    The Armalon is better than the S&K/Fulton's type in that the scope does not need to be removed to attach or remove the mount to/from the rifle.

    Was it this rifle or another that was recently discussed in another thread? If another then at least the second instance of the "SSSS" over-stamping is noteworthy.

    I can't see a way not to, if a torch is being used. At least you can shield the exposed part of the barrel with a wet rag perhaps. Whatever it does to the paint on the foresight block you will have...

    IIRC they are soldered on, and presumably pinned. If no cross-pin is present, then it should be easy.

    Extraordinary, I had no idea that surnames came that late to any part of Europe.

    Interesting old military pistol/carbine too, though I can be bothered to look up what it is!
