    OK I was missing that point that there's no action/receiver separate from the barrel to be tapped for the scope mount. I'd suggest talking to a machinist (like allenm) about how to attach it to the barrel.

    No, the stock is not the action, the barrel functions as the receiver/action.

    Correct. The stock only acts as a trigger housing.

    Which will flex more, synthetic stock or metal barrel?

    I would not mount a scope to a stock. Slight bend, crack, bump, and you're shooting several feet even yards off target.

    Do it once, do it right, mount it to the barrel.

    Drill and tap the barrel. Mount a scope base, then rings, then a scope. You can use a quick detach scope mount if you really want to totally disassemble to clean the barrel. Personally, total disassembly is over rated.

    For my interests it would be for a muzzleloader with bedded barrel and tang. But, perhaps there's someone out there that has experience with stock materials with sufficient or insufficient tensile strength, thermal stability, bonding agents, whatever.
    Anyone?
    Have you tried duct tape yet? I'd start there first. Then as a last resort drill your stock for mounting a scope.

    When Knight was making muzzle loaders they drilled and taped the barrel it worked just fine.
