Just picked up my son's first 22. (Marlin XT-22yr) Want to mount a red dot on it but can't seem to find a 1pc base. Any suggestions?

Thanks for any help.

Wouldn't you be covering up the ejection port where the cases come out?

roushstage2 has a great point. I did that on one of my 22s (one piece mount) and was forever digging spent cartridges out of the receiver, a real pain. How much room is there behind the ejection port on the receiver dovetail?

His is just a mini version of my XT-22R. There's enough room to fit a base, and then you have the cutout for the bolt handle. I'm using the dovetail on my XT-22, and it works just fine.

Clever. I like the engraving on it too!

Got the rail in yesterday and it works perfect. Solid fit. It slides over the dove tail and then screws into the receiver. Seems like overkill on a 22 but I like it. No problems with the ejection port now.

Thanks again

Post a pic, just curious to see a bolt gun with a red dot.
