This may be an option for you if your tru glo is for a pic rail

No idea if anyone makes a saddle mount for the weatherby but that's also an easy option.

All saddle mounts I found were for other guns. I know that something would probably work but....I'm gonna call that company and see if this is an option for me.  Thanks!

I put a red dot on my son's shotgun.
Cheapo 12guage from Walmart.
It was drilled and tapped,but no rail or scope base would line up.
Only one company I found even sold one,his birthday is in March.
I was on a time crunch to make something work
I ended up drilling holes in a different rail. His rail is only held on with 3 screws instead of four.
Buying scope bases for shotguns ,seems more difficult then it should be.
I rather piss in the wind,then have piss down my back.

:yeah:
I've used a Beretta 391 with a shim area mount, it was very good. This Burris system looks good and for about $60, no drilling required.

I wonder if that system would work on the CZ Drake 410. With 410s being so much smaller of barrels. And the CZ drake not being tapped. I may have to look into it more. Been thinking about a red dot for turkey hunting.

Since it mounts on the rib. If adaptors slide between the barrel and rib you should be OK.

Thatís what I was thinking. It should slide in no problem. I think the only concern I have is how narrow the rib is.

I called Burris and according to the customer rep they don't have a mount that will work with the Weatherby. I ordered 2 different sights. The 1st one is the Hi-Viz Tom Buster and the 2nd is the Dead Ringer beard buster. They both mount to the rib. I'll see which one I like the best and use it. They were only 20 bucks each so no huge money spent. Next up will be finding a good patterning choke.

I did a 20g nova last year. Mounted a bushnell rx using a Sumtoy base. The RX is the same footprint as Leupold Delta point. Local gun shop tapped it for $80. Patterned Federal, Browning and Herters TSS. Herters was as good as Federal for $15 less.

the Elements dont come tapped for a red dot mount on receiver.. this will have to be a mod you make.

Going to have to start searching for a Smith to do that work.

If you are looking for a gunsmith in the Castle Rock area, try 3 Peaks Firearms.  He's good.
