looks good! Did you have to enlarge the scope rings for that scope? or can you still fit the original?
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Ah Ha!
you are following the trail I laid some time back.
I dislike the Mk32 a lot, but likes the small, light handy concept.
I put a 4X Hensoldt on there.
Eye relief was terrible.
I went with a couple of 2~8X32s, but went up to a 3~9X 40 & then just gave up & put The ART-3 on there!

Geeze your rug looks just like mine, I kicked mine around a few times, but couldn`t find the rifle.......LOL

Rifle looks awesome.
I have Pecar Berlin 4x on my swede, #1 reticle, love that scope, I don`t shoot much past 100yrd as the post pretty much covers an entire target at 200yrds.
But this is what those guys dealt with back then and I find it both challenging and fun to use the old equip`t, its tough to be consistent with that old scope, but being designed for center of mass hits, I`m sure it would work fine out to 300+ yrds.
shoot em if you got em

I did like the challenges presented with using  the No32 scope but when I got the 7.62mm barrel installed I made the executive decision to forego the challenges. I intend to shoot this rifle as accurately as possible.  Once I have it zeroed @ 100 yards for the ammunition I use, the built in bullet drop compensator will assist with me getting shots on target out to 500 yards.
Challenges averted...
