Hello everyone, 

 

This is a simple question, but I thought I would throw it out there before purchasing anything. 

 

I am wanting to put a reflex sight onto my CPC 1100. It will replace the 8x50mm stock finder, which I really don't need. Because the stock finder uses a different mount, I was going to purchase this dovetail base for the reflex.

 

However, I noticed this morning that the screws on my CPC are too spread apart to put two screws through this dovetail base. I will have to do with one. Will one screw hold the dovetail base in place? 

 

I figure several of you are using reflexes on your SCT. I am just curious what works. 

 

Thanks!

You want the SCT Finder Bracket

Here's the same on Amazon If you prefer shopping there.

If your reflex sight is a Telrad, double sided tape works just fine to hold the base to the OTA.
