Thread: What make of mounts are these?

  1. #1

    What make of mounts are these?

    I bought the rifle second hand. The rifle was manufactured in Nov 05. I am working on the assumption that the rings were new and bought about the same time. They could well now be out of production.

    Any good?

    Please also feel free to name the scope (I do know the name) from the very limited view in the photos.

    That's a matter of personal opinion. Some will say that they are rubbish and others will say that they are very good. I've had them on previous rifles with no problems and I would buy them again without any concern. They are certainly better than many mounting systems and are probably the most readily available.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Correct. Probably about 2006 manufacture. Similar in quality to my S&B (made in West Germany so pre '90) 6x42 scope.

    Do you know who sells Apel mounts? I can't seem to find a dealer.

    Apel are imported by Sentry Trading http://www.st.uk.com/ but you cannot order direct - your local firearms dealer should be able to help, I got mine through Sloans of Inverurie, just north of Aberdeen. Paul Grannell is the guy at Sentry Trading, I'm sure he can advise a local dealer to you. I'm also waiting for a set of rail mounts from Alan Rhone - Recknagel that look very good and made in Germany - maybe worth considering?

    Thanks for the responses. I think I will stick with these as they do the job. Apel are not cheap, a nice to have but for me not necessary.
