I'm right here. I sent a PM. Look for a flashing envelope near top center of the screen.

Nice low mount..how much drillin and tappin is required?
Looks like you may be using existing holes.
Looks like a fine piece of work..I'm sure more than one Savage guy has your mount.
Don't know how I missed it before !?

I have several 99's and 1899's with Lightfoot mounts including this 303 SRC. I think the mount may even help with accuracy since it makes a solid bridge between the barrel and receiver. When I was working up loads for this SRC I shot a 5 shot 7/8" group at 100 yards with 150 grain round nose bullets and I believe 27 grains of 3031. When I upped the load to 30 grains of 3031 it still shot two 1 1/8 to 1 1/4 inch groups. This is the load I used to kill the elk in the 3 favorite gun post.

Scroll up to the post that has a picture of the mount and click on Lightfoot's name and a window will open and you can send him a private message, Joe.

I just recently purchased a mount from Lightfoot. It wasn't cheap, but was very well made. After getting and installing it I wondered how he could make the mount so reasonably priced for what he had to put into it. If I ever get another 99 Lightfoot will be the first to know because the first thing I would do is order another one of his mounts. Thanks Lightfoot.

Thanks much! It is a very labor intensive transformation. I had hoped for a lower price point in the beginning. That was before I discovered the cost of tig welding and all of the associated pieces and supplies. I'm really not in it for the money.

I use a mount with bases I can see over if I want to remove the scope in the field to see over and use my 99F's open sights.

I can see over the Weaver mount bases if I remove the scope by loosening it's rings side screws.


That the first shot from it's cold barrel from my C.F. hunting rifles hit where I want it at 200 yds is more important to me that what groups it may shoot at 100 yds!

My match rifles must shoot groups. We get sighting shots at matches!

Hi, I just joined the forum, and just bought my first Savage 99. It is an 1899 250-3000, made in 1917. To be 100 years old, it is in great condition. Looks original except for a Redhead recoil pad someone added years ago. It has a Redfield sight mounted on the receiver. I noticed that a member named Lightfoot makes a scope base that I would be interested in. Can't wait to shoot this rifle and see what it will do.

I wondered how long it would take for one to make it to ebay cool

That's one of the earlier ones I made with the old Redfield mounts, I believe.

Curious, you bought the gun and someone left the mount on it?

If anyone can help me get hold of Lightfoot, please let me know as I have a 1937 Savage 99 from my great grand pappy that needs one of those no-drill scopes for a November Elk hunt and I'm sure going to need some time at the range before then!

Thanks much
