    Default Short side rail scope/mount

    Hi everybody,
    I'd like to show you a recent acquisition.
    Undoubtedly original, that one comes out of the woodwork.
    The secured bar occult the maker mark. Without a doubt a dkl.

    Is that a scope you have in your pocket?

    Beautiful Type 3 SSR with DKL and Recoil Bar for a Sauer !!!!! .

    One thing stands out that I find interesting is the Screws that attach the Recoil Bar to Scope Tube , this is first time I have seen this type of Screw Installation . All the ones I have seen to date have the Screw Heads Counter Sunk into Recoil Bar . Example photo attached .

    Very interesting indeed.
    I did not expect the dkl scopes had been produced so early, to be mated with a SSR.
    dkl #1115 is a Sauer HT scope.

    Since the bar is added by a depot, I expect you could find different installation techniques.

    What a great combo! Very nice, first time for me as well to see a dkl+ on a SSR mount. If you decide to part with it (or would trade it with any other scope), please let me know. I still have a ce43 SSR sniper in the L block which I am in need for a mount like yours (see http://www.k98kforum.com/showthread....III-SSR-Sniper).

    Amberg, the dkl+ serials in my opinion do not follow the scope patterns. The LT dkl+ serials I am aware of are in the 2xxx serial range, but you could find both 1xxx as well as 2xxx and 3xxx serials on HT mount as well.

    I was not aware these were added by a depot. Do you have any sources for this?

    It seems obvious to me that the bar is a depot repair - none are exactly the same, the ones I have seen look professionally done, but you see other SSR Sauer mounts without the bar, so no evenly applied. This one for instance, different screws than the one Dave posted. This modification is what I would consider textbook depot repair stuff, done at depot shops.

    Why do you consider it factory done, do you have some source for that?

    I did not state I consider it factory. I only wanted to know whether you have any provenance to attribute it to a depot. There are not many of these scopes and mounts known. Dave has posted a picture of the other one I am aware of - it is mounted on matching numbers ce42 coded K98k rifle in the r block.
