What options are out there? Scout scope? looking for any ideas.

Aussie pal sent me a Lynx base and ring set for a SMLE build I did. Very nice, solid set up.

Check with Brownells...I just ordered a S&K "NO DRILL" mount for my 1903A3 and there were M96/98 mounts and SMLE listed.

I have 2 Swedes, one OEM "Long Tom" and one tricked out for target/hunting with a receiver sight...and two SMLE jungle carbines...I can't see sh** anymore so I need to scope ALL of them...I LIKE those deadly little 6.5 boolits. Big Grin tu2 BOOM

S&K has been around a long time and the mounts are solid.

READ the fine print and go online to S&K's site for all the info and part numbers.

If you don't mind drill&tapping, Weaver base # TO-1 is a one piece base for the SMLE. 2 holes in the recv;r ring and 2 in the charger bridge. Takes standard Weaver rings. No bolt handle alterations needed,
I think they offer another base w/a similar # that sits just a little higher and farther forward if you need that.

I just got done filling and making the holes from one of these disappear on a nice mid 20's SMLE for a customer.

I have one of these on my 1918 Lithgow in 350Myra

Danger and Death dance to the wild music of the gale, and when it is night they dance with a fiercer abandon, as if to allay the fears that beset the sailorman who feel their touch but see them not
