Goosic, is that a "no drill and tap" scope mount?
I keep thinking about fitting a scope to one of my No8 .22's. I think it would make a cool little Envoy replica. But I want a suitable mount that won't need any drilling.
The Fulton's one is probably best; but a bit expensive for a .22. What other makes are there?

I really like the contrast in the wood colours.

No, it is not. It requires one hole drilled into the top of the receiver for installation of the Parker Hale scope base. The rear Parker Hale BA21 scope base is a drop in replacement for the regular peep sights.  I've seen these on L42A1 rifles.

The scope mounts were developed by PH for the Police Rifle, the "Enforcer"

I thought the front mount was 2-holes to avoid swivelling.

There have been a number of examples were 'less than skilled' gunsmiths have fitted these but have drilled too deeply and either cut into the chamber, or left it so thin that it has blown the screw out on firing.

They do a neat job but are the devils spawn to fit.

The military refused to use them so I doubt they have ever been used on the L42A1 unless it is a 'civilian clone', but the Enforcer looks very similar to the L42A1

The official L42A1 used the same mounts and rings as the No4T

My Enforcer, No4T and L42A1

It was just one hole on my scope base. Without the barrel, I drilled completely through to ensure deep threads. I tinned  the threads on the screw as well.

Thanks for the info. I'll maybe look at the Fultons mount.

S&K no drill,no tap mounts are still available on the interwebs as is the Addley Precision Scope Mount. 
After looking through my parts bin, I located a short S&K scooe mount for the No4/5 rifles. You want to PM me and figure out a way to get this to you?

PM sent Goosic. 
That mount looks good for the No8 (No4/5 type receiver). It looks short enough to allow easy loading.

It should be fine, it stops about 1 1/4" short of the receiver ring.
Nice mount I use one on my No5! Mine is the slightly lower "proprietary rings", There's JUST enough clearance with the turret saddle to slip a dollar bill folded in half through!his uses Weaver rings. It shouldn't be a problem though just use "extra Low" rings.

Thanks for that photo Shamu. It shows that there's good space for loading the .22 rounds on the platform.
I'll probably get another Tasco scope; I have a Tasco Pronghorn on my CZ.22 and I find it's really good value for money. 
Although I'll make sure I get one suitable for the .303 as well; just in case I want try it on the larger calibre one day. I think the No8 will make a nice little Envoy clone.

PM received and replied Goosic, thanks, Zed.
