Scout scoping an M-N


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Have any of you guys mounted a long eye-relief scope on an M-N ? The concept appeals to me for a number of reasons.....not least of which is it wouldn't interfere with the stock bolt handle. I don't want to get into the $10 horse and $40 saddle trap here ; so what about the mounts ( on eBay ) that attach to the stock rear sight, and the scopes offered there ? I know " you get what you pay for", but keeping in mind, the gun will be used mostly in lightly wooded to heavy brush for deer and then only two or three times per year, what are your thoughts? Thanks in advance.......

Yep - works out pretty good. Mounted a 2x power pistol scope to the rear sight base and it hasn't bobbled a bit.

The mount is a "B-Square" and the scope is a Burris 2x. The scope has lots of adjustment range and the mount offers crude adjustments, also.

I bore sighted it and popped off 3 shots at 25 yards, first shot 10 ring second shot, I couldn't see another hole so I thought another 10. Such was not the case. I went to tighten things up and it started falling apart in my hands. I went back and followed the instructions to the letter and lock tighted all the screws...same results. I wish I could have seen them side by side, you can see there is no comparison. I installed the s and k, sighted it in and haven't touched it since. It has maintained zero for over a year. I purchased a long eye relief 2 to 7 x 30 Leepers, not as forgiving as a regular scope, but hey it works great and I'm very happy. Another issue, my Swede is PERFECT a 99.5 and that **** b-square rubbed against the hand guard, I,m glad I only shot it six times. The s and k is about twice as much, but it as solid as traditional mounts.
Good Luck

Sorry to hear you have had so much trouble with the B-Square mount.

I've installed several of them on Swedes, Czech M48 and Swiss K-31's, all with equal success. Guess I just got lucky with them!

the scout concept is silly. You dn't need such handling speed for hunting, and if you do need speed, it's for combat, and then god help you if all you have is a bolt action.

Being - you're becoming quite objectionable - seems you roam the board with a pootie stirring stick to get reactions. Be careful - you are on shaky ground.

The "Scout" concept on ex-military rifles is definitely not for speed. It's so us old guys with failing eyesight that no longer make open sights viable are able to install optics on these vintage firearms to enjoy a modicum of accuracy without marring their collector value with unnecessary drilling or tapping. I can't find anywhere in this thread the mention of needing to increase the speed using these items.

The initial post listed why a scout scope setup was desired, didn't see anything silly or foolish about it, in fact it was for very practical reasons.
