Its the S&K "InstaMount" with the proprietary rings not the Weaver rail. Its the lowest mount you can get which allows normal bolt manipulation & stripping. It attaches with 2 cross bolts using the existing rear sight pivot holes & a tapered wedge through the charger bridge. completely reversible & ND/NT fitting.

When I had mine, I put a regular No 4 buttstock on it and it helped a lot with recoil.
 
Too noisy I reckoned.   These days that wouldn't matter!
 
Nice rifle Sham, and very neat scope mount.

Judging by the picture, am I correct in assuming flip up site removed. And that screw utilized? Is the other attachment point the ejector screw on the other side? Also, has anyone had anything to do with Addley Precision non-smith mounts? I believe a Canadian company, which would be nice for cross border shipping hassles. Their products look nice.

Not quite.
Yes you remove the existing rear sight its plunger & spring.
Then you put 2 separate bolts through the open holes & bolt them into threads in the mount. The original isn't threaded despite appearances externally.
Next the big bolt goes down through the rail & bolts into a threaded hole under the bridge in the wedge. This clamps everything together. The ejector screw is untouched.
Tip: Mark the wedge before removing it for installation, every side is different & they all look very similar.

This is actually my Parker-Hale from the No4 Mk2, but the attachment is identical. I think the S&K is a copy of the P-H.

That's a very nice and well made mount, Sham!  Where can they be found?

S&K have a website. I checked them out. Very nice products. I've inquired to them about if they can ship to Canada. I bought a smithless mount from Brownells in the States thru the mail with no issues. Maybe just scopes and mags the US won't send up.

The Parker_Hale is usually available from G.E. Fultons (Bisley) in the U.K. Its a bit longer & heavier.

The S&K is on the website listed above in  the U.S.

ive owned two over the years - a very early BSA that i sold to a fellow collector , and a very late FAZ that i have retained , i had vintage bayonets for each , i did not pay that kind of money for either but id not part with mine for anything like that these days either , if i wanted to sell it , which i wont ,

Received my No5 yesterday! She's a beaut! Nephew knows what to look for. Buttery smooth action and awesome wood. Walnut? Was walnut available on these? Also, received an e-mail from S and K mounts. They ship to Canada no problem. Question for the group, would the S and K be a better mount for my sniper clone than the removable one I have from Brownells currently on it? Seems to be lower profile, but you need to remove the rear site. Thanks!

Its gong to depend on if you think you'll actually use the iron sights or not.

My normal inclination would be no. I usually bring a scopeless backup rifle while hunting, just in case.

Then I'd go with the better scope mount & let the irons go.
I asked the question because for years I had both, sometimes getting both functional was the hardest part of the build. Then it dawned on me I never used the backup irons anyway!
it was truly a DUH! moment.
