Wichita MK40 scope bases
Does anyone know what scope bases would fit a Wichita MK40 pistol?
May have to find a base with the same contour and possibly drill extra hole but would like to find one that fits out of the box.

I have had to make them for customers. I don’t think anything out there fits.

You might be inquire at the IHMSA board.

For some reason I thought they were the same as a model7 Remington

G whiz, it's a Contender or a G2, never was a G One!

If I remember correctly I put a savage long action on my mk 40 I will have to do some digging but I should be able to get the part number for it to ya in a day or two. I can put a pic in too.

It is a weaver base for the savage rifle post 2003 long action. It is a one piece base. number 413t48329. The rear screw holes line up but not the front. I had a gunsmith do the front. ejection of brass not a problem.
I understand that the weaver #85 bases will also work for the MK 40. It is a small base and you will need two but the holes match up so no drill or taping needed. these are part number 48085

Thanks for the info. I was sure there had to be a base or bases that could be used on my MK40.

Mine has 8-40 screws, not sure if that's normal or if they where opened up on mine. I use 2 Remington 700 front bases ( 1 standard, 1 extended front) with Burris signature rings.. The hole pattern on the Wichita is same front and rear which matches the rem 700 front spacing.
