Can they be?
I've got a Mannlicher in .243 with a flip up scope mount that I got from an old family friend. Thing is in great shape (man. 1962), and has a Weaver K4 scope on it. Even has a nice set trigger.
Would love to see what this thing can do, but it seemed like the scope moves around a when in the upright position.
I just messed with it a bit tonight, and all the screws are tight. Can't find the right size allen wrench for it yet, but will check those tomorrow.
I did take the screw loose on the actual metal piece that catches the knob that sticks down from the top of the scope mount to hold it in place. And that seemed to tighten it up a bit.
But before I waste too much ammo ( I don't reload, so it can get expensive), I'm wondering if there are any other things I can do to make it a sturdy scope mount?
Or is it a cheesy design? Feel free and let me know if I'm just pissing in the wind here and just need to use the irons (what a bummer that will be).
Can take pictures if that would help.
I'd like to see pics.
