View Full Version : If anybody has this Info-Weaver bases

August 30, 2010, 01:46 AM
If anybody has an old Weaver catalog, I need the model numbers for the old tip-off bases for a Marlin 336. I have a new set of tip-off rings and bases for a BAR but would really like to use the rings on the Marlin.

Thanks in advance.

Weaver hasn't made tip-off s in many many years . However , if you should stumble onto a base , I have the rings for it ! I also have a few complete ones , but not for the marlin . The tip offs fell out of favor because the rings would come loose if you pivoted it very many times . However I have found that if you put the Blue Lok-Tite to the threds and screw them down to where they start to bind , then back up just a touch to free . They will stay put for a long time no matter how much you play with them ( still not a good idea ) . I like them and have them on my Rem. pump rifles !

I've had a set on a Winchester Model 70 which I bought in 1970. They still haven't loosed up and they still hold zero. I realize that they haven't been manufacture in some time but you can't get even a used set if you don't know the model numbers.

In 1967, I was sorta forced into the decision that, if I didn't want to shoot through the scope, I'd rather have the scope OFF the rifle ILO pivoted to the side.

This, because I had shot my then-new .444 with it's scope pivoted off to the left while I started zeroing the open sights.

At the 1st shot, the scope clipped the left side of my left eye/forehead, which was further forward than my shooting eye, gashing it & drawing blood.

So, please forgive me if I'm mistaken some 40-odd years later, but IIRC, the Weaver Pivot Base was a No. 163A.

I found two complete ones in my Weaver box ! When you need to know pivot mount model numbers , look up the top mount bases for that model gun and add a 1 to the front of the number and you have the pivot mount base number !
