    Default STANAG mount - But which STANAG standard?

    People refer to the claw mount on a G3 as a "STANAG mount," but which STANAG document defines its dimensions etc.?

    Google fails me, and all I'm getting is search results for the new standard, STANAG 4694.

    In NATO, a STANdardization AGreement (STANAG) defines processes, procedures, terms, and conditions for common military or technical procedures or equipment between the member countries of the alliance. Each NATO state ratifies a STANAG and implements it within their own military.

    It can and does mean many things, as it is literally the way they standardized all their parts used by NATO militaries. STANAG is simply a designator.

    There are two factory claw mounts. One has 30mm rings built in and is not the STANAG mount. Street on these is $300-450

    The other is, and has two 7mm holes on a 108mm spacing for attaching to NV or a scope with 6mm screws. These are everywhere, at times as low as $75.

    STANAG's are published by the NATO Standardization Office in Brussels, Belgium--- I know of no other place to retrieve "dimensional documentation"!!!

    Thank you T...

    Exactly what I tried to tell them... but what do I know?

    There are several claw mounts. I have three different ones, I'd have to go look. One for the NV HK scope. Two that were considered 'PSG1' scope mount, and it's the one that encloses the scope and is 30mm and you can get 1" rings for it. Last one is made by UTG and is smaller.


    This is the one for the NV scope

    STANAG claw mount - the one with the 30mm rings

    UTG STANAG claw mount - the smaller one
    https://www.robertrtg.com/store/pc/U...NT-30p2353.htm

    again, the STANAG is basically an agreement between NATO military's so that they have 'the same type' of equipment - that is all - it is all about the SEMANTICS of the weapons spelled out

    @ak4b --- on a side note, do you happen to know how many of the 1.5x (AK5) and 3x (AK4) experimental scopes were produced?

    I'm really not sure how anybody could have read my question and think I needed to heard the definition of "STANAG" three times...

    Anyway, on another forum, someone dug this up for me:
    https://ndiastorage.blob.core.usgovc.../Arvidsson.pdf

    On slide 3, it refers to a rescinded STANAG -- STANAG 2324 Rules governing the interchangeability of securing and holding devices for infra-red scopes on carbines, rifles and light machine guns -- which only seems to specify the interface between the claw mount and the base of a scope with an unspecified tube diameter. Am I to assume that the claw mount is in no way defined / codified by a STANAG, and is just a proprietary HK "standard"? I looks that way, since the same STANAG 2324 seems to also have been used, with adapters, on the FN FAL and FN49.

    After checking my Hensoldt scope with calipers, its dimensions seem to fit the diagram in the presentation.
