I came across a decent Model 300 Scope today at an antique shop.
It was missing the rubber eye cup and all it’s mounting hardware.
It was priced at $60.
Is that a good buy or was it overpriced?
I was unsure if I could find the mounting hardware however, I think I remember someone on the forum who made the replacement mounting hardware.
I have used a wheel brake cylinder rubber cup before for an eyepiece so that part is covered.
The questions are was it priced right and where can I find mounting hardware?
Thanks

Can't help with mounting hardware but remember posting years ago about using a brake cylinder boot turned inside out for an eye piece

Hi Rick. I know someone on this forum knows someone else who makes reproductions of the rear mounting post, but I don't recall any information on the front 'claw' post. If you go looking for one here is a photo of the complete set (along with the two rubber stabilizers). All the front mounts seem to have the two washers, both of which go under the head of the bolt. [Which may in fact be an old Model 25 take down screw].


I never could find the brake boot part for a rubber eye cup, but I did find this substitute which fit well. 
(I later cut off the firewall part with a razor knife), but it fit and looked OK as originally purchased.




I ordered this from:

CE Auto Electric Supply

I ordered what they call Firewall Grommets, SKU: GROM2

https://ceautoelectricsupply.com/product/firewall-grommets/

 It was $3.15 plus $7.13 shipping.

Good luck with your project, and PS--you got a good deal there.

Thanks for the photos and response.
I have a Red Ryder with the mounted 300 scope and may attempt to replicate those mounts.
Is the Red Ryder mounts the same as the model 25 mounts?
I plan to put it on a 25 if I can get the mounts.
I would prefer original however, the chances of finding an original mount is pretty slim.
Thanks for the reply.
