I used Leupold custom steel mounts with Leupold VXII 3-8x43 ............ :D

The mounts cost me around USD 60 and the Scope around USD 320 ......

Purpose is hunting. The mounts on the internet say low, high and medium. I don't know the difference.

Mount heights depend mostly on the scope you intend to use, bigger the objective lense higher the mount. Objective lense is mentioned as last digit of the scope spec like "3-9x44" 3-9 will be maginification range & 44 the size (diameter) of objective lense (front most part of the scope from where light enters in).

These refer to the how high the line of sight of the scope is in relation to your rifle bore.

An ideal mounting system secures your optical device to your firearm as low as comfortably possible, with the fewest parts necessary. More parts equal more chances for something to go wrong. Solid steel mounts are the strongest, but in many cases, aluminum will serve perfectly well. See through rings are notoriously weak, and points of impact change from bumps or carrying are common. With a good scope with low enough minimum magnification; your iron sights will never be used.

My advice is to go for a scope with around 40-45mm objective lens with medium mounts.3-9 power.Better still if you can find a 1-8 power scope

I use a Bushnell Trophy 3-9x40 was a gift from a friend in Germany but i think retail is sub $200.

Post pics of you rifle. You need to determine which bases will fit your rifle. I think that earlier Brno rifles had mauser type receiver but later models have rails machined on receiver. So there will be different set of bases for each model.

As said earlier, try to mount the scope as low as possible.
