Griffin & Howe Side Mount
I recently picked up a Mannlicher Schoenauer Model 1908 in 8X56 MS for a good price - came with a side mount base but no mount/rings. I figured it was a G&H or Jaeger, which I have more than a few of, and bought it. It is a G&H ... but a single lever, which I had never in about 50 years seen one of. :(
Did a fair amount of searching, saw one offered for about what I paid for the rifle. Threw out an offer at half price and instead of the finger got an OK.
A few shots -
Other than being a bit harder to find and more than the two lever G&H, anything special about this mount? Did G&H ever serial number their bases? This one is stamped "6" on the inner underside of the rail.
