    What FAL scope mount is this?

    Has a channel in the top with a single screw mount for the optic, looks similar to an M16icon carry handle type mount.

    Can you post a picture of the channel? The Australianicon Army experimented with a cover to fit the LC-7-40 Ring Sight, which fits a M16icon carry handle, but your cover is much more robust than the ones I have seen for that previously.

    Thanks, it did come from Australiaicon.

    It looks well made - no markings other than that number though, which is 460 C 140 - 5.

    Finish has a slight matt wrinkle finish to it.

    DSA Inc., (USAicon) makes a series of scope mounts, but with Picatinny rail, for the FAL series of rifles with a similar type of locking system. They (DSA) claim it is based on the "South African" design. Could the OP's mount be South African?

    That's exactly what I was thinking. I have a genuine South African made weaver style mount. Very similar construction, thick aluminum walls, and screws tied to internal steel inserts. Cryptic numbers on the side.

    I'm thinking perhaps a NV device?

    I think you'll find this will take a standard AR scope from the past. The very same one that will fit a carry handle...
