Odd use for a pivot mount base.

Indeed

True it is really odd. But it does allow me to use the safety and magazine cut-off with no issues. Though I think I might go for what Local has on his or Butler's I like things centered. But it does give a strange unique quality to the rifle and in the Willamette valley and surrounding area's 100 yards is about what everybody does for max.

The additional photos make it clear that 'spectrum' has a Weaver top-mount base, (with pivot-rings), that has been improvised into a side-mount.

I wonder if the original 'user' aimed with his Left Eye, while shooting Right-Handed?

The off-set is much greater with this rig, than with the Weaver Side-Mounts, made for U.S. Krag receivers.

'Spectrum' is correct about the Ocular Lens Housing, of a regular side-mounted scope, interfering with operation of an unaltered Krag safety-lever. The cut-off lever, however, is not obstructed.

(IMHO - A Weaver No. 2 side-mount base will fit his hole spacing).

It is nteresting how the scope is rotated 90 degrees so that elevation knob becomes windage and windage knob becomes elevation.

I do that with all my scope mounted Krags, less interference for ejection
