    The size seems to match.

    Is it close to the correct one after I remove the diopter ?

    I think the scope mount should be cover the long slot of the dioptric adjustment too.

    What do you think ?

    It´s great.

    The slot from the additional windage ring WILL be covered by the mounts :)

    Agreed.

    My scope also had the diopter on it. When it was removed, the cradle rings covered the slot.

    Was that the one that was on eBay last week? I was watching that and decided to let it go.

    Thank you very much for that :p

    I think $68 including shipping to Germany isn`t too much or ?

    Unscrew it...simply grap it with two fingers, turning it to the left ;)

    Just checked my scope and it came apart VERY easy.

    Well, considering that I paid $500 for the one that went on my gun 3 (or was it 4) years ago, you did good.

    Without a clear frontal shot of either the ANH or Sitting Target brackets, I had to rely on the grainy, high-contrast, shadow-ridden perspective shots, and through trial and error matched up the points in the CAD model, like in these comparisons, three of over a dozen made throughout the project. Doing all those iterations until I was confident enough to persuade MR it was right was a pain in the royal *, but I loved every minute of it. :D

    Unfortunately, I only have some second-hand measurements of a real HW scope, and those were taken off a first-generation casting of one. That's good if I'd be satisfied with a 90% accurate static interpretation, but you know me, guys - I'd only be interested in replicating the scope as a 100% accurate, mechanically - if not optically - functional replica.

    If I can get my hands on a real scope, I'd be able to start right away, unfortunately that hasn't happened yet. Even MR never got its hands on a real scope and had to rely on the second-hand measurements I provided them (the one in the CAD assembly above is a VERY simplified rep).

    I figured until an accurate bracket set is done, there's no real rush to do the scope, but if anyone wants to lend me theirs for a few days so I can take calipers to it, they'd get a free replica if and when I get around to making them, so spread the word, people. :D
