I would like to change out my vintage Unerti Hawk on my pre 64 M70 to a modern better light gathering scope. Is it a big deal to remove this Lo Swing mount and seal the screw holes? It's pretty ugly looking and It looks like the stock was cut away a bit. Here's a few pics....

You wont really know what condition the reciever is in under that mount until you remove it. Since its an ugly mount I would just take it off and take a look to see what you want to do there are several options most require a good gunsmith. You may need to refinish the metal and choices vary depending on how you plan to use the rifle if it is a hunting gun that you plan to keep and hunt wiht you might consider having the metal refinished in something like Walter Birdsong Black T finish which is highly corosion resistant.  Those are great rifles but any modification from factory original hurts collectable value so this ones a shooter.  Id definately put a nice scope on it and probably a Leupold FX3  6x42 with long range duplex.

Thanks for the reply....it is going to be used for hunting. I got the whole setup for $200 so I don't mind putting some money into it. The hard part I think is going to be finding a good gunsmith in my area!
