I have a model 608 Taurus 357 Magnum with an 8 3/8 inch barrel. I am trying to mount a scope to it for deer hunting.
So I did a bit of searching and found a mount made by Taurus for this gun. After waiting 10 days I finaly recieved it via snail mail. I went to mount it on the gun and what a piece of crap! IT FITS ABOUT AS SNUG AS A "HOT DOG IN A HALLWAY !!!!!" not to mention it appears to have been designed to fit a gun with a 4" barrel. I studied it for about an hour, trying to figure out how I could modify it or what could be done to make it work.
Has anyone gone through this and what did you do to make it work.
Is there an after market mount out there that would work better? or one from another gun that would work?
Any input would be appreciated, before I get so frustrated and trade it in on a S&W!!!
