I just got my first rifle today. It is a British .303 which I will be using to hunt whitetail. I'm not exactly sure what style gun I have but I know some .303s require special mounting hardware for scopes. I'm trying not to spend much as my budget is very tight. The gun was only $130. Any suggestions for mounting a scope?
Your .303 appears to be a No1 Mk III* and the scope will mount similar to marc29th's No4 Mk1. I'll post a picture later this afternoon of the mounts on a No1. And if yours is a No1 then that is not a fixed magazine, but the magazine release appears to be missing. That should be easy to fix and inexpensive.
