    not that i see, but if you can get a full weaver, you can use a 20moa ring

    Would it work to take any 20 Moa pic. rail and bed it with JBweld to fit the barrel then drill new mount holes in the rail to match the barrel holes? I'm am skilled enough to do that work. I just want to hear if you gunsmith guys think that would hold zero and be effective for maximizing my dialing range.

    u would need one to match the barrel contour and that was flat on the bottom front to back, then, yes it "could" be done

    this is 90$

    I'd like to be able to dial to 500 yards. The gun shoots about 2.5" at 200 yards. Maybe 2". It's accurate enough to hit a deer at 450-500. I'd like to be able to dial it. The scope is a bushnell elite tactical 3200 10x mil/mil. I think it has 80 Moa travel. So 40 to dial up if its zeroed at center. Midways site is down when I tried the link. Ill try it later again.

    do u have enough adjustment now to do it?

    20moa will add 5.8 mil to it..

    you could also, just shim the existing mount
