Mounting  optics Empty Mounting optics

Post by Pat Nemes 2/27/2014, 8:36 am

I recently purchased a new Walther Colt Gold Cup .22 pistol which sizewise is a clone of the Colt 1911. I would like to attach a weaver type base to mount a optical sight. Going into the Weaver site they do not list any bases for the 1911. What  base would I use to mount to the top of the slide? I can do the drilling and tapping.

Thanks

a dot optic on a 22 slide unless its tiny and very light may not cycle, all the conversions have it mounted above the actual slide.

Since the recoil is low on a .22, maybe you could try an Aimtek right grip panel mount using only the two grip screws instead of the the four it's designed for.

All you do is replace right grip panel with scope mount.

I think these are around $50 from midway or cheaper than dirt.

be advised this is a long shot for working but likely better than tapping into the frame or slide right away only to find out it's not a good idea on your new .22.

I'm pretty sure a slide mount wont work on that pistol.  On the match grade .22 conversions only the bottom half of the slide actually moves.  That's the reason it's so easy to mount a scope to those.  The barrel and scope doesn't move to cycle the gun.

Another solution like the grip mount mentioned above is a frame mount.  That way the slide will continue to operate with the weight it was designed with.

Here's a picture of one option from Midway:
