German Mauser

What is the best scope mount for an 8mm GERMAN Mauser?

I have recently acquired a nice 8mm German Mauser, but it still has the original WWII sights. I want to use this weapon for hunting medium to large game, but the original sights are not working out too well. Anyone know of a good scope mount for this weapon?

funny... those sights that are not working out very well worked very well for years...Mil type battle and ladder sights are very accurate and easy to use sighting systems

military sights are regulated for issued bullet weights. Seems many mil spec rifles will shoot low or high using commercial ammo. I'd work on sighting in my rifle with whatever commercial load you like... that top notch on that ladder sight should be minute of whitail out to 100 yards

If you have a real german Mauser ...dont drill and tap it. Some Mausers are very collectetable and loose value if molested.

Pick up a Chez Yugo 48 version and scope that if you really need a scope
