Great advice everyone!! Thanks!! I'll keep this info handy!! With regard to the screws on the top of the Receiver, that I have to take out for placement of the Weaver Base..........are they typically a slotted head screw (I didn't happen to notice, on the gun I'm picking up Sunday).
Given the fact that it's not a "new" gun, how hard will these screws be to remove?
I wonder how the new screws that come with the Weaver Base Plate are kept from being too deep in the Receiver, interfering with bullet transfer?
