Scout Scope Mount

Hello and Happy Holidays to all. I have a sporter project that I've been working on for a while and I'm close to completing. I want to make this one into a "scout rifle" by mounting the scope on the rear sight base. Does anyone know of, or used, a resource for a scope base that will fit on the rear sight base? Is there anything already out there that will work?

Thanks in advance,
EB

Hi EBall & Welcome to the forum I do not know anyone that currently make a long eye relief scout scope mount, I thought about taking a Mosin-Nagant 91/30 mount & have it milled down to fit the Gew88 rear sight base that way I would not be doing any damage or permanent change to my originals. If you look for post that says finished my sporter project you will see a different setup from our member CASEC he also makes & sells his scope mounts & did have some bolt heads he had made up

Thanks for the response. You know, I thought about getting one of those (91/30 Mosin) and seeing what it would take to make it work. I've seen where you can pick one up fairly cheap on EBay. I saw the pictures where the other person is making them that appear to screw onto where the barrel jacket does, but that won't work for my purpose. Is the rear sight on the Gew88 the same as on the '91 Argentine?

I looked at one I have for a 91/30 that I did get from ebay just needs a little off on both sides & maybe clean out the screw mount holes looks like it should fit then will try to see if I can get it done

I am the only person to ever manufacture a scout mount for a Gew 88. Please see my post about my sporter project.
