    Default Reproduction ZF4 scope question

    Does anyone have any experience with the reproduction scope and mount, sold by Waffenmeister? I would like to get a scope for my G43 but $500+ is a lot to spend, to find out if it's a pos or not.

    I don’t know about their products but most reproduction mounts, when bought new, need a little work with a file to coerce them to fit correctly. I suspect the scope you are referring to is a new repro and probably from Meopta or similar and should be fine considering the cost. Others will chime in on the scope but I have no experience with the “new” zf4s but I do with repro mounts and every one has needed to be filed a bit to fit properly. It’s not hard to do— you usually just have the file the internal dovetail of the mount to fit. Easy!

    Rather than using a file to make them fit I have taken two of my repro mounts apart and use the wedge of a chisel to carefully open up the slot,if done gently it won't leave a mark.

    His repro mounts for the ZF4 generally fit well. 9/10 original rails, trust me...I've tried. Only has them with fake Waa 214. Bands are nice, screws for the dowels slightly off and one friend broke a screw trying to tighten it too much.
    Reasonable and affordable 'repro' IMHO.

    Don't know about the scopes.

    I'm planning on getting a mount with scope at some point as well. I'm not aware of many options of manufacturers to choose from. I kind of feel like it might be one of those read the reviews types of situations.
