Any scopes on auto loaders?

Rugers are easy to scope, but I suspect that even Sigs might have been scoped one way or another. Since I am a gizmo junky, I would love to know what has been done along this line of thought.

lots of scope mounts for auto loaders.
I have one but never got around to it.
Here is a random pic of a racegun that popped up when I did a search

Sometime around 1967-68(?), there was a short run fad of scoping 1911's.

The left grip panel was replaced by a grip that had an extension that went up and over the slide.

I don't know what they were doing for a scope.

If you dig around the old gun mags you should find some pictures. I think Numrich Arms sold the grips, but I wouldn't swear to it.

It would be cool to go OC with a scoped 1911... or... dare I say it... GLOCK. :D

I bought mine from Brownells about 4 years ago for $60. I don't think they are currently in their catalog.

I think Aim Tech and B-Square currently offer similar (right) grip replacement mounts.

I searched high and low for that NPC mount and could not find one. I found a similar mount, by NcStar I think, on some obscure webpage which I can't find the link for right now.

This kind (http://cgi.ebay.com/Weaver-Style-Dual-Rail-Tactical-Pistol-Scope-Mount-NEW_W0QQitemZ250157368704QQihZ015QQcategoryZ52511QQtcZphotoQQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting) might work if you have a rail
