Re: weaver base on a super blackhawk
Then I would strongly encourage you to D/T it and mount it up right. The .44 mag will shoot a pin on loose in short order and possibly ruin the scope. Might get away with it on a .357 in the SBH because they are heavy, but a .44 mag will need to be D/T for sure.
I speak from experience. I thought I could get away with a clamp on mount for my .480 ruger. destroyed a scope and 2 red dot sights, not to mention marred the hell out of the top of my revolver from the base walking around, before i got wise and did it right.
You buy the mount and the hardware and take it to a good smith. Most smiths charge around 15 - 20 bucks a hole to D/T. And trust me its money well spent.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
