Malcolm Scope Mount Blocks ...

hello Guys ...

I recently picked up a Malcolm scope with I believe the early type of scope mounts.  Should there be a special type of scope block used with the two screws? ... or does any scope block (assuming the dovetail is correct) work?

Any thoughts and opinions are appreciated ...
Joe

Actually that's a late scope & mounts produced in Auburn, NY, sometime between about 1910 and the beginning of WWII, when the business finally faded away.

Think this dovetail is a bit narrower than Unertl's, etc, but just measure the dimensions and ask Steve Earle to make a pair for you.
