GLUE the scope bases?

Somewhere, I think on this forum but can't find it, I saw a reference to gluing the scope bases to a .22 rifle when the rifle wasn't drilled. Made me curious, but now I can't find the article.

What bases? Do you try to find something that fits the rifle, or simply rely on the glue/bedding compound/JB Weld or whatever to fit the gap in the contour?

What is "sticky" enough to hold? I'd hate to do this and have the bases fall off when the glue dried.

I've got this Model 34...

Thanks,
Earl

Well I finally found the answer over on Rimfire Central. Fellow uses JB Weld to glue Weaver 43 bases to Rem 33 and 34 actions.
