Evolution of "tip off" mounting

I always thought "tip off" mounting was an American idea starting in the 1960's. Yet, pre war Mauser 22 rifles have the grooves. I suppose this was used in Europe much earlier than in the US?

From the 1926 Mauser catalog, the grooves could be used for scope or diopter sight mounting. They possibly predate this catalog,

Well...that answers that! I guess the Germans were ahead of us for some time on the
"tip off" mount issue.

Thank You Sir!

My MS420 has a fairly early S/N I think and is not grooved for scope mounts. I have the Speed book but haven't really spent much time trying to nail down the year made, but I believe it was mid 1920's. The MM410B I got from Bobcat21 has the grooved receiver. I think it was made in the late 1930's. I really need to check the book one of these days.

The Brno Model 1 of 1945 (which was a major modification of the Mauser KKW) also had tip off grooves.
