Hello. First time poster. Could some one tell me if a Picatinny rail can be mounted on an O/U above the chamber? I’ve gotten mixed responses. Some say that it can’t be done because it would require drilling too close to the chamber. Others say that a good gunsmith could and has done it with no problem. Not sure what to believe and would appreciate any thoughts on this. Thanks!

Get a pump! If you are mounting a rail, you want more than 2 shots.

Ha ha. Tend to agree normally! I’m building a turkey gun though. The rail is for optics. The more I look at this, the more I think that it can be done. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you!

You could probably D&T into a vent rib over the chambers for a picatinny mount, but it would require a soft touch and machining skill to not touch the barrel tubes whatsoever.
