Question old Weaver mount

I have an old 30/30 with a Weaver scope and Weaver mount that you can flip the scope out of the way to use open sights. I know out dated, but that's what I have always used and am comfortable with. When it get's too dark to see through my scope I simply flip it out of the way and hunt with open sights for another 20 minutes or so. My cousin has been trying for a while to find this type mount with no success. I looked and am not sure Weaver still makes them. Does anyone know where we could find them?

Greetings Turtle, I'm sorry but I ran some quick searches here online and wasn't able to locate flip mounts anywhere,
What I would suggest is, have your cousin buy a nice set of See thru mounts... the see thru's would perform as well as the flip style..


Good Luck

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

no longer made

Bruce, got my reply back from Weaver. They said the pivot bases and rings have been discontinued for several years. Thanks again for your help.
