Short side rail and long side rail mounts are easy enough to drill and tap in your garage as they mount onto a flat, tge woodworking just requires some removal around where tge mount sits. It's a little more difficult with turret mounts as your drilling into a cylindrical section so a proper clamp setup and radial drill are required.

Yes, from memory the ssr was used pre-war and most of the way through, with 3 variants. The lsr was an attempt to standardise on a simple mount more later in the war.

Oh yes, of you want a "snipers" rifle, don't go for the ZF41 as its a low power marksmanship aid and not a snipers scope. Not used for long range shooting as the sight picture is very small and eye relief rather long.

Everything WWA puts out snipers wise is repro, Nagants with PU's, Springfield's, SVT40's, K98 ZF41 combo' etc........

Loving the ssr mount k98 very nice.

The only pic I have off mine on my IPad. Lol. Long side rail mount with Carl Zeiss Zeilever scope.

Good luck with the rifle. Nice to see it when it's done


Really like the earlier buttplate :D, would have prefered one of those on mine. Take it that's a 6x or 8x by the size of the front aperture?

WOW, I think I've had more than my fair share of the first class help, thanks everyone! :D

I've finally decided that I'm going for an lsr mount, from accumounts which I've heard very good things about! Mentioned, is the mounting process by 'Commando Sniper', so I take it that the some of wood where the mount sits, is shaved off, not totally removed back to the metal receiver? I think you get an instruction guide from accumounts with the mount (I hope! :lol: ). Thanks again to everyone for your help!

I'm glad you like it. Lol.

It's and 8x i would say, but it has a double lens at the viewing lens, so it's slightly more.

Some pics of it, well the scope. Really need some more of the rifle. Lol.


To throw another mount in it all for a late dated rifle the swept back mount, like the Russians had. Nearly brought a rifle with one of them but went with lsr. I'm a sucker for Zeiss optics. Lol.

Glad its helped. Lsr is probably the best bet, it's a good solid choice and tbh can be done at a good cost.

The best way to learn how to fit it, would be google and you tube video (watch someone else f**k up lmao) and also do it right.

Good luck. When at shows have a look at people's see what they like aswell give you some ideas.

Yeah, hopefully a good choice! I've just had a look for some installations of the lsr mount, but I can't find a thing!!! I've read that original lsr sniper rifles had a thicker receiver, a more flat side to mount onto, but in a standard k98, how would you mount it?? Tbh that's the only bit I still am unsure of doing? Any help (I know - even more!)/links much appreciated!

Try searching within http://www.k98kforum.com/forum.php you should find something on there or at least ask someone will know where to find instructions. The people on there are collectors and enthusiasts of k98k's more so than some of us. Lol.

I'd say don't be afraid about cutting into the woodwork, with some marking out, a dremmel and fine sand paper you can cut a very nice channel for the mount base to be attached to the reciever of the rifle. Plus you can also give the stock a sand down and re-coat it in boiled linseed oil. My stock is a laminate stock and had been varnished post war. So after I cut the channel out I stripped the stock and coated it a number of times in BLO, looks very nice now :D

Hi Paul,

thanks for the advice! I think I will also probably end up refinishing the stock, but I'll wait and see how it turns out first, and if you want, I'll post some pictures of the rifle on here? So cutting the stock is relatively easy? Also, with regards to placement of the mount on the receiver, how will I be able to tell where to place it?

Thanks again, Patrick.
