Pre War model 70

My model 70 has been drilled and tapped for side mounts and top mounts however, I cannot find any mounts that will fit. I have tried Weaver and Williams side mounts; Leupold, Burris and Redfield one piece and two piece top mounts. I suppose I need a gunsmith to fix this, Does anyone have a recomendation?
Thanks,
Geo.

Before you have more holes drilled in the rifle, get a blank base and have that drilled according to the hole pattern on your rifle.
