Stith Mount

Stith Mount - A brand of scope mount from San Antonio, Texas, noted for utilizing a rifle's existing slots and holes; requiring no new holes to be drilled or tapped. Popular during the earlier days of effective telescopic sights when rifles were not normally factory drilled and tapped, both to save gunsmithing work and to avoid alterations to futurly-collectible rifles. The front mount normally consisted of a sleeve around the forward portion of the scope tube connected to a dovetail inserted into the rifle's front sight slot, and a rear mount that screwed into the factory pre-drilled receiver sight mounting holes.
