I don’t know where I should be posting this, so I’m putting copies everywhere I can think of, hoping for a source of expertise.

I recently bought a Globco 555 in .303 British. This is an autoloading rifle, which is a Russian Tokarev that was sporterized and re-chambered to .303 for the Canadian market in the 1960’s.

I originally bought this rifle for interest’s sake, but, I like the feel of it, and I've always enjoyed hunting with an autoloader. I’m hoping that if the action proves reliable, and it is a reasonable shooter, that I might carry it deer hunting this fall.

There are 2 grooves on opposite sides at the back of the receiver, where it appears that something was meant to slide onto the rifle. I’m wondering if this could possibly be for a scope mount, or if it might be possible to have a scope mount made that clamps onto the rifle at these points? Does anyone know of any original or aftermarket scope mounts for the Tokarev? I would only mount a red dot or Holosight on this rifle, so a mount wouldn’t have to be very high or be able to support some heavy high-magnification scope.

Also, does anyone know of a source of clips that would work in a Tokarev? I always like a spare. I would probably have to have one modified for it to be legal in Canada (5 shot rule).

For a scope mount "B Square" makes the mount that clamps in the orginal scope rails. The magazines can be had from "Numrich Gun Parts Corp" their on the internet hit start on their webpage go down the list till you see Torkarev I think there around $55 for a replacement mag a lot cheaper than an orginal mag $125.
