Big Boy 44 scope mount.

Postby Blklasy » Wed Sep 19, 2018 7:08 pm

Hi, The scope mount from Henry looks pretty high. Trying to keep the scope low. Is there another choice for the Big Boy H006?

first welcome to our forum, delighted to have you join us .... we use the Henry BB-RSM (link below) mount .... we didn't want to remove the OEM buckhorn and its height is perfect for us .... please take a look at our How Many ? thread (second link below) and add yours to our community's total

Thanks for the info. How many is done. My scope is a 30mm 1-4x24 so I don't have to worry about the objective bell. That's why I'm looking for lower mount options. Haven't seen anything other than Henrys offering. Was just fishing.

I went searching. I found several from other suppliers, but they all looked like copies of the two on Henry's website. These are thick because of the arch in the mount above the eject port. Is the arch there to allow unobstructed case ejection? I don't know. Anyway, if you are up for tinkering, you might consider buying one of the inexpensive sorta universal mounts that have multiple holes in them in hopes that the hole options align with those on the H006 receiver. If they don't, then you could try drilling your own holes in the inexpensive mount. Another possible option, a skinner 2-piece mount, again if the hole spacing matches the receiver. I think you can email andy@skinnersights.com and ask for the hole spacing. Just a couple thoughts.
