Thread: messed up scope mount on old rigby

    messed up scope mount on old rigby

    For all those classic rifle experts:

    I guided someone yesterday who had a 1906 Rigby in .275, built on an Oberndorf Mauser action. It was a lovely rifle, but whoever had added the scope mounts seems to have made a real mess. Could people take a look and tell me what the extra flange is coming off the left hand side of the receiver?

    In the absence of a photo I would guess it's a Holland and Holland type side mount Mungo.

    A friend thought he was getting a bargain at an auction & snapped up an old Mauser for 125 & then had to have one of these H&H mounts made for it; I seem to remember it cost him about 500!

    Old Original H&H mount I think. Collectors item.

    How would it work? Looks like scope would be off to the left of the bore. Do you use your left eye?
