Check Out This Incredible Homemade Scope Mount

Sometimes, words simply fail to fully describe something, which is why they say a picture can be worth a thousand words.
I’ve been writing and editing for a long time, but I’m not sure I could fully describe this astounding homemade scope mount in TEN thousand words.
I mean, look at it. It’s clearly been conjured up using some odd bits of scrap steel. A couple hunks of angle iron welded to the side of the receiver, onto which a dovetailed piece of flat stock is similarly fused, and onto that, a scope mounted in extra-high scope rings using everyday hardware, of course.
Good luck maintaining a good cheek weld while peeping through that scope! And shame on ya if you bump it. I don’t think it would take much to bend or otherwise shift that setup.
I have no idea where this photo originated. It was posted to a hunting group with this caption:
Saw this somewhere, thought it was funny. The only way to treat a Ruger.
Make of that what you will.
