Scope mount for flat-receiver .303
Recently read an article about the No. 4 Mk 1 .303 British (SMLE). Question was WHAT scope mount for the flat receiver model ??? My No. 4 Mk. 1 has a Weaver TO-1 "quick-mount" and has been very good for over 20 years of packing the old gun in the brush AND on horseback. The gun-mount can be used with another scope-mount to switch another scope if wanted without changing the setting of the scope ( AFTER initial sight-in ). Most .303's have a round receiver that takes the "standard" mount. I got the TO-1 mount because it was a LOW mount, I hunted in brushy country and wanted a more compact unit. The sling mounts on the left side of the stock so the gun fits flat against my back (No trigger guard in the back), AND helps steady the gun when my arm goes thru it to shoot.
