    Never owned one myself but they come with three different mounts I think. Not sure how to even sight in one of these things, at night maybe.

    Thinking maybe of getting one for an FAL tho.

    checking around the net it would seem that one of the mounts is a claw mount for the G-3 series rifles I assume the HK91/93 models but I believe its calibrated for 308 there is a mount that comes with the NVD for picatinny rails I assume thats its similar to the old weaver style I assume cause I don't know for sure, the other two mounts are for the MG-3 mg or MG42 post war variant and the panzerfaust ( bazooka) so they are useless to me
    I do believe these can be fitted to fal with rails

    Actually I have a FAL dust cover with the integrated rail. Locks up solid so that's what I would use. I have everything I need. Still thinking on it. Would be cool tho.

    I am glad Iwrote the word assumed several times in the above post cause I was not sure if I was correct and when I am mistaken well I say so

    ok the mounts that this come with are not adaptable for the picatinny rails and yes the mounts that are supplied with the scope are proper, this setup requires a Arms # 7 mount MSRP $48

    of course the claw mount for the g-3 is completely correct, funny these same mounts as sold with these scopes sell for over $250.00 ( these are H&K mounts not cheap aftermarket mounts

    still looking for a manual or PDF of one

    Mine locked up tight on my G3, optic is super clear at 200+ yds.

    Well worth the money. I may buy another.

    This is a VERY heavy duty scope . Well made, and easy to set the scope on target.
    A little on the bulky side, but for the money it's a good buy. I know what most of the
    stuff on the scope is for, but it would be nice if a manual could be had.
    A question was asked of how to set the scope. In daylight, install the batters, leave the front cover on, turn on. You will see your sight, and will be able to set and adjust sights.
    The adjustments are on the left side, under little green rubber covers. The one for up & down will say {H] Right and left will say [S]
    Your in my Mind, and in my Sights

    thank you for the kind words. I am a little busy, as I posted on the weaponsguild site. I took this scope out to the range but I didn't take the manual. On the H&K site one of the guys said to use the top dot for aiming, well its the second two dots used for aiming. Since it was raining in eastern Pa, I could not do long distance. but the scope worked fine. Once I can get back out and use the scope at the proper calibrated distance then I can comment further
    as far as translating the manual
    due to the graphic's this is a tall order, its not the translation per se, its the translations fitted with the graphic's. I will attempt this after hurricane Irene blows over
    and again its for all, upon request

    here's a pic the zeiss is mounted on my ar-15 carbine with a Arms # 7 stanag to weaver (pitcantiny) mount sitting on a handle mount, little heavy for the carbine
