I recently purchased a new a T/C Encore Prohunter Endeavor (Long name). I decided I wanted a see-thru scope mount for my Leupold 2-7X33. Leupold 1-piece Rifleman Base 56518 for Thompson Center Encore/Omega actually does not fit the Encore. The base holes are spaced properly but not in the correct spot. The base holes and screw holes do not align. This may be because the overal length of the base is too long, runs into rear fiberoptic sight if trying to align, or simply in the wrong spot. Can anyone offer any insight or answers? Leupold could not

I've read about barrels coming from T/C with the holes drilled in the wrong place (where 3 of the 4 holes were in the correct spot). It was on the impossible to navigate http://www.bellmtcs.com website.

Do 3 of the 4 holes align? Maybe have the extra hole drilled and tapped by a gunsmith?

  WELCOME to OT,Corey.
 
  I found a post stating that the Weaver #48530(410/#48513 base) mounting system fits the Endeavor.  That set up and your Leupold #56518 both are listed as being for the same Encore/Omega application.  Do you think it would it fit w/o the optic sight on(just to try)?  Is there any way your base is not actually a #56518?  Wrong base in the right package?  Got to start somewheres.
