The hole in the center of the rear base is used for a screw to hold a flat tension spring in place, for the scope base.For whatever reason the germans decided this had to be there.

Are you trying to lighten the rifle by reducing weight?

No, the replica mounts I have does not have screw or spring. And no I'm not trying to pass anything replica off as original. When I grew up a local man had a turret mounted K98 he brought back and would do a show and tell for us kids. Which lead the old man down on the corner to do his show and tell with his WW 1 gew 98. They both had all kinda stuff they brought back. Ever since I've wanted a turrent top K98. Now that I have the extra cash I'm going to build one.
