Our Sidemounts and Topmounts have been the choice of serious sport hunters for over 70 years.

Griffin & Howe SIDEMOUNT Installation Instructions

Installation should be done only by a competent gunsmith.


#29 drill (#298)
#21 drill
#10 drill
#0 tapered reamer
9/32" counterbore

Remove barrel and action from stock. Mount scope into rings, and assemble sidemount together. Center base to loading port and clamp to action. Adjust to height desired and boresight. Top of base should be parallel to base of action and trued to perpendicular. Adjust scope so that rear on eyepiece is over the tang. Be sure to allow enough vertical clearance for the bolt to operate and clear the eye piece of the scope. Mark the front and rear of the base at the tangent point of the radius on the action.

Remove base and mill a radius in it to match the contour of the action. Clamp scope and mount to the action in desired position, aligning for parallelism, perpendicularity, clearance and location as above; then reboresight. In the set clamped position, drill 2 holes for #0 tapered pins with a #298 drill through base and action (see drawing for location) and ream holes with #0 tapered reamer and insert pins.

Drill 3 holes with #21 drill through base and action (see drawing). Remove base and tap the 3 holes in action with a 10-32 tap.

Enlarge screw holes in base with #10 drill; then counterbore the holes so screw heads will seat flush when assembled. Trim any excess material from the bottom of the base, remove all burrs from base and action. Assemble base to action, fitting 2 pins and tightening 3 screws securely. Grind off any ends of screws and pins that protrude inside or outside of the action. Polish and reblue as necessary
