Mounting Dot on Model 10???

Post by knightimac on 9/30/2014, 9:53 am

Hi Folks

I picked up a old beat up model 10 smith that shoots well even at 50 yards.  I can hold black at 25 in timed and shoot low to mid 70's at 50 when I do my part with iron sights.

Is  there a good way to mount a dot on this gun?  I think it would be great for Harry Reeves if I go to Perry next year.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't know if this is a "good way" to mount a dot on a model 10, but it is the only mount I know of:

http://www.aimtech-mounts.com/Revolvers.htm

It puts the dot very high and I've never used one so don't know how sturdy it is.  It would be great if someone would make a good mount for the fixed sight Smith's.  Maybe a good business idea?  There are lots of good old revolvers around that could use that upgrade.

 Unfortunately, not quite that easy. Using that mount (and it's a good one) would require milling out the top of the fixed-sight Model 10 frame for the slot that S&W uses for their adjustable sights, as well as drilling/tapping the set of three holes.

Scope Mount For Model 10

Post by 38Super!! on 9/30/2014, 6:01 pm

Do regular web searches for a Weaver 307.  
The mount requires NO modifications to your gun.
They show up on Ebay occasionally.  Prices vary from 10 to 30 dollars.
Make sure that you get the whole kit with the base, rear screw and nut, and the front screw.  The rear screw and nut are critical.  Without them, the mount is worthless.
If you find one with all of the above parts but no rings, that is not a problem.  Just about any rings that fit a Weaver mount will work.

Thanks all for the input.

The blued aimtech mounts are not in stock anywhere including directly from aimtech.  Does anybody actually use these mounts for bullseye?

The 307 will not work on my gun as it does not have an adjustable sight hole to the secure the mount.

Gunsmiths out there, would you think drilling and tapping the top of bull barrel or top strap for a weaver rail might work?
