I just picked a nice Swedish Mauser Sporter from Allan's Armory last week. Its in 8mm mauser and made by Husqvarna. See Pics.

It has a side mount I think would be for a scope mount. Anyone know where I could find a base for the mount? Or does this mount just take rings and if so where might I find the proper rings?

That reminds me of a military style mount. If you haven't already, you might want to ask the experts at Mauser Central http://www.mausercentral.com/forum/index.php

NICE...

That was set up for a detachable scope as you can tell. It is not a converted military Mauser but it was built as a classic hunting sporter. Thus while it has a stripper clip guide... it does not have the thumb cut out which weakens the action.

Go to the Swedish Hunting and Sporter collectors section of GUN BOARDS

I am thinking maybe a 3/8 dovetail scope ring may fit. Like the one that Accumounts sells.

The top of the dovetail is a little under 1/16 of being 3/8 wide. So am not sure if these would fit.
