    K98 S&K scout instamount

    Hello there - I bought a New s&K scout mount for K98icon from a member here. Tried it on both my Russianicon Capture as well as my Yugoicon 98 , mounting Vortex Hunter low rings and a Hi-Lux scout scope....cannot boresight it, it aligns too high vs bore (i.e. shooting low) even with elevation setting all the way. Has anybody experienced anything similar? Could it be that the mount base - or the scope - is defective? Thank you!

    Thanks - that maybe the issue - I am trying at 50yds - will try at 100yds and see what happens. Indeed I mounted the scope thinking of shooting 200yds...

    Tried boresighting at 100 yds, same story ... scope aims too high vs. point of impact. I believe the mount sits too high on the front of rear sight base, possibly the screw holes are out of spec. I emailed S&K , letís see what they say.

    S&K replied promptly to my email, asked to send back mount together with target showing how far off the scope is from POI at 100 yds, and they will adjust it... canít complain...
