Winchester Model 190 - Scope mount?

I have a Winchester Model 190 .22 tube feed rifle.
At one time I had a tasco scope mounted to it, but that scope is long gone.
I would like to add another scope to it, but I do not know what I should get and what the mount type is called.
I will describe what I had and how it mounted to the gun and hopefully someone will tell what it is called.
The scope I had was a cheap Tasco with two attachments, each having a screw to tighten it to the gun.
The gun had two groves on the top and the scope would slide into the grooves. The screws would tighten the mounts to the gun.
If I knew what they were called, I would know what I had to get.

I am also curious to know the years this gun may have been produced.
Thanks,
D

I have found some pictures on the net.
They show the rifle I am talking about as well as the type of scope I would like to mount on it.
Please help me describe it.
Thanks,
D.

The Model 190 was produced in the late Sixties and early Seventies. The receiver, like almost all rimfires of that period, was grooved for a tip-off mount. Any rimfire scope you purchase will come with the correct mounts.
