Is 3/8" dovetail the same as weaver?

A scope comes with 3/8" dovetail rings and I'm wondering if it will fit a weaver base.

Depends on the base and some have dual application for the 1" & 3/8" of what is called the .22 base. Then there are those that are specific to the either. For example, you will find the dual base supplied with the Ruger 10/22's. ...

Be Safe !!!

No. 3/8 means it is for the grooves found on .22s.

I put weaver #24 bases on my Savage Mk II. Can anybody suggest a good .22LR scope and weaver rings? Budget no more than 150 dollars.

Since .22's don't recoil, most any weaver-style rings will work for you. As to a .22 scope, take a look at Nikon's new BDC reticle rimfire scope. It looks pretty sweet.
