Cataract Tool and Optical Company Scopes

The Cataract Tool and Optical Company make three styles of mountings, two side and one center, all of which are adjustable, and are designed for holding the telescope either directly upon the top of the gun or on the left side, as required. The side mountings can be used on any style of rifle; the top or central mountings on single-shot, breech-loading rifles and those which eject on the side. When the side mounting is used, the open or Lyman sights need not be removed; but when the central mounting is used, other sights must be taken off. By the introduction of the ball and socket ring a reliable means for attaching the telescope to the gun has been perfected. Heretofore various imperfect devices used for this purpose were a serious drawback to the employment of the telescope, inasmuch as none of them would admit of universal adjustment without cramping in some parts, and, as a result, the telescope would quickly alter its position with relation to the gun after firing a few times, no matter how tightly the binding screws might be set up. These mountings hold the telescope close to the gun, giving extreme rigidity and wide range of adjustment, together with a compact and symmetrical appearance. In mounting the telescope on the top of barrel, the telescope is made to exceed the length of the gun barrel, irrespective of the power. Thus the forward end of the rifle does not obstruct the view when the telescope is raised for increased ranges. On the top-ejecting and most repeating rifles the telescopes are mounted on left side of gun, and when thus mounted any tube length may be used in keeping with power required, for in elevating the telescope for increased ranges the gun barrel does not, in this instance, come into view. Telescopes mounted in this way are more compact, lighter and more easily adjusted, and admit of the use of regular sights also. Figures 1, 2 and 3 show the telescope mounted on the German Mauser sporting rifle, the Winchester magazine rifle 45-90, and Savage sporting rifle, respectively. Figure 4 shows the rear mounting, designed for holding the telescope upon the side of the rifle as close as possible. It allows for elevation for increased ranges, by means of a micrometer screw graduated to 1-600 of an inch. The front mounting allows for windage adjustment by means of the same form of micrometer screw graduated to 1-600 of an, inch.
