    Nice, but most of the gunsmiths around here scratch their heads about getting a rail scope mounted. No doubt it is a superior method, though.

    I've just gone through this route myself and built up the correct german mounts. To do it yourself, its about $450 for the mounts from EAW or Recknagel in Germany. It takes thoughtful measuring, but a person with patience and a good caliper can figure out the correct pivot mounts to make a scope like this work. New England Custom Gun can build the correct mounts for this gun in pivot mount format at $500-$600. A claw mount for about $1200-$1400. Here's a link to the limitless possible mounting options that exist to put this scope on virtually any gun properly: http://www.eaw.de/assets/files/2017/EAWsm_gb2017.pdf

    It's a great scope and should be considered. Had I not already purchased rings for the pivot system and had the sunk costs, I would have been a likely customer.

    If your drilling or combo has never had a scope mount installed then a pivot mount is cheaper and more versatile. If you already have a claw type installed on the gun then I would stick with that set up. It is not every day you see a scope of this vintage that is NIB and I sure that I will regret selling it one of these days.

    It's a rail mount scope, so why would it matter? You can't mount a ring to a rail scope. It appears to be 30mm approximate tube size.

    Because the height of my claw mounts are for a 1" tube on the 14mm rail. The height is different and won't work.

    @Moosemind take a look at your rail and claws carefully. Are they EAW or Recknagel? If yes, you may be able to get an offset shim to allow them to work correctly. I've done this myself. Mark at NECG stocks many of these parts so you don't have to wait for an import.
