I have the old style Thompson Conter made in 1976. The barrel is drilled and tapped for scope mount. This barrel also has ventilated rib. At rear of barrel, the barrel angles down approximatly 1/4" and that is where the first scope mount hole is. The other scope mount hole is on the flat of the rib.
Does anyone have any idea where I could find a scope mount base to fit this barrel? I ordered a Weave base 92A but it does not work.
I will try to attach pictures.
Thanks for the help

I don't recall any scope mounts for the vent rib barrels.

What caliber is the barrel??

If it's one of the old .357 or .44 Hot-Shot barrels I didn't think they had a scope mount for them.

Also, it looks in the picture like the rib has a very pronounced upward bend in it between the first two supports??

Are you sure those are mounting holes and not the screws that secure the rib to the barrel?
