The pin holes in the rear sight block are often located inconsistently as a
result of the original manufacturing process. The two holes are frequently not
parallel to each other and may be out of alignment or skewed. The mount can only
accommodate so much of this misalignment. You should measure the center distances from pin to pin on both sides and check those with the dimensions listed in the SPECIFICATIONS to ensure that the mount will fit properly. A 3mm drill is provided and can be used to clean out and straighten (to some degree) without enlarging the pins holes once the pins are removed. The pin holes for the rear sight block are generally .118"(3.0mm) in diameter and the supplied 3mm bolts have a nominal OD of .115"(2.92mm). This tight fit along with the use of an appropriate liquid thread locker for the screws and nuts, as well as proper tightening of the same should result in no movement of the Mount during normal firing recoil. Occasionally the rear sight block itself, as it sits on the barrel dovetail underneath, can be out of alignment with the bore axis. This condition, if extreme, can adversely effect how the Mount sits.

You can usually find these items at your local hardware or plumbers supply. The application of heat, if done properly, will not cause damage. Keep in mind that you only need to reach the melting point of the solder and that this same temperature was achieved during original construction without adverse effects. Procedure provided in supplied instructions.
As with ANY scope on ANY mount, should it receive an impact (dropped, hit, etc.) it should not be trusted to be accurate. Thus the SEE-THRU feature of our Mount. You can always still use the original iron or open sights if you feel the Mount has been compromised. Design subject to change without prior notice.
Improper installation or use may result in damage to property, severe injury, or loss of life. If for any reason this product does not function properly, discontinue use immediately. Always practice proper SAFETY & ensure an UNLOADED condition before beginning installation.

construction with Black Oxide finish. 100% Lifetime Warranty!
SPECIFICATIONS: This Mount utilizes the barrel pin hole and the pivot pin hole in the rear sight block. The Mount will accommodate a front to back (horizontal, parallel to bore axis) pin center distance of 1.56" (39.6mm) to 1.79" (45.4mm) and allows for an up and down (vertical, perpendicular to bore axis) pin center distance of .18" (4.6mm) to .41" (10.3mm). The Mount is designed to fit over rear sight blocks that measure between .750" (19.05mm) and .787" (20.00mm) wide. The total weight including hardware is 5.4 oz. We have made every reasonable effort to ensure that this product will fit the majority of M38, M44 & T53's. However, due to the large number of these firearms produced over many years around the world, it is impossible for us to allow for all manufacturing variation. Proper tightening of all hardware should result in no movement of the mount during normal firing recoil. If for any reason our Mount does not work with your specific M38, M44 or T53 it can be returned (undamaged) for a full refund.
