Scoping the Henry – Part 2

I wanted to maintain the break down feature of the US Survival rifle; however, I wanted to scope it. The plan was to find a scope short enough to stow away in a stock pouch and have the rings easy to loosen/tighten with thumb screws. With trial and error, I found rings that worked with my BSA scope. I tried two Weaver tip-off rings – one was too high, the other too low. I finally struck some luck with the Burris Custom Steel Rings from www.midwayusa.com.

The scope clears the rear peep sight by 2mm – just perfect. I only mounted the tube, so I have yet to shoot it. I’m still working on that pouch modification. It’s all in the works.

    Links have aged out, but the part you used was a Burris 420076 (1″ tube mount, satin finish black, deluxe ring pair for 3/8″ Weaver mount on rimfire rifles).

    MidwayUSA’s current URL for it is: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/629868/burris-1-deluxe-rings-22-rimfire-steel-matte-high

    I have no affiliation with mfg’r or retailer, just interested in a known-working Henry AR-7 scope mount solution.
