    Bruce,
    
    The Simex (spelling?) Japanese scope uses the same mount, I believe, as
    a Tamaya.  This is the fork you place under a thumbscrew, with a ridge
    running down one side, to keep it in line.  Many Simex come with
    inverting scopes with two parallel wires.  I've got one, of possibly a
    slightly different brand, that includes a 12x inverting scope and a
    7x30 prism scope that I'm planning on selling.
