I have a really nice Savage Enfield that shoots wonderfully. However, I would like to put a scope on it. I am wanting to shoot targets at 500 meters and the iron sights just arent enough for that range for me.

I have plenty of brass and 174 grain Sierra Match Kings to load ammo for it.

I really want to preserve this rifle, as its in original condition. Are there any good scope mounts out there for my rifle that wont permanently modify it?

B-Square are the non-permanent scope mount folks:

I have a similar rail mount that I got with an Enfield, but it has no markings and is lower in profile. I'm not sure of the brand. It has a funky set-screw arrangement, but once figured out, it stays rock solid and doesn't do any damage to the rifle. Check B-Square and S&K, it may be one of those.

I've used both B-Screwed and S&K. I like to S&K personally. The early S&K has a slightly lower mounting. The S&K uses the backsight cross screw and a wedge under the charging bridge. It is very secure with no movement, I had problems with the B-S moving with it's two screw mounting. I use the old steel tube Weavers and they weight more than the new aluminum scopes.




It got rained on and shrunk.

I have a B-square with a 3-9x40 scope on my #4 Mk1 and have had zero problems with it. Have taken a number of deer with this rifle up to 275 yards.

I used the ATI scope mount with good results. You have to remove the rear sight, but it's non-permanent. And, it's cheap, something like $30.

My "tanker" started as a sporter that was cut down to 18" but poorly done. I took a additional inch and ahalf off and re-crowned for the total length of 16.5".

Here's the fore-end after cutting and fitting. I'm in the process of doing the same with a No1. It's going to be the "Bulldog".

Both the short forward hand guard pieces are secured by the front band

If you have the standard 300/600 L-type flip rear sight, you can replace that with the type mk1 milled steel construction battle sight apeture and fine adjustment thru 1300 meters. I put one of these on without a sweat and using the same 174 grain MKs precise shooting is a dream. Since this was a std sight option, I can clean up in my local misurp battle rifle matches. Here is the link to Liberty Tree Collectors which has them in stock and other stuff.
