Hi and thanks in advance for any help!
 
I used to do some target shooting but got away from it over the years. Now I am interested in playing around again but my 20/20 sight went away years ago!
 
Open sights are a real struggle.
 
I have several projects in mind but would like to start by putting a scope on my MKII Target SS.
 
I have a Leupold M8 2X ER that I bought years ago and never got out of the box. It is black and my MKII is SS but I would still like to give it a try just to see if I like the concept.
 
I get dizzy when I start looking at bases and rings! All I want to do is get it mounted well enough to see if I like it.
 
I thought about Crimson Trace but would like to use the scope I already have for now and maybe step up later or on other guns.
 
Can someone just tell me which base and rings to buy!
 
Thanks again

Is the upper machined for rings? Or do you need to drill and tap?
 
Just remember that the only thing you have to focus on is the front sight ;)  I'd suggest one of the red dots instead of a scope... much faster.

It is just a basic MKII Target. Not drilled and tapped.
 
Is there a base that will mount where the factory rear sight is?
 
I think I figured out I need a ring height of .270? Does that sound right with the M8 2X scope?
 
If I went with a Red Dot, I would have the same questions. Which one and how to mount? And maybe where to buy.
 
I have been looking at the Midway site but I get dizzy.
 
Thanks

I have a base made by b-square on one of mine.  It attatches by the rear sight dovetail and the front sight screw.  It uses any weaver style rings.
