Hello at all,
thank you for supporting me with my BSA and my scope mount questions. In return I would like to tell you about an hungarian scope mount system.
As a german I am addicted to detachable scope mounts like Ernst Apel swing off mounts, but that option were too expensive for a student like me. Therefore my gunsmith told me about the hungarian scopemounts. These mounts are the most common mounts in Hungary and the factory also does full customized mounts for any type of guns.
This is what they look like with the rings on top of the bases:
The mount system is based on the principles of the german swing off mounts. The front is linked by turning the dovetail in the base and fixed by the rear with a firm clip that locks the rear ring on the base. Pretty simple system and a strong linkage.
The price is also an argument for these mounts. The bases with two sets of rings (available in 30 mm, 1" or weaver-stile) cost about 230 Euro (200 GBP).
