How it works:
The rail with the screw holes and locating pins would be attached to the rifle's receiver on the left side by drilling 5 holes (3 threaded for the mounting screws, 2 for locator pins). The rail with the rings is removable from the rail that attaches to the rifle's receiver. This allowed the owner to store the scope in a sturdier box or case to keep it from being damaged by whoever was handling the rifle case.

I have a couple of G&H mounts sitting on my workbench, the detachable scope mounts have become more of a curio than a practical scope mount these days. The cost of replacing the rings is several times the cost of buying a good modern base, drilling and tapping, and mounting a scope. But in their day, G&H mounts were the ticket.
