Re: mannlicher mounts
Buddy, you ain't gonna find Mannlicher Schoenauer mounts on the Weaver site!
If you stick with a side mount (I would not drill the receiver!) do a search for a Jaeger side mount or a Griffin & Howe side mount. Be ready to spend some cash.
Search the internet until one pops up. Ebay too. Also, contact NECG (New England Custom Gun) and see if they can line you up.
The mounts will not be cheap, especially if you find a G&H mount.
As a last resort, you can drill the receiver and destroy the originality of the gun. This may not matter if the rifle is a shooter grade. S&K mounts can then be had, or old Redfield mounts can be found with some searching. Good luck.
