EAW Scope Mounts

Torsten: HELP! I am considering acquiring an SSG PII. I have spoken to NECG and have
been told that EAW does not make a set of rings that are tapered.

To all.
Can one of you tell me about E.A.W. mounts? I have seen them mentioned from time to
time. Both times they are used on Mauser K-98 actions. The last time as a short side rail

To Jack, re. EAW scopemounts.

EAW is Germany's and Europe's largest mountmaker. Their range is very large, much
larger than Leupolds.

Their standard mount is a QD-mount similar to Leupold STD but with a QD mechanism in
the rear base. The front base is adjustable for wear. Rings in several heights. The high
rings has elevationadjustment. An interesting variation is the frontring that goes on the
objectivebell on the scope with the front base mounted extreme forward, usually on the
barrel. The extended distance between the bases make QD-mounts more accurate. No
front overhang on the scope makes it less vulnerable when bumping into things.

EAW makes the classic german 4-clawmounts for rifles, doublerifles, drillings,etc. VERY

Then they make the classic siderailmount for M98K as seen on WW2 sniperrifles. This
mount is very good with exellent QD-performance. All steel with W&E-adjustments,
26mm/1" or 30mm rings. Use a relatively short and leight scope to avoid vibrations. They
also make this mount with a base for the M1 Carabine. With the scope in a hard case and a
standard M98K you can go to hell and return with a zeroed rifle. Open sights are ready for
use all the time.

Get the EAW catalog. It's a lot of reading.

To Jack, re. EAW.

I think their US address is listed in Gun Digest.

A correction on the highring-elevation. The front ring pivots, elevation idone by different
rear-(high)ring heights. No need for shimming, milling on bases,etc.
