Help me pick a rail

Please can you guys/girls help me pick which rail would be best suited to fit a scope to my mk2 international.

I've been perusing this site for a week now and each night I come to a different conclusion!!!!

Local (to me) supplier: www.ant-supplies.UK

You need the Brownells dovetail blank. Just needs four holes drilled and counterbored to locate in the four holes already in your barrel, presently holding the dovetail blocks that were fitted to take the Unertl type scopes. By far the best way to fit a modern scope to your International and does not interfere with the PH aperture sights if you want to remove the scope and use apertures. Tony

Brownells postage, I have heard, is quite expensive.

Do you have a link to the appropriate brownells rail so I may see if ANT has a similar product.

Many thanks

There are recent threads here showing different mounts. I believe Stu makes the nicest and ships internationally all the time.

EGW makes a mount (Winchester 52) that also screws right on but I don't know about their shipping policy...Tom

Noodle,
Thanks for posting the Ant link; many interesting mounts and rings. I'd wager that there would be shipping problems for us, though. Wonder if any of those rings would fit a Herter's U9 (BSA Monarch) dovetail?
Y

@thomasconnor, does that EGW 52 rail fit an International without having to drill additional holes?

I've been chatting with Ant over the past week.... just waiting on a response to see if he does something along the lines of the brownells blank.

Noodle, if you have no luck over there, I have a Brownells rail blank you can have for the cost of postage. I used to drill and counterbore the holes to the correct spacing but unfortunately had to get rid of my milling machine as I have three ATVs. and a Corvette in the garage and didn't have the space for it anymore. A few of the guys on RFC have my rails fitted and I think they were happy with them. PM me if you need it, Tony. ps, you should be able to find a local machine shop to put the holes in the rail for you.

I put a BKL cantilever mount on the existing scope block of my MKV. Haven't been to the range yet, but it appears solid.

There are what looks like a choice of 2 different rails at brownells (both contoured)..... what's the difference between the 2?

When I did my MK II, I just bought an aluminum rail blank off of Ebay and drilled it. They come usually either in flat or rounded bottom. Something like $15.00 shipped. Anodizing on the one I got was great. Eventually sold my MK II so I can't provide a picture of the end result. If I could have gotten one in blued steel, I would have gone that route instead.
