Scope mount or rings for 8.5mm rail.

Recommended Posts

I pulled out my dad's old .22 rifle that I learned on as a kid which was produced by High standard for Sears MANY years ago. (I'm 50 so it's OLD like me).  The problem is that all 3/8" mounts are too large as they max out just prior to actually contacting the rail itself. 

I measured the rail and it's 8.5mm wide but for the life of me I can't seem to find any 1" mounts for a rail system that wide.

I have a request into Brownells to see if they have anything that will fit.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Carefully file off some of the metal under the clamp ?

You will need to keep the file level and straight.

The usual rule is remove about half of what you think you need to and check it.

If it does not fit yet, remove half of what you think you need to and check it.

This will keep you from removing too much.

Unfortunately I'm trying to keep the scope pretty much centered on the rife to maximize adjustments let to right as well as trying to keep the line of sight going straight down the barrel for accuracy.  Now if I could find a set of rings that I could file off both sides that would work that would be perfect but from what I've found so far it would take a milling machine to take off the material as they are recessed which of course may be one of my last options.
