Does anyone have experience with this mount?

It is from e-sarcoinc.com - I know nothing about them. Are they reputable?

Excerpt from their site (don't mind their poor spelling and grammar):

"Excellent reproduction. Beautifully machining. Your chance to create an affordable WWII ' 98 Mauser sniper rifle. We previously sold similar mounts for $695.00. These are the improved last version with the top lock screw. Complete with screws & pins. Note: These are proper Military 27mm diamter rings. If you have a 26mm scope, we will include shims at no charge - but ask for shims. This short side rail is the desirable mount for creating a WWII K98 sniper as you do not need to modifey the receiver."

Anyway, as you can see above it says it mounts without having to f with the receiver. My K98 is very nice so I'd like to avoid drilling/tapping the beauty. How exactly does this thing affix to the rifle?

Would love to see pics if anyone has this already.

It must attach to the stock if not the receiver.

See those screws and pins? That is how it mounts. Drilling and tapping is required, at least that is how the Germans installed a short side rail.

Not sure on what planet drilling holes in the receiver does not "modifey the receiver"

Of course you have to drill and tap the receiver, gotta cut the stock too. I don't know how this compares price wise to the various mount setups available from Accumounts.

If I were going to build a replica Mauser sniper, I'd find a rifle that has already been drilled and tapped or otherwise dicked with, not use a nice or original one.

If you're going to drill a Mauser, use turret mounts.
