You can order directly from overseas, as there is no restriction on import of rings/ bases/ mounts.

Hi hormese,

> Also if your scope has an 'Objective Lens" OD larger than 32mm - then go for a single piece mount so that it doesn't rest on the barrel thereby subject to getting any vibration transferred to it, as this could affect the settings....
> Here are a few suggestions....

All scopes need a way to connect to the gun. This is done by using a one or two piece scope mount that fit around the scope and are tightened onto a rail on top of the air-gun. I would recommend using a one piece mount for spring air rifles that have a lot of recoil. A one piece mount is sturdier and can withstand the intense recoil of some air rifles.
HIGH MOUNTS:
These rings work best with larger scopes because it allows them to sit higher on the gun, giving the large objective lens room to clear the stock and barrel. In most cases high mounts should be used for scopes with a 40mm objective or higher. Only use high mounts if you have a scope with a big objective. You should always try to mount the scope as low to the top of the rifle as possible as this will increase your accuracy.
MEDIUM MOUNTS:
These rings are slightly smaller than High rings and will work for most any air gun scope with an objective of 40mm or less.
ONE PIECE MOUNTS:
These mounts offer added stability to your scope as these mounts work best with spring-piston brake-barrel air-rifles. These mounts are a bit more expensive but many shooters feel that it is worth it because of the added stability which means better accuracy.
Now that you know the basics, here are some simple suggestions to help you choose a scope, if you do not have one.
Decide what type of shooting you are going to do. For target shooting, a fixed scope (4 x 32) will work just fine unless you want the ability to zoom close up to your target. If so, go with a variable scope, either a 2 x 7 or 3 x 9 or 4 x 12.
Good Luck
Briha

You can order direct from sites like pyramydair or Optics planet for original ones. good quality chinese ones you can order from Aliexpress or DX . com

Hi Abhijeet,

Is there any notification or something that regard that mounts are not restricted and how much is the duty etc? I ordered mounts for my Diana and now they are at postal customs.Got a notice from postal customs.

IIRC the fact that minor parts are excluded from all provisions of the Arms Act is part of the GSR 991 notification from the 1960's - the same one which exempted airguns and laid out the deal wood test. To the best of my knowledge there is no separate notification mentioning individual items by name.

Bought mine on Amazon.com India. Delivered to me in 15 days. And cheap enough.
