Here are a couple of photos of my recently done Danish Krag carbine with a scout scope mount.  I removed the rear sight ladder and mounted the scope rail directly to the sight base using the pin that originally held the sight ladder.

I haven't fired it yet.  Can't wait to get it out to the range.  Hopefully get it sighted in to use for deer this fall.

Tom

I like the nice eye relief you have with the scope mounted a little forward. Looks very nice.

Hi Tom,

Neat way to adapt the original rear sight to allow mounting of a scope!

Curious, are you able to maintain a cheek-weld on your stock comb while looking through your scope?

Thanks Whig.  Smiley     Local Boy, I definitely have my head a bit higher to see through the scope, but still have my cheek on the stock comb.  It is lower cheek, maybe lower jaw, but still solid contact.
