    Default Need scope advice for a HK91

    I have an IB(‘81) code HK91. I also have a HK fixed ring claw mount. Trying to determine a good optic that would be correct for this period. Looking at an older Schmidt and Bender 1.5x6 that has a duplex reticle. Also looking at an older Zeiss 1.5x6 with a bottom post reticle. I want the glass to be period for the scope. Not interested in putting new optics on it.

    Thanks in advance for thoughts and comments.

    You might also be able to find an old Karl Kahles. I put one on my SL7 and it's pretty sweet for old glass. Good luck in your search, I found mine on ebay and it was pretty cherry.

    MY IB coded HK91 dressed up as a PSG1 legacy rifle

    MY OTHER IB coded HK91 dressed up as an MSG90

    The scope I used both times is the Redfield 6-18x40 accurange - the scope has a 1" body - this scope was a big deal back in the late sixties to the eighties... one of the best for the time and the accu range gives shooter the ability to range your target out to 800 yards

    Here is a 3-9 accurange to give you an idea of what you look at through this scope - note the two thin two lines at the top of the scope - you put those on the shoulder of the large deer or elk you are going to shoot - them adjust it so that shoulder is between those two lines exactly and the scope will tell you the distance to your target with a tab at the 6 o'clock position - just an old school way to range a target

    here is one on the bay for $300 -

    So with your claw mount (which is exactly what I used) you need the 1" rings that you can pick up from robertrtg or hkpartsnet... when I purchased the two HK Claw Mounts that I used, they came with the 1" rings

    robertrtg.com - $40

    hkparts.net - $90

    Thanks everyone...my mount has the 1” ring inserts included so I can go either tube size. I have another 91 that is set up with a Hensoldt Z-24. I also have a mint Z-51 night scope I can pop on when the mood is right:)

    I put an ACOG on mine. Had to stick the claw mount in the milling machine and cut out a couple of notches to make it work. I'm liking it.
    I don't have much but what I have counts.

    Hensoldt Z-24 - check - in the MSG90 pix top right - I recently attached it to an MP5 to test the fit
    Z-51 night scope - check - several years ago - really nice old school tech that works GREAT
