I JUST KNOW THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE SITE TO ASK ABOUT SCOPING OCTAGON CONTENDER BARRELS. I RECENTLY ACQUIRED 2 10 INCH OCTAGON CONTENDER BARRELS, 1 IN 22 JET AND ONE IN 221 FIREBALL, AND AM LOOKING AT A 222 OCTAGON ALSO. ALL FOR EASY AND FUN SHOOTING AT THEM LITTLE THINGS THAT OFTEN NEED ELIMINATION. THE JET HAD 4 MOUNT HOLES BUT THE FIREBALL ONLY HAD 3. THE WEAVER MOUNT (92A I BELIEVE) FITS ON BOTH BARRELS BUT WILL IT HOLD UP? ARE 3 MOUNT HOLES ENUFF FOR THE FIREBALL? ARE THERE ISSUES I NEED TO LOOK FOR, e.g. THE "FULCRUM EFFECT"? ARE THERE BETTER MOUNTS/OPTIONS? I AM NOT IN A TOO BIG OF A HURRY SO DO NOT MIND AN OPTION THAT REQUIRES SOME GUNSMITHING, e.g. MORE HOLES, BIGGER HOLES/STRONGER SCREWS, ACRA GLASS, etc. A BUDDY HAS MOUNTED T'SOB's ON FA REVOLVERS FOR ME WHERE HE ACRA GLASSES THE SCREWS AND THE MOUNT AND THEY WORK FINE.
