Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

AC44 G43 w/zf4 scope

This rifle is all matching including the stock. I added the original scope and mount.

I have since repaired the leather strap with a new piece so that it is complete and looks pretty much all original. I didn't loose any of the leather that was original in this process.

I have one of R. Applegate's shooter's kits in this rifle. I shoot it very sparingly and never with the scope, but it is a fine shooting weapon.

That is a great looking rifle, defiantly one to acquire one day.

Do they still make repro scopes and mounts? My K43 is not worthy of an original.

dogboysdad,

I don't think that I've seen any new zf4 mounts but ebay usually has a few. The Meopta (Czech) scope might be found.

edit 7/9/17

Actually, Numerich Gunparts lists a repo mount at $119 and a Meopta scope with can for $399. If you called them they my not actually have these but in any case they come up in a search.
