I'm not all that into optical sights, whether scopes or red-dots, but I would like to have the option to mount either one on my GSG StG-44...

Who makes a mount that will adapt???

Here's a close-up of the StG-44 rear sight showing some kind of 'rail'...

It's a STANAG claw mount.
The one I have is from UTG, box says # HK02 Gen 2 Steel, model MNT-HK02.
All steel,very solid mount.
Bought a cheap STANAG scope to go with it.
Fits the STG-44 like a glove but on my GSG-5, it's so tight I can't lock it in position.
I hear that in order to zero the rifle at 50 yds you have to set the open sights to 800 meters, hoping the scope will save me from that.

Hmmmmm...I was actually thinking of a mount that attached beneath the rear sight...

How did the Vampir infra-red sight mount on the real StG-44???

Here's a site with a scope mount under the rear sight -

I could see maybe a red-dot being usable mounted that far forward but an optical scope?

It's a Leapers AccuShot 4XT38 Tactical Scope - Stanag mount.
I had gotten it via Amazion.com from http://tickbitesupply.com/ but I don't see it listed there any more.
You can probably Google it for other suppliers.
