Here's a very unusual item that I picked up at a gun show a few years ago. It's an adapter set to mount a German rail mount scope to a Sako. It has no markings on it whatsoever. I am inclined to think it was made by a small manufacturing shop in Finland or Germany in the 1950's or so, but that is a guess. Or perhaps it is a one-off piece made by a gunsmith; it kind of looks like it might have been made partially by cutting up a set of Weaver mounts. It's a clever design - the thumbscrews on one side clamp it to the Sako dovetail; the ones on the other side clamp it to the rail. There's a little tab on the rear base that flips down to serve the function of the alignment tab on a Sako rear base. I've tested it for fit to a rail mount scope and it looks like it would work, but I haven't actually mounted a scope to a rifle with it. Have any of you ever seen such a thing before, and do you have any information as to when, where, and by whom it might have been made?
