A very close reproduction of the IWS mount for the L42a1 sniper rifle is now being marketed.

The two differences, to distinguish them from originals are the thread of the Allen screws to mount the Stanag mount and the thumb screw heads are machined rather than cast.

You may find them here:

Originals are almost impossible to find and cost at least four times as much today.

Hey Bill,

Do you have a pic of one of these on a rifle? I'd like to see how it looks mounted on the receiver.

The only pics I know of of the mount on a receiver are on the eBay site.

I will pull mine out and make a shot or two this weekend.

About five years ago, I started work on making a repro. The hardest parts are the hand knobs, not impossible, just hard to find.

I found an original out of the blue and dropped the project.

Glad to see a very close duplicate is there for the owners who do not have one.

The elusive IWS scope mount and the impossible to find IWS Scope mounted on the L42a1 receiver.
