I don't believe I posted my 550's here. Both rifles were used, but not abused, when I got them. I tend to shoot the SG 550-1 the most because I had a bunch of GP 90 ammo. Both were housed in regular Meili cases when I got them.

My Hensoldt ZF scopes have "Christmas Tree" reticles.

I had two Meili cases, but only one key. I looked up Meili's email address and sent them an email asking how I could purchase some extra keys. They emailed back asking for my full mailing address. They never asked for any payment. A week later this is what showed up in my mail.

Who could ask for better customer service? I was impressed.

what is the scope rail on those rifles?

how does it attach at the front of the receiver?

Thanks!

There are no rails on these rifles. They each use a "Jenny" mount with a STANAG base Hensoldt ZF scope attached to the mount

Here is the detail of what a Jenny mount consists of. This detail is missing the rear riser block.

This is the rear riser block.

Here is a Jenny mount with a scope rail attached instead of a scope attached.

The above pictures were shamelessly purloined from Gun Broker.

Very nice, thank you for posting. What is the difference between the dash one and two? When were they made?
The dash one (-1) rifle has a barrel with a 1/10" twist. The dash two (-2) rifle has a barrel with a 1/7" twist. Maybe Tony can tell you definately when each was manufactured.

Thanks for taking the time to put those photos up.

"Jenny Mount". I'm on it... though I assume the price is going to be steep.

@mg34dan -

Am I correct in assuming that the front 'y'-shaped mounting 'lug' just fits over the raised 'lug' at the front of the receiver with the Swiss 'cross' stamped on it?
