The Accurate, Professional Way To Mount Scopes & Sights
The Foster Scope Mounting Jig fills the exacting requirements of
the most particular gunsmith. Will handle virtually all bolt action,
lever action and pump guns! You have only to spoil one good gun
with a faulty job and you've spent the price of the jig. We have
sold a great number of these to gunsmiths during the recent
years. The universal comment when we meet scope jig buyers
later is "I don't know how I ever did business without it. Would
rather almost do without my right arm than lose it now!"
Forster Universal Sight Mounting Fixture was designed to
fill the exacting requirements encountered in drilling and tapping
holes for the mounting of scope mounts, receiver sights, shotgun
beads, etc. The Fixture will handle virtually all bolt action, lever
action and pump action guns including the Savage 99, Remington
760, etc.; in fact, any single barrel gun as long as the barrel can
be laid into the "V" blocks of the Fixture. Tubular magazine guns
are done in the same manner by first removing the magazine
The Fixture will locate the holes to a standard,
predetermined spacing built into the over-arm, or to any other
spacing by sliding the over-arm in either direction. "Run out" of the
drill is eliminated as it is guided through a hardened and ground
drill bushing. Tapping is done through another bushing of the
correct tap size, and eliminates cocking of the tap which is a major
cause of tap breakage and sloppy holes. The sliding over-arm has
three holes with standard spacing of .500" and .860" between
centers into which the interchangeable drill and tap
guide-bushings fit. The over-arm is keyed and slides in a "T" slot.
It is always in true alignment with the exact center of the gun
The main body of the Fixture is cast aluminum.
The two "V" blocks are adjustable for height and made of
hardened steel accurately ground on the "V" as well as the shaft.
Accuracy in every detail has been the first consideration!
It is truly a precision fixture that will save its cost over and over
again while allowing you to do a really first class job on every gun
that comes into your shop.
