I need some information on an older scope, circa 1950. I have acquired a Mossberg model M4D, 4x scope (3/4 tube) with a Weaver .22 cal tip off mount which I intend to mount on a Mossberg M44 US .22 cal military training rifle. I would like to remove the tip off mount. I can of course dremel the mount but I would prefer not to. I found a schematic for the scope http://www.box54.com/ex2m4d.jpg
The question, what happens if I remove screw S386 and plate S795 and slide the mount off? Do I destroy the scope or will I be able to re-attach everything without too much of a problem?
If anyone knows of a place to have the scope serviced, I'd be more than happey to send it out to be serviced and the mount removed.
Thanks for looking and your help.
BTW, check out the prices.
