SA RO Scope Mount

Here's a pic of a mount I made for the RO. This mount can be taken off and the irons replaced. No ugly visible screw holes when irons are on the pistol.

SA RO SCOPE MOUNT

Post by Mark Patterson on Thu Nov 12, 2015 8:45 am

Jon that looks cool but I've already been down this road and I couldn't keep the scope tubes tight in the scope body as it's just to much shock when it's end mounted and not supported on both ends.I don't know if the tubes could be red lock-tited with any success or not. I'm quite sure if after gluing that Ultradot probably would not warranty the scope anymore either. I even tried this with a frame mounted scope as well and here again I couldn't keep the tubes tight. Good Luck!!

I"ve been shooting cantilevered scopes since 89. I place a small amount of blue loctite on rear tube. No issues. Also have had repairs done by Ultradot with no problems. I have had to change rings before to get a good grip on the scope tube. Some rings are a bit oversized. Also the Aimpoint Micro works perfect with this mount.

I would love to try one of those on my 9mm RO. I just happen to have a HD Micro that would mount on it without worries also.

Mounts are $125. Comes with (2) 8-40 Torx head screws. Installed price is $150. Will machine to your length; can make it slighty longer than double rings or Aimpoint mount, etc. In other words I'll work with you. My turn around time will vary depending on work load.

I've often wondered why such a mount is not commercially available.  Or if that was my "million dollar idea"...
Mark's post indicates a possible reason, so I'll be interested in hearing how these fair in actual use.

Are these mounts compatible with other Springfields and 1911s or specifically the Range Officer only?

The RO uses a LPA machining pattern for the sight. I also make them for Bomar patterned cut. For bald slides (no rear sight cut) I also make a base. I can fab for any slide arrangement; would need slide for measurements.

Do you know what cut a Kimber would need? The Kimber Target Match has a slide that is almost a match for a Gold Cup but is different. I would never want to drill it but this mount might be perfect.

I'm not sure. I rarely work on or see a Kimber. If I had slide on hand I could machine mount to fit.

That would be doable. RO in front of Kimber.

I'll try and get Aimpoint photo. Yes Kimber looks identical except doesn't have the RO bevel.

I'm terrible about taking photos. I have pics of a base thats 80 percent finished for an Aimpoint. Has pic of Aimpoint base on it. I'll email to anyone interested in seeing it.

Just FYI for all following this thread, that is my pistol in the original post. Jon did a complete job for me on my RO. I want to let Jon know and all of you that the pistol is absolutely amazing. Barring .22s, this is the smoothest shooting pistol I have ever shot. I am new to the red dot sight, but am already seeing some small improvements and just need to practice a ton. Everything from the trigger, which is phenomenal, to the smooth feel of the recoil is just first rate. Thanks Jon and I hope to join you some time at the local match.

Cheers,

Joel

Is the mount aluminum or steel?

I make both steel and aluminum. Depends on application.
I just made an aluminum one a little to thin and it failed. So with aluminum it will sit slightly higher than a steel mount. I saw your other post for your Baer pistol. Does it have bomar cut? Also you already have mounting holes that can be used: assuming you're pulling off full length rib. The photo above is the thicker version.
