base.
