Short answer ---- it's all explained and fixed.

Sorry, obviously there was a misunderstanding!

Suggest you re-assess/re-read the advice gentleman the told you. It wasn't specific to your situation, but encompassed it. It was, as I read it, a philosophical rejoinder - nothing more, nothing less.

If you don’t want advice or opinions don’t ask questions.

You're reformed?

I thought that you were the same old Larry Root that you've always been on this site, regardiess of what you are calling yourself at the time. How many user names have you had on this site? 50? 100? Anybody who changes their user name as often as you do would seem to be trying to hide your true identity/reputation. I'm kinda surprised that Rick hasn't found your latest user name and converted your UpThePole posts to Oldman1942 posts.

Anybody interacting with Larry, regardless of how reformed he is or what he is currently calling himself, should read jwgibson's thread from 2014 regarding his interaction with Larry and judge for themselves.

If you are going to cop an attitude like that then maybe this really isn't the best place for you. But if you want to participate with a group of guys who are far more knowledgeable on this subject than you or I will ever be and in an evironment interested in the historic perspective (after all this forum is called Savage Collectors for a reason) then by all means do pull up a stump and stick around, you might learn more than you expected. But also learn to practice a little humility, diplomacy and civility in your approach to others. And to be clear, unlike before this time I am taking the liberty to tell you what to do. The world has way to many flamers and I don't think anyone is coming here looking for yet another bad attitude. And if you are Larry, then sadly there's nothing to say. Some broke can't be fixed. Best of luck!

As I said, I found the correct mount, thanks to members, I have the correct scope.

I'm sure it will be a nice period piece shooter.

I anyone wishes to communicate, my email is on my profile page.

Thanks to those who helped solve mystery.

Glad everything went well and I look forward to reading your future posts. Have a good Sunday and I will see you around the Campfire.

Need info. Thanks.

The holes are only ugly if you judge them by the aesthetics of today. You bought a period rifle with period features. Nobody set out to destroy its future desirability when they mounted the scope. In fact it could be argued they were forward thinking in mounting glass on a rifle during a tiime when open and peep sights ruled the day. Those holes would not bother me at all and here's an alterntive solution. There is a replica Wever 330 being made for the "sniper" guys who are into milsurp. I suspect the optics in the replicas are far better than what the originals had. You could always put a Weaver side mount back on that 99 and go with a modern replica of the 330. And that would look like the hot setup that 99 was back when the holes were drilled.

That’s one of the best discriptions of how I feel about the Noske side mount on my 1928 K. People said what A Hole put a side mount on an engraved rifle? Even back then? It came out of big cattle country. I like to think the guy wasn’t an A Hole. I think he was a wealthy rancher that ordered up the finest rifle available at the time, an engraved K, special wood, take down, 300S, then he put one of the top shelf scopes of the day on it. I bet none of the ranch hands second guessed what he did? I bet none of his wealthy friends second guessed him either.

And now for the rest of the story.

Thanks to Lightfoot I have a T7 mount. Put it together with my Litscherts converted J 2.5 and it turned out well.

Not everyone's cup of T but fits the period.

Thanks for all the help from fellow Savage lovers !
