Hello,
 
With all the after market stuff they make for the 10/22 you'd think they'd be a solution. I've looked for at least two weeks now and I can't find one.
 
Here's the story:
 
I've got an 8" compact scope I want to mount on a 10/22 BUT the scope is so short, it makes  the eye relief so long the scope is unuseable.
 
The mount (Weaver base #48201) itself is fine but it's too short. I'm going to need something that hangs over the rear of the receiver or something to bring the eyepiece closer to my eye.
 
Or maybe there is just no solution to this other than to buy a longer scope which I can ill afford at this point.
 
Thanks.

Cantilevering a scope off the back of a 10-22 doesn't sound like a stable mounting platform. You may be throwing money in the wrong direction. The Weaver mount will not extend behind the receiver. What scope and rings do you have? What is the eye relief on the scope? These may help find a solution to the problem.

Agreed, what type of barrel...perhaps a VQ cantilever barrel mount
