It does allow fitting to a big bore. I have that very setup on my 500j. Trying it for the first time Saturday.
Interesting. Please let us know how it goes.
Hi Thomas, just wondering how the HMS mount and Docter 3 went on the 500 Jeffrey.
I am looking for a sight for my R8 PH 500 Jeffrey and am a bit torn between the Doctor 3, Blaser RD17, or maybe the Aimpoint H2.
I have used the single foot HMS and Docter 3 on my 9.3 for years and am very impressed with it.
I think the Doctor really shines under 50 metres when the bush is thick. Perfect for walking dry creek beds hunting pigs when the action is fast and close.

How has the 4 feet HMS mount been for you, any issues at all ?
Allan
No issues at all. Very secure and works as intended. The mounts are very high quality. I would highly recommend.

Just on a side note. I bought the mount through Optics Trade (I'm in Melbourne) and it took four days and it was in my pocket. Can't get better than that.

Well, I just received my HMS Henneberger mount for my Docter 3 sight. What an impressive mount it is, very good quality steel and looks extremely well made. The attachment feet are basically the same as a Blaser saddle mount, except the tension is adjusted by a torx screwdriver instead of a small flat blade. Mounting height is extremely low and will be a perfect addition to my PH 500 Jeffrey.

Thankyou Titanium Gunworks and Klaus.
Very pleased so far. :clap:

I’m just going to side track this thread in a few ways.

First of all once you mount something bigger than a 1-4x on a H&H or larger you really start testing the scope mount. I actually have more confidence in the old prism mount thanks to the vertical screws than the SR mount.

Of course it then transmits the shock to the scope and rattles the erector tube :doh:

For heavy recoil and rapid fire so far the H2 in the Blaser Mount is holding up well and holding its own in BGRC comps.

So hijack number 2; is the low Doctor mount available for the M03 platform? To mount a Doctor or Aimpoint on those rifles it seems you need a saddle mount, rail and then the sight - about 2.5 inches above the bore :doh: :doh:

For those who may have an interest in the Henneberger HMS Sumo mounts, in this case for a Swarovski SR rail, I have finally been able to find a better image of this mount showing the guts of the mount.

This interested me quite a bit as I'm searching for that economically viable alternative to the original Blaser mount.
The image shows the serrations quite nicely.
Looks like a very well made mount. :think: :think:

Yes, it is indeed a better alternative then the Blaser original mount:

Thanks for finding the pic! Now we know what it looks like and it looks pretty good.
