    Zeiss Diatal 6x42

    Equired the above but its only got one turret (on the top) with 4 small screws under the cap. It also has a rail under the scope. The reticle is similar to No4 but without the thin lines. Any idear how to adjust and what reticle no. it is.

    Older German scopes often had the windage adjustment incorporated in the rear mount, via opposing jam screws. You'd probably need to take it to a gunsmith in Germany to find a suitable set of mounts. Even if the top half of the mounts are still fitted to the scope, the mounting plates which go on the rifle can be very expensive to find and fit.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    Reckengle, Apel still make the rail type mounts. If you go to France the Edward Kettner's stores also stock them and their bigger stores employ gunsmiths, or used to according the to old catalogue I have, now it also depends on the rifle as some seem more commonly fitted with rail mounted scopes than others. Brno made mounts for their ZKK modles and Zeiss Jena scopes are commonly encountered, well fairly commonly, with these scopes and mounts.





    Of course the mounts differed for long and short actions.

    These scopes are normally fitted to SEM mounts (Suhler Einhakmontage) in the USA known as claw mounts.
    There is a usually a ring soldered to the barrel forward of the receiver with a dovetail cut in it then this has a block driven in sideways which has the lower front mount with 2 slots in it, also the rear lower mount is soldered (sweated) or screwed onto the rear reciever ring. This picture will help to understand the principles involved.

    I have a large collection of them.
    In the USA today a full set of lower and uppers fitted will run to 2400 dollars.

    As I said Apel do them:-

    You will notice that they make a wide variety of mounts for all applications and yes they do rail mounts for common rifles. You can also contact Zeiss as it seems they also make their ow mounts for the rail mounted scopes:-

    At $156US that's a darned sight cheaper than the $2400 US quoted in the post earlier .
