Hi guys

I have seen on ebay a sniper scope from Germany, I am not sure if this is a real WW2 scope, its £115. The question is can these be easily fitted to a my rifle or do i have to cut some of the wood away in order to fit it? I have seen some pics of the snipers rilfes and it looks as though they have a bit taken out of the wood by the bolt action on the left side, am i correct? So are they easy or hard to fit? Also is this a good price for one?

There are a hugh number of repro Russian Sniper Scopes and Mounts out there.

Some American dealers will even supply you with the complete kits including the correct drills and taps to thread the mounting holes, but is it realy worth the expense for what will still be a repro sniper rifle. You will also need a new cocking handle unless you intend to modifiy your own by bending it.

There is an original rifle currently being advertised on Milweb. Other Firearms dealers in the UK will have them on their lists if you can persuade them to deactivate for you. Do a lot of research before buying to avoid getting ripped off.

Try this site.

since I've got the camera out, here is the scope setup on my MN sniper rifle.
Its the post war scope.
The mount is serial numbered to the gun (along with the bayonet)
