Hi everyone,

I have viewed these boards many times but have not added to them :(

Sooo, allow me to make my first post/question.

I have two optics that I am in need of a mount/rings for.

The first was an old B&L 4X that has no adjustments for Windage or Elevation.  This was my Grandfathers and I would like to put on on my Dad's 30-30.  He remembers the scope and it would be a nice present for him.

The second is a little project I am working on.  I have been toying around with using a Hensoldt magnifier 2.6X as a sort of low budget AR scope.  I can illuminate the reticle and use it as a poor man's agoc.  Again I would need some sort of W&E adjustable mount or ring.

Anyone have any ideas?  The B&L appears to be 1" and the Hensoldt appears to be between 1" and 30mm.  It is not either of those two for sure.

Thanks everyone,
Mortis...

Welcome to OT.  first I would discourage the idea of installing a scope on the 30-30 unless it is a marlin which comes with a tapped reciever or a bolt gun.  The winchesters from a few years back were all top eject and ment to be a light fast rifle.  In any case the old B&L with no internal adjustments is not at all a practical scope when compared to what is available today.  There is probably someone who has the W&E adjustable mounts but my what a clumsy contraption that makes for a hunting gun.  The Heinsoldt magnifier might be able to be used behind an aimpoint however I would not want to.  Someone but Im not sure who had some of them in a flip mount that they were using behind an aimpoint.  There again you would be well advised to install a more common choice on your thousand dollar rifle.  Aimpoint, EOtech, ACOG,  Super Sniper etc.

Urimaginaryfrnd,

Thank you for the welcome and the reply.  

Your logic is sound and you are correct.  No disputing it. 

The 30-30 is a Glenfield (Marlin) and placing the scope on there is more nostalgic than anything. Probably not the best idea on my part.  I do concede that I will not endeavor to do this one.

Now the Hensoldt is a different story.  This will be for my trunk/truck camping carbine that is a mixture of left over parts.  This is a 2.6x optic with Zeiss glass, etched reticle, and in every respect, combat ready.  For the cost of it and the weapon it will be placed on, it really would be an effective tool. I was hoping that there were lower cost adjustable mounts available, but I really don't think they exist.  Chinese made ones perhaps, but I don't like that idea at all.  I was considering a temporary mount/ring that would allow me the stability to sight in with the Hensoldt that I could tig weld after the fact.  I may end up improvising a solution but I was thinking that someone here may have done something similar and may have some advice.

Thanks again Urimaginaryfrnd,
Mortis...
