    Scout Mounts, LER Scopes for M96

    I can't find the threads that dealt with the pros and cons of various scout mounts and LER/pistol scopes for the M96. I am ready to buy but need help. I do not want to permanently alter the rifle in any way. I wear glasses and am drawing Social Security, so you can figure my eyes are not what they used to be.

    The Tasco 3x28mm scope is no longer available. Its been a good scope for this application. The NcStar are ok. I have a 4x32 illuminated reticle. It needs to come back further so I'm using the Tasco for the time being.


    The only good long eye relief mount is the S&K.

    I cannot find the Tasco 3x28 on eBay or any other site. Is there another scope that has the same qualities? A 3-or 4-power is just what I want. From what you say the NC is not as useful.

    I'm afraid I'm not currently up on long eye relief scopes.

    I put an S&K mount on this CG m/96. I use the 2-7x32 NcStar. It's working just fine for me so far. (sorry, only picture I have)


    and I was able to do this consistently:


    Just, if you do mount this S&K on your rifle, once it's zeroed in, loctite every screw!! Some of my screws came loose and that fixed it right up.

    Just got on to Howard at S&K. A question to solidate what i allready think is right. Having a CG converted to M38 with t marked rear sight and narrow rear sight protector ears, I will need the Husqvarna mount? Did the Huskys have the narrower base?

    If your asking which S&K mount (the CG or Husquvarna) you need, the issue is with which rear site base you have (CG or Husq.). Here's the two:

    A CG Rear Sight Base:


    A Husquvarna Rear Sight Base:


    Distiquish between the two by the stepped base (on the CG) and extra "ears" on the rear end (on the Husquvarna).

    Metzgeri, I found the NcStar website. The 2-7x32 scope has an eye relief of 8.7" to about 10.6". I have been trying to find out how long the eye relief must be. I was surprised to see the NcStar 4x32 has an eye relief of about 14"!!! That ought to be long enough for a gorilla with a pistol. Can you use the 7 power setting and still see the target OK?

    Opps, just re-read Dutchman's post. He says the 4x32 NcStar has to come back further than the Tasco. I thought the NcStar had a really long eye relief. I think I have to learn more about eye relief.

    Sure can. That target was "taken" with the scope set to 7 power. As with any low end scope (especially 32mm objective), you'll loose light with higher power. But, it's still easy enough to see the target.

    I bought my here on the WTS board. However, CDNN and Cheaper than Dirt sell them....well, cheaper than dirt :D.

    Metgeri and others, can't thank you enough. I think I am going for the variable power. It is more useful, and if the target is too dark it will tell me I am out too late or to come in out of the rain.
