Karl they are the same mount. I'm thinking I just have to hunt for a long eye relief compact scope to make things work??? The 88 seems to beg for a low profile compact scope which I have and just tonight put on the Rem 870 a Redfield 1.75X5X20. I would like a bit more obj like 33-36mm. Natchez still has their Omega scopes on sale and the 1.65X5X36 bdc 250 for $129.00. It has the 5" eye relief. I'm thinking maybe something like this would solve all my problems. 5x for the 88 would be plenty of scope for it's intended purpose.
