Today I picked up a PU repro, but it is missing the ball joint on the scope base.

Anyone have an extra or know where I can get one?


Thanks!

The ball on some of the aluminum bases is steel. Find someone who has replaced the aluminum base with a steel one and just use the ball.

I would try to make one myself. It does not seem like a complicated project. Just take a bolt that would fit a hole in the base, put it in the drill and file it to the shape you need.
10 minutes - top.

Hmm... I'll head over to Lowes and see what I can find. How is the piece secured in there? The hole doesn't appear to be threaded.

Had an old aluminum mount in the parts bin. Didn't see the last post in getting it out of the mount and put a couple of scratches it it. If you can't come up with anything you are welcome to this one. PM me with your add and I'll send it your way. I checked it with a magnet and it is steel.

Regards
