take the rings off and use the iron ones
nice very nice ....mounts look v high personally I'd get some medium height mounts and stick a no nonsence 6x42 Schmidt on her .
just noticed the foresight guess that the reason for high mounts
A low magnification 'scope should ghost out the front sight. A nice, cheap, continental 1" glass should do well. As fixed power 1" continental 'scopes aren't popular you should get one as cheap as a new USA 'scope. I've a 6x42 Swarovski on our Classifieds under my Leica binocular list at £350 but you'll get lower power for cheaper. Try Macleod's of Tain.

Many thanks for the replies, good food for thought although I am not totally convinced about iron sights, my eyes need all the help I can get regards sbm
Mine has a 2-7x32 Leopold on it, in CZ mounts. The rifle came with very high mounts like yours and a horrible, cheap, massive scope on top.

I have a stutzen in .243 and mine has a zeiss 6x42 on top. It does all I need
those rings are a bit high arent they? better to get lower rings if you want to use a sight.
Lovely rifles gents - I would dearly love to add a stutzen of some sort to my collection.
I do do now though want to go and roll around on some loden - is that common or is it just me?
For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent
