    I have an 8" barrel one in .357 mag (among other barrels)..... anywhere I can get a mount for this bad boy?

    Thinking of carrying it as my "CCW gun" while turkey hunting with shotgun this spring, to use on yotes/feral dogs. Either this one or the scope Contender 10" .218 Bee. Also, opinions on which of those two would be better for my purpose?

    Thanks.

    You will have to look for a scope mount at the gun auction sites. I have one for my DW's but don't plan on letting it go. I can't remember the manufacturer of it and can get that info this evening if you like, to help you with your search.
    For an all around, in the hills caliber, between your two choices, I would stick with the .357

    B-Square did have one that clamped to vent rib on the barrel shroud. They no longer mfg it.

    I have also seen DW owners take .22 (3/8" base) rings and clamp them on the vent rib of shroud.

    If you have a solid shroud you'll have to drill and tap.

    B-Square, thats the one I have, it clamps on the rib and has a small brass set screw on top that locks it down tight to the top of the rib, wile at the same time giving the scope base a bit off rough elevation adjustment.

    B-Screw..er Square made a clamp-on. The best clamp-on was made by Maynard Buehler. It clamped to the top strap and you could change barrels without changes the scope.

    Here's a photo of the B-Square on a 8"

    If you don't mind d&ting the barrel shourd Jack Weigand makes a great mount and rings. Here's his set up on a .357 super mag.

    Holden made an "Ironsighter" for Dan Wessons, it required drill and tap of the shroud though. The nice feature was, of course, to still use the iron sights. It does put the scope way above the bore.

    It's a simple matter to drill and tap the shroud for a base meant for a Marlin 336. The Holden mount can be duplicated by using Weaver See-Thru's for the same rifle.

    JW well discount the price of rings when bought with the mount, or did at one time. Great folks to deal with.
