I have this Mauser sporter in 30-06 was my dads hhunting rifle at one time it had a 3x9 scope on it ,it has since gone away. I am looking for a scope that fits the weaver side mount and rings it already has on it , no I aint drillin more holes in it for top mounts too damn high my friend has a set up like that and its uncomfortable as hell. I tried a bushnell 4x40 and the lense bell lays on the barrel so it obviously must be smaller than a 40 mm, I also tried a weaver V-4.5 variable and it is too short?? the bolt gets into it with the occular bell and the lo mount safety dont like it either. what should I do?? here are some pics at photobucket for reference. thanks in advance Dave.
