Sir,

If the rifle has a base or a rail already installed you will attach the scope mounts to that and then fix the scope to the mounts. if the rifle does not have a base or rail you will have to install them. you can buy the base/rail for most imported rifles, and i'm sure a decent gunsmith will be able to make bases for your rifle.

@haiderkn, for how much did you buy your local made 7mm rifle. Pls also mention whether imported ammo can be safely used in such a local made rifle or not.

Dear Haider Khan, Please do not mind it; but unless you use first class mounts (rings and bases) and a good scope it is going to be an exercise in futility. Again putting a nice scope on a desi rifle is getting into a vicious circle. You will end up wasting Time and money on ammunition and end up no where.
I have known people who swear on a contraption they love to call a 500 yard rifle; and according to them have shot Ibex at long ranges with it but they will fall sick when you request them to bring that rifle on a 100 yd range to display its accuracy.
Please get yourself a nice safe and accurate rifle and then look for a scope.

Dear brothers @tipu sultan & skeeter60 the captioned rifle was bought by my father some 25 to 30years back but the rifle is really in good condition and I use it only on forign made ammunition and it works perfectly.
Recently I bought a telescope here in Peshawar and wants to mount it on the rifle. Tommorrow I will try to upload the pictures of the rifle and telescope as well....... then may be some body will help me in this regard.

I imagine your rifle has sentimental value, please keep it in a safe place and don't use it . buy another one. Pictures can never tell if a rifle is safe to fire; but is it accurate ?? I doubt it; any way if you still want to go ahead you will be an experienced rifle man

Haider Khan,

it seems very straight forward from the pictures you will have to loosen the mounts and the tighten them once you have placed them on the section in front of and behind the breech.

Dear Sir Basharat I tried but the slits on the rifle are not fixing in the scope mounts. If you please look at the pictures very closely.

Sir,

You might be able to alter the mounts using a metal file if you are not comfortable doing that then maybe you can find mounts that will fit the base on the rifle. there is also a third option which would be to take it to a gunsmith whos work you are confidant in.

I went to a gunsmith few days back for the installation of scope on remington .22 rifle. He was asking 7000 Rs and 1 month time to complete this job. Should i go for this?

1 month to complete this job? Any particular reason behind so much time?

@ haiderkn: the scope seen in your pic will not get you far, i suggest that you use open sights to do whatever shooting you want to do .... :P

@ Sohail

Sir,

That price only makes sense if your rifle does not have a base/rail on which to attache the scope mounts.

@Basharat thanks for the reply.
Yes! its without base. The gunsmith told me that he have to make a base by himself.
