I just placed a one piece scope mount on my HW97K.

The stop pin ,when the mount is not tightened, can stop on the front of the hole wall or the back.
Which is the proper position.. ?

I can't picture what you're describing. Shouldn't you put the stop screw into the groove or hole on the receiver?

In any case, the purpose on most springers with forward facing pistons is to prevent the scope from sliding backwards.

Yes indeed.

Based on newlife's description, I think the specific answer to his question is that the pin, if it is not large enough to fill the hole completely, should rest against the rear of the hole housing. That being said, if you have a proper mount, you can move the pin up/down- the very narrow pointed end is only a guide- the actual threaded rod can be positioned lower than the mount base to go more fully in the hole.

-and some of you need to keep your mind out of the gutter...

Adding some info,,, the pin is not large enough to fill the hole so when the mount is loose enough to move forward or backwards the pin can touch either back or front of the hole.

So it looks like I should seat it so that the pin is touching the back side of the hole.

Thanks , Happy New year..

I think we almost stayed so far out of the gutter we crossed the road into the other!
Context is so important!
afraid to ask for pictures........but they would help me follow for sure.

Isn't the idea to adjust the "pin" until it pushes the scope mount upwards slightly?
Also I would expect that scope mounts only shift on PAL rated springers. Am I wrong?

Say, can I ask another question while we're discussing scope mounts? Why is there such a variation in prices?
I see scope mounts selling for as little as $19 and as much as $50. I suppose it's the quality of the build.

The pin is to prevent lateral movement backward. Good quality scope mounts should not shift on a springer -- PAL-rated or not. Some scope mounts are inexpensive as noted, while others are several times more costly. Usually you get what you pay for. Cheap two piece scope mounts may have only one screw to tighten it to the scope rail. Some one-piece mounts have only three screws, others have four. The bottom line is that mounts vary in quality just as scopes do. You can get a $100 scope or one costing several times that price and they both might have the same magnification. They are usually of very different quality.
