Mount for Tristar Raptor 20ga Youth?
« on: February 13, 2020, 09:48:39 AM »
I’m planning on picking up a Tristar Raptor Youth 20ga for my daughter. I’d like to mount a Vortex Venom on top. The Raptor’s receiver has a groove running down it that looks like it will accept a mount. Anyone have any experience with the Raptor and an optic?

Ncstar makes a 3/8 dovetail to picatinny. There are a few options search computer for 3/8 dovetail to picatinny mount.

I went down this road for my viper 20ga. Never found anything i liked. Most seemed cheap for airgun use. I ended up sending to sumtoy and had it drilled and tapped.

Hope this helps.

monstrum tactical on amazon has a low profile dovetail to picatinny mount for $12.95 that will work.

 Most of the mounts I looked at were all around $10 on amazon and eBay. I see the Sun Optics is $30+
I wonder if it is a better quality? No problem with holding zero with heavy loads?

I don't know if the sun optics is better or not than any of the others it's $24 right now at optics planet. I have had it on the gun for two years and it's not moved any at all. Again the others may be just as good or better that is just the one that I got after looking into my options. The other option if you don't like a dovetail adapter would be to check into getting it drilled and Tapped.
