please also see video #1 which shows the scout scope mounted on my rifle.

the intent of this video is to answer a lot of FAQs ive been getting from people about my first video.

like I said in the video, i decided to go with the PE scope setup from accumounts instead of the scout setup because i wanted a more authentic restoration. the scout setup has to be the cheapest setup for those on a budget build but still want a more accurate rifle.

Again, DO NOT order the crappy scout mounts that so many online websites sell because they are not solid and they strip out easily. you are much better off buying a pair of 3/8ths dovetail 1" scope rings for $6 a pair off of amazon and mounting them to the exposed dovetails when you remove the rear site.

the scope is an aim scope which you can find by doing a google search or going to tickbitesupply(dot)com. the scope rings need to be a high rise and can be ordered from amazon(dot)com by doing a search for 3/8ths 1" dovetail high mount rings.

the only problem i faced with these dovetail rings and the scout scope was that the scope moved fwd on the barrel with recoil. a modern scope mount like a picatinny rail will have notches to lock the scope rings in place, these small dovetail rings do not. the way to solve this problem is to drill a small hole in the rear dovetail ring and install either a roll pin or cotter key to keep the scope from sliding forward with recoil.

hope this video helps clear things up. please let me know if you have any additional questions.
