"There was a period scope mount that attached to the receiver sight screw holes and either the front receiver ring holes or to a base in the rear sight dovetail. A Stith Instal It Yourself mount, I believe."

Bingo! I couldn't remember Stith. I was sitting here going S.... S.... S... damn it, I know the name!

Yes, Stith made mounts that used the side holes.

They worked, but they weren't the most stable.

On the plus side, you won't pay a lot for one of these mounts. I've seen them go for $40 and $50, and they seem to be relatively common.

The the minus side, they have not been made for years, and you'll have to have patience in finding one.

Check E-Bay, Gunbroker, and Auction Arms.
