Bought a mint shape one today with two mags and I think it called a 05 mount today .For $1200.Only thing it has a crappy Nikon scope on it .The rings are one inch.Im looking for advice on putting a period correct scope on it on..anyone give me any ideas
You did very well on the purchase as the scope mount alone sells for $500plus and the extra magazine half that depending on capacity.
I had the same question when I purchased some of the HK sporting rifles and although I had some responses, I ended up putting a Vortex Diamondback and it's worked out well. I have one on my HK 300 and had one on my HK 770 before I sold the rifle.
A period scope would be a 4 or 6x Schmidt and Bender, Zeiss, Hensoldt or even a Swarovski. Just be careful of the diameter of the ocular end. Some scopes won't clear the rear diopter and still have proper eye relief on the SL6/7's.
Edit to add: That's if you are using the factory 05 mount. If your using the B-square or the A.R.M.S./Swan rail, you have a little better chance due to the fact you can use higher height rings on those rails.
