I've looked at those "kits" where you "cut off" the bolt handles, drill and tap into the bolts and screw another handle to them...and the scope mounts...SHEESH! On ebay, I found the real scopes and mounts...at a whopping $500-$600 each! YIKES! I am going to modify all 3 of mine, by stripping the bolt assy's, then heating up the bolt tangs and bending them into the proper angles. Then I can cut the ball ends away and add additional metal to the original, and then I can re-weld the ball ends back into place. As for those scope mounts, I have heard HORROR stories! 2-3 shots and off the scope goes! No way am I going to try to use the rear sight pin to hold a scope down! I'll take my rifles to friend with a mill and I'll cut away the stocks, just as the original "sniper versions" had, and put on an angular plate. 3 bolts into the receiver will hold it in place over the bolt. It may not be original by any means, but for what they are asking for a "kit" is ludicrous and they are pretty sad! I can attach a "rail" on top of the angle for securing a large scope with no worries about it flopping around. It may not be great, but it'll be a lot more secure than what I have seen so far! Now I only have to decide if I want to use stainless, black iron, or aluminum, for the angle. For the bolt handle extensions, I can use any good quality 3/8 inch diameter steel, cold rolled being preferred.
