The scope mount is machined from a solid block of 7075 aluminum. Mounts with 4 screws on the left and 2 on the right. It won't move..Make more?.... Well, tell me how many Mosin people will pay more for a mount than they paid for the firearm. I couldn't make them for less than $200 each.......unless, quantity...

A lower profile, wouldn't be a see thru, and wouldn't have enough clearance for the bolt.

I guess it depends on how much of your sight you need to see, if your only using irons as backups then 1-300 M would be enough. And it would depend on what kind of bolt your using. Any reason your using 7075 instead of 6061? Seems like all scope mounts Ive seen made out of aluminum are made of 6000 series.

Hi Ed -- I like the looks of your mount. Most of all I like the fact that its hand made and not store bought.

Ed, great job on the mount!! :thumbup:

Always a joy to see another machinist working these old warhorses! Our resident machinists are Shepard, and iridium-192. Both do great work, and have an imagination too!!

Welcome to tho forum, and I look forward to getting your input in the future! 8-)

Why did I use 7075 instead of 6061 aluminum?.7075 is much harder and stiffer than 6061....I also made special parts for KTM SuperBikes, and there requirements are 7075....

The 7075 aluminum alloy, while not being entirely different from 6061 aluminum alloy, is both more expensive and more prone to corrosion than 6061 aluminum alloy. The 7075 alloy is primarily composed of zinc as the alloying agent of the aluminum, as well as higher levels of magnesium and copper than are found in 6061 aluminum.... This makes this composition of aluminum alloy as hard as many steels while still retaining the lightweight qualities of aluminum.
