Re: Budget setup
You remove the bases that are currently on your gun before installing the 1-piece picatinny base. It mounts to the top of the reciever with 4 screws.
Dovetail is the style of base that's on it, not the reciever itself. You should 't have to take the gun to a gunsmith to have the rail put on, it takes 10 mins to remove the old stuff and install the new. Takes you about 2 more to boresight it.
