Scope on Woodsman?

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Has anyone tried to fit a scope or red-dot on a Colt Woodsman MT withiut drilling the barrel? How?

Bud there used to be some grip adapters for those kind of guns that came up around the slide and allowed the use of a scope that sat above the slide and still allowed you to manipulate the slide and cartridges to eject.

Don't see any of those advertised anymore, but did install a few back in the 70's. Other than that I'd simply suggest getting one of the modern 22 semi's such as a Ruger that's already drilled and tapped and not devalue one of those beautiful old Colts by drilling and tapping it.

Thanks for the input, Bob. I use an Aimtech grip mount on my 1911 which works fine, but I've never seen anything for the Woodsman, new or used. It's not a collector's item but I still don't care to bore holes in it.

I did once sketch up a dural mount that would clamp on the barrel, to which a Weaver-style base could be screwed. But not having a milling machine put an end to my dreaming.

I have a colt woodsman MT 3rd series and also looking to mount a red dot with no drilling.
My friend has access to machine shop at work. Would like to help.
