Trying to remove an old Griffin & Howe side-mount from a Marlin 336-A rifle. Any hints on how this is done ??? I can't find any screws, slide rails etc. !!! Is it silver soldered ??? HELP !!!!!!! HD1

If you remove the bolt, and cannot see any screw heads holding it on from the inside, it was most likely hard-soldered/"sweated" on.

HEAT will allow removal.......... AND receiver refinishing. :(

I was afraid of that Rangr44 !!! I guess I'll just leave it on there for now. I wonder if I could find scope rings in a larger diameter for that mount. It currently has a 7/8" Lyman Alaskan 2 3/4X scope on it. Small diameter scopes just don't let in enough light to suit me. HD1

Keep your cool, AND the base - just sell the scope/ring/bracket combo, and let a buyer buy another base - which they'd most likely have to do anyway, unless they also have a Marlin.

The new 1" ring/bracket will fit the base that's on your rifle.
