Hi all. I've had an HK SR9 (thumbhole stock) for several years in my safe and have finally decided to start shooting it.
I shoot in a local rifle club with targets at 500 & 800 yards. Q: Is there a period-correct HK/German optic that was issued with these rifles that I can use?
I'm finding plenty of after market and even original claw mounts, but with much lower power scopes.
If you were me, how would you go about addressing optics without compromising the originality of the rifle?
Should I start with this mount, and then look for an optic? https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/HK-G...e-118p2387.htm
Thanks very much in advance for your feedback.
Nah on that one. Get the 30mm ring mount, and buy a S&B, Zeiss, or Hensoldt variable to fit.
Be aware you will need one with a 2-1/2" eye relief. Any longer and you'll be miserable. 'Tain't easy to find.
You did say period correct. Let some 'practical' member try and talk you into a cheese-grater rail something.
I fix the radar you'all try to stay under...
Thanks for the info guys. I really appreciate it - especially the tip on the eye relief.
If anyone here has a period scope for sale, please reach out to me.
I have a Hendsolt z24 for sale if ur interested.

The 4-16x models can be had for $2500 to $3500, depending on reticle type, FFP / SFP, etc. Granted, that is still pricey.
Absolutely stunning, excellent glass though. It has spoiled me to nearly everything else. A few buddies have S&B which are fine. But a lot of scopes I used to like, from US Optics, and Nightforce, now just bother me due to "lack" of clarity. Really its just that the Hensoldt is so clear, that my aging eyes really notice the difference.
I was looking at the 4x16x models. Not unreasonable for what you get, but not great timing for me to spend at the moment.
