Been searching the net for a blued colt new frontier scout mount. Looking to use as a survival gun. Will run 22 short all the way up to 22 magnum. Would like to mount a long eye relief scope. Any one have one or can point me in the right direction. Thinking I may have to make one.

Probably easier to find a Ruger Single Six with both the 22 mag and standard 22 cylinders. They come in stainless. There are some models that hold more than 6 but those don’t usually have both cylinders. Case size is slightly larger on mag so if you shoot a 22LR in a mag chamber it goes bang but splits the case. Also FYI on eBay there are chamber adapters to shoot pistol calibers out of a 12 ga or 20 ga. I would stay away from a long eye relief scope for this use, perhaps a small red dot if you must but scoped handguns adds a lot of weight and makes it more easily damaged. A takedown 10-22 or Charger might lend itself better to an optic.
