BL scope
[Return to Topics]

In 1964 I purchased a 742, caliber 30-06 also I put a B&L scope on it. The scope had the adjustment in the mounts and not the scope. It is a setup that I found very superior. The scope is sealed and never fogs. I zeroed it in and have never touched the zero since. It was really worth the extra money.
The problem is I can't find extra mounts to fit my muzzleloader. I guess it never sold well and it seems B&L does not make the setup anymore.
I'm just wondering if someone out there might have a set of mounts they might want to sell.

The rifle that I killed my first deer with in '61 was a 270 721 remington that had a B&L scope with those same mounts that was loaned to my grandfather. I later purchased it at his friends estate auction and paid a ransom for it. Only later did I discover the setup for the scope when a local gun collector wanted to pay me as much for the scope and mounts as I had paid for the rifle. The mounts state that it was made for the 721 remington and 70 winchester.I have never seen another mount as this and get a lot of fun taking the scope off the rifle and watching the reaction from other hunters. I have since heard that optics were scarce after WW 2 and quite expensive and and hunter could use the scope on different rifles and they would both stay in alignment. I remember my father sighted the gun for alignment in 1959, it was OK and has stayed the same for all these years. My son, nephew and I still like to take it out for old times sake. The gentleman that owned it was John Shank and we still refer to the gun as OLD JOHN. NO it is not for sale.

Don't know where you will find the mounts you are looking for, however if you can get a copy of Howell's "Modern Gunsmithing" he tells you how to make simular mounts. Good book for making all kinds of neat gun stuff, from mounts, sights, and cherries for cutting your own chambers and bullet molds.
