This is the 340D 222 I recently traded for. I found a side - scope mount and rings and mounted a 3x9x50mm cheapie Tasco. I notice that it is not centered over the bore but slightly to the right of the bore. The bolt handle on full throw upward will touch the rear scope bell. Well crap!
I don't see any way to adjust this so that it is centered. I realize it's not the end of the world to have some offset but as the handle bumps the scope it's far from ideal.
Any advice? Anyone want a scope mount? Happy to trade :)
Yea, I never saw anything so poorly made as the weaver side mount, I couldn,t stand looking at it so off center myself thats why I purchased the
B-square for my 340-c .222, and I have a 3-9X40mm Nikon on it with plenty of room for a bigger scope if i want...and I see Amazon is selling one
for the 340 under the name of Sun Optics for $29.67 I,m guessing its the same thing.

I've got the stamped steel Weaver mount on my .222 - using a Weaver K6 scope - it's not off center and there is no interference with the bolt handle. Just bought another of the same mount, too. New 340 project brewin'. . . .
I ended up going with the Weaver center mount scope mount. Matched with a Bushnell banner 1-4 power. Its a great match.
Unfortunately mine was not predrilled for a scope mount, but it seems most of the old timer Gun smiths are very familiar with the 340's
Was at the gun show yesterday and there were 5 of them around. Almost walked out with a 222 with a scope, but mama looked at me...and grrrrr not taking her to gun shows any more.
