ERNST APEL OFF SET SIDE MOUNT.
Unfortunately only the rear mount is available and is to fit rifles such as the Steyr 1906 and 1908 etc. where the rear base is mounted to the side of the action as these rifles have no rear bridge etc. A suitable matching front ring will be supplied with the mount to complete the pair so anyone with a rifle and bases but no actual rings these are for you (provided you require inch / 26mm tube diameter). Fully windage adjustable and Quick Detachable with return to zero accuracy.
Alternatively anyone with an existing full set up requiring a replacement scope to move from stalking to say driven / running game then these are ideal for you.
These and other small items of equipment detailed on the web site can range from easy to just about impossible to find.
BEFORE you fall over from the ‘shock’ PLEASE bear in mind the time it takes to source, clean, possibly repair or replace parts, prepare, label, photograph down load, cut, crop and make good images as well as everything else involved to actually detail them here for sale.
Prices generally go nowhere even close to covering this time, effort and expense (which is the reason you will see very few, if any, other dealers bothering with things like this).
I often say there are far too many places selling guns and not enough GUN SHOPS and I stand by that statement. The likes of listing things like this should convey I do this for the love of the sport and as a service to customers and DO expect to see a small return for the effort.
Prices not only reflect the condition of each item, good or not so good (in the odd case), but also the rarity as well as the WORK involved. I consider them all excellent value for what they are. If you do not then please don’t waste either of our time.
All I ask is that you bear these few factors in mind before asking about ‘best prices’ or discounts etc.
My ‘BEST’ prices would be PLUS an additional £200 so think before you ask!
Also please note that when I detail a measurement they are as close I can reasonably tell. Dovetails are measured at their WIDEST point on the base.
Last point to make is that it actually makes a lot more sense to invest in QUALITY scope mounts. If you have just spent a small fortune on a good scope you should also set it up to perform as best as is possible whilst at the same time not damage it. ALWAYS makes me smile but also ‘cry’ to see people with scopes costing well in excess of £1000 and nasty marks left to the tubes from nasty, cheap, ill-fitting mounts. My advice?…… DO NOT penny pinch on your mounts.
Finally, YES, you may well find the same or similar elsewhere. By all means if they offer a saving then purchase there but bear in mind what is listed is what IS AVAILABLE, ready to be sent and used to get your rifle set up and you shooting. We can all wait forever for the bargain to turn up on Ebay or somewhere.
