A set of mounts and rings will cost about $550.00 and a smith that knows German snipers needs to install them as the scope is soldered into the ring. Most modern scopes either don't fit, or the tube would be ruined by soldering. The Scope is completely dismantled, everything, and the tube is soldered in place using a paste silver solder. Then the scope is re-assembled and zeroed. The Bases are also soldered on. After Zeroed it is drilled and tapped. The scope will run 1000.00 to 1500.00 depending on the model you can find. A Smith to do it is a minimum of $300.00. Everything has to be re-blued correctly also. A short side rail is much easier. After shipping, $2500.00 to have it scoped, or re-scoped.
