I started calling around, to get a gunsmith to remove rear military sights and install a scope mount on a German Mauser 98,,,, I have been told that they have to have a manufacturing license to modify a military rifle... Or was it always this way??? I never thought it would be a problem getting a 60 year old weapon fitted for a scope. lol I have been priced at about 200 minumum,,, lol lol That seems high. Am I living in the past ????
