I'm wanting to mount a low-power scope on a pretty nice side-by-side double-barreled shotgun (mainly for squirrel hunting).

I know many would ill advise putting a scope on a pretty nice double, but I want to explore the possibilities.

Anyone know a very experienced, competent gunsmith (greater Knoxville area preferred) who's mounted a lot of scopes on guns that weren't pre-drilled?

The side-by-side I'm wanting to do this on has a solid rib, and I see no reason this couldn't work.

Also have a very lightweight 20 ga. Winchester 101 I'd consider doing the same on if the vent rib could support it.
