I picked up a Mod. 30 (583.74 Sears & Robuck) JC Higgins a while back. It has a long dovetail on the top of the reciever, that apears to be about 1/4" at the groove. I'm trying to attach some 1" rings, and can't find anything to fit. I bought some 3/8" rings, thinking they would fit, but they are way too big.

Anyone dealt with this?

Thanks

Cowdude, I believe Numrich Gun Parts Corp. has what you're looking for. Click on the link below and scroll down to the "Telescoping" parts that they list. Hope this helps!

The sears Model 30 is listed as a High Standard Pump. Any standard .22 scope and rings will fit the groves on your rifle.

It might be listed as a pump, but it is an auto loader.

I've tried Cheaper T. D., Opticplanet, Midway, Brownells, and have not seen any base that is 1/4" dovetail. Are the standard .22 base 1/4" dovetail?

Also, Steve, I did go to the site you suggested, but they were out of stock. They had no picture so I'm not sure if it was what I was looking for.

Thanks for the input.

Cowdude, I would recommend contacting the people at Kwik-Site. Tell them what you have and they should be able to set you up with the mounts you need.

That it is listed wrong is not unusual, There will never be a 100 per-cent accurate cross over list. However the 583 still makes it an in-house or High
Standard. Sears owned controlling interest in High Standard ( The old High Standard). Try www.brownells.com or www.midwayusa.com. If between those two you can't find what you need, well it may not be obtainable. These two outfits carry almost everything a beginner or professional would ever need. Good luck.

Thanks for the help. I've tried all of the above but the smallest they had was 3/8" Dovetail mounts. This groove must be for a proprietary scope of theirs.

I think I'll try to mill the inside of the 3/8" rings to get them down to 1/4". This should offset the scope by only 1/16" which will be fine.

Again, thanks for all your help.

This was a issue for me as well. What I did was simple. I stripped the ground wire from a short piece of 14/2 romex. Cut 4 5/8 long pieces, straighten them with a hammer. Stuck the 4 into the dovetail grove and tightened down 3/8ths scope rings. Worked like factory and took 5 minutes. Cost nothing and did not damage a thing. Hope this helps someone.
