    Frustrated......Zastava M70 and mounts

    Hi

    New here and looking forward to interaction from everyone.

    I just bought a new Zastava M70 chambered in 7mm REM MAG and I am loosing it with myself right now trying to find a scope mounting system for the gun

    I decided to buy a Votex Diamondback scope 4-12 X 40 but no one can seem to assist with mounts for the gun

    Went to Bass Pro.....idiots there

    Cabellas at least put an effort to help me and sold me Leupold STD steel mounts for a Mauser 98. (Suppose to fit), but the screw hold are just a tiny bit off.....

    Can anyone direct me ????

    Thank you

    Mike

    It doesn't matter whether the gun they have is illegal or not they don't care about laws in the first place. You could make every gun illegal and you would still have these guys armed to the teeth it's not laws against guns we need laws against criminals !

    I would have thought that the '98 mounts would have been right.
    How many of the holes don't line up?
    It's entirely possible that the rifle was incorrectly drilled, not likely, but possible.
    If one mount lines up and the other has one hole out half a hole, I'd suspect the rifle.

    Actually we discovered that in fact the gun must have been drilled wrong. The gun store ended up using a Winchester 98 base and all things are fine now.

    They put medium height rings on, I am going back and getting high ones as this is a mistake.

    Thank you all for the direction....loving this site

    The Medium rings should be high enough for a 40mm front lens. You may want to re-think 12X for a 7mm Mag though.
    However, if you bought the rifle new, you should take it back for warrantee replacement.
