Question Scope Mounts for Higgins 28 & 29

Hey everyone...

What scope mount will work on the receiver of these models?

The groove is smaller than 3/8s and I can't find a set of rings or bases that will securely mount.

Any suggestions?

I have heard of some of these being undersized before, but I have had a couple of brands on my 29 and have had no problem. I'm pretty sure the last ones I had on it were Burris Signature rings. If you could find BKLs I'm certain they would fit as they will squeeze down for 11mm grooves. BKL has been in transition to another company for some time and don't know if the new owners have ever gotten them in production.

I found a set of rings that are split vertically down the middle would fit on my model 30. Walmart sells a set of Leupold rings that are split down the middle and should work also.

The part number is Leupold 57323 see through .22 rings and cost $11.97. Its the only vertically split Leupold .22 ring Walmart sells.

I can say with relative confidence that the mount that came on the BSA '22 Special' that I bought at Academy this morning isn't going to hold onto my Model 30's dovetail.

I gave up fidgeting with it at the range and had to go irons only.
I might try filing the claws a bit to see if I can get them to fit a little better.
