    Hello,

    I recently acquired a somewhat beaten up but still much-liked Valmet 412 12 gauge/308, here in Canada. But it is missing the rear iron sight.

    The receiver is, if memory and research serves, about the 168th Valmet 412 manufactured. It is marked with a stylized V, instead of the numerals 412. However the barrel is of later vintage ... a normal 412 (not 412S) so to speak.

    I spent a long time online and finally tracked down a rear sight for it and had it mailed from Sweden. It did not fit and was returned and exchanged. The new one does not fit either. It now lives in a drawer.

    So I started looking for a scope mount. I found a well used and relatively inexpensive scope mount (just what I want) at another Swedish shop. Unfortunately the shop, pleasant as they are to deal with, is not comfortable sending it to Canada. There may be regulatory complexities ... I don't think so, but I realize it is a bit of an unknown.

    Anyway, in the unlikely event that anyone on this great Sako website (helpful to me in the past) has any leads to a Valmet 412 combination gun rear sight or scope mount, please comment.

    The scope mounts are sometimes found on eBay or Gunbroker. You might also try the same sources for a rear sight.

    Thank you, icebear. I had overlooked ebay as a possible source.
