I don't like to d&t any of my rifles but its yours and you can buy any type of mount that you like. Here are some pics, if you like E-mail me at dano5058@hotmail.com. The mount is all steel no drill or tap and the rear sights stay on if you choose to use them as a true scout set up.

I don't care for the scout style mounting myself. I have thought about using the cantilever style accu-mount sells. I think it would work well with a light fixed power scope. I would love to do a Zark setup but spending $800 on a M48 is hard to justify.

Its a hard sell to spend $800.00 for a mount set up, that could mean losing a few good buys at the gun shows. I don't want a box of rear sights from all diffrent makes and models with springs and pins. I like to use glass for aging eyes, this for me is a good option.

Look up S&K Scopes... it looks to me that they by far have come up with the best solution... albiet a "Scout" setup...

Thanks for all of the replies. I purchased an S&K mount and a BSA Edge 2x7x32 scope.

I'm sure you will get good service from the S&K mount for your 24/47 - know of nothing bad to say about S&K. I was looking into mounts for 24/47 a few weeks ago. It looks to me like the base Accumount and S&K are very similar. They both require removing the original sight and sight spring. Now if you hope to ever have the option of putting these parts back on you must find a way to prevent losing them. I checked out danopa's Brenshok mount and found that it requires removing zero/no parts and is easier to install than the others and once installed the iron sight remains usable as a back up. The Brenshok mount is all steel and after I installed it I found it to be very rigid. Danopa says when correctly installed it does not change zero and no one has ever complained that the mount changes zero.

My final checklist comes out thus:
---- Brenshok -------- Others
------- X ------------------ X -------------- No modification to rifle parts
------- X ------------------ X -------------- Holds zero reliably
------- X ----------------------------------- Lower than competing 24/47 mounts
------- X ----------------------------------- Easy to install
------- X ----------------------------------- Retains original parts against loss
------- X ----------------------------------- Iron sights remain usable as backup

For me it was a no brainer.
