Scoping a Ruger Old Army? Grips?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Just received my stainless ROA and would like to use it for deer hunting in MD. What base do I need to scope this thing? I'd like a base that requires no drill and tap. Also, I want Hogue rubber grips for it, but the Hogue site does not list any for the OA. Are Blackhawk grips a drop-in replacement, since the grip frame is Blackhawk (I think). Thanks for replies!

It looks like mounts that would fit a Blackhawk would fit. I personally have not had very good luck with no drill mounts. Brownells has a couple that would fit. They sell the EGW Revolver Scope mount # 296-302-101 in silver. It requires drilling and tapping two holes. Mounts low and uses the existing sight base for a recoil lug. It's $30.00. the other one they sell for the Blackhawk is #957-124-101 and again requires drilling and tapping.

I ran a small gunsmith shop for a while and the most product failures I had was with no drill revolver scope bases.

If you do put bases on you might consider one of the Dot scopes. I've used both for a lot of years and found as my eyes get older the dot sight is easier to use. I have an aimpoint 5000 with the one minute dot and it is much quicker to aquire the target than with a scope.
