    B-square makes a saddle mount that mounts on the receiver.

      Try a b-square mount or have it drilled and tapped by a gunsmith.

        You are going to have to buy one of the scope rest (don't quite know what there are called for sure) and mount it yourself.

            A b-square mount could work but I would take it to a gun-smith and see if you can have it drilled and tapped for a scope.

              I have the B-Square saddle mount scope on my Mossberg 500 for turkey season and for deer slugs. And here's what I've found:

              In addition to having optics, the advantage of the saddle mount is being able to remove it without much trouble for ducks and skeet in between.

              The disadvantages are (1) having to re-zero the scope twice a year and (2) needing a neoprene raised comb to see through the scope because it sits up so high.

              I would suggest that if you have a *dedicated* scoped shotgun, get it drilled and tapped. If you are a one-shotgun hunter like I am (for now ), get the saddle mount.

                      Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
