    Help Identify This Saddle Mount

    I purchased a second hand scope from Germany that came with the attached saddle mount, can anyone help identify what make of rifle it is suitable for? The rings are 30mm and secured to the base by allen bolts. The front 'turn in' part is also secured by allen bolts and seems removable.

    Many Thanks

    The swing of part looks a bit like apel as do the rings but that's a stab in the dark.

    As said Apel but possibly Reckengle?

    The mount could fit any number of different rifles that use that system it's almost impossible to identify the actual make and model of rifle or gun it was intended for from the photographs. It's not an unusual mounting system in Europe. Are there any markings on the mount at all?

    As to the actual make it certainly looks similar to mounts made by recknagel but the rear fixing is different to the current system of locking it in place. It could be made by Apel (AEW) but it could also be made by Virtus of Suhl or a Czech company whose name escapes me at the moment but I do recall that their products were imported by Edgar Brothers a few years back.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Looks like a mount for a Merkel double rifle or drilling

    Possibly a Kozap one, but what for is anybodies guess, but with knowing what it is for
    it is worth very little to anybody, if you find out what it is for, 100 or more, I'd investigate a bit further if it were me.

    Kozap was the name I was trying to remember. Is the dovetail at the rear of the mount 11mm?
