Saw this on HK parts.
https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=17971&idcategory=118

I realize there are more modern optic technologies out there and plenty of optic/mount combos available. It seems like the general consensus is that the mount offered in the link is "the real deal" super solid and allows the use of iron sights while the optic is mounted. For $899 it would be hard to find a very good optic and mount combo agreed. I want to put some glass on my HK 91 and don't want to spend $2k to do it. What do my HK friends think of the item in the link and other options to consider?

These are 4x24 (not 4x28--- or am I missing something?)--- surplus items that DE does not need anymore (my guess)!!! :biggrin:

included the link to the product. Very helpful right?
Yes, very. The Hensoldt Wetzlar scopes like the one referred to in the link you posted are excellent. I've got at least six of them, with four set up for 7.62x51, one set up for 5.56, and one set up for 9mm Para. Top-quality, for sure. I make no comment whatsoever about what is a good price for these pieces of kit.

I prefer the commercial packaging (with labeling)--- quality "should" be the same (commercial/military surplus) on the scope/mount!!! :biggrin:
This is the price that German suppliers are asking, so I presume that this is where the price derives. :wink:

First time I looked at this thread the link was right there poking me in the eye - now it is MIA. Wonder if this happened to diesel1959 earlier ? Nice scope set-up anyway, afraid I do not have any useful experience with them to share. They have a tremendous reputation - but you already know that.

For $899 there are LOTS of better optics choices and mounts on the market.

However if you want to look "authentic" then that is the way to go.

Howdy. Anybody use these with a standard rifle stock ? Just wondering if some type cheek pad/riser would be in the "almost mandatory" category for most folks. Thanks.

Unless you have a long face, the use of the cheek riser is almost mandatory with a claw mounted scope.

Which interestingly negates the vaunted ability to use irons with the claw in place as you can't get face low enough without removing the riser.

Just curious what would be a better option in that price range in your opinion? I love the Brugger and Thommet mounts but I don't think you can use iron sights with those.
