Mounted on Chiappas. Some fitting required as side holes had to be enlarged to fit #10 screws, some of webbing relieved for clearance. After that alignment was great.

Not sure

The Sharps side mount kit is not a one size fits all. I want to mount the 6X short scope on my Pedersoli 1874 Sharps, Q Downunder. The front mount does not fit flat on the barrel but rides on the ridges of the octagon. The rear side mount when mounted does no fit to the center of the barrel. The ring mount is off to the left. Both of these problems can be corrected with some machining. The forward screw hole on the side mount is to thick and will have to be thinned from its current 0.313. Inch to about 0.250 inches. The rear screw hole area will no doubt require some work too. And the screws may have to be shortened accordingly. I rearmed the reviews on this produce before purchasing it and for some people everything worked fine. I think it is just a matter of the dimensions of different rifle makes and models. I also think that after the work on the mounts the scope and mounts will look good on my rifle.

Be prepared to modify rear mount and screws

This is not a bad review it's simply a heads up! You will need to mill/file off a moderate amount of metal on the rear mount contact points (where it touches the side of your receiver) and the center strap between the two contact points in order to get it centered on the bore line with the front mount. After removing this metal you will then need to shorten the supplied mount screws as they will be too long. Anybody with basic machinist skills (or that can use a dremmel or file!) will be able to perform these modifications. If you don't and simply mount it on your sharps (including the pedersoli 1874 Target that I have) out of the bag, the posi cut rear mount will be too far offset to the left of bore centerline. This will use up all of your windage clicks to parallel the scope on top of the barrel to bore centerline when you mount your scope. With a little bit of sweat and a lot of filing you can make this mount work and have it centered on the bore line. But it is NOT a drop in and use mount for sure. Good quality metal. You will also have to reblue the mount obviously after your modifications. No problems at all just a fair amount of work to center it on the bore line.
