Bullseye Pistol box scope mount

Hi, I have a Pachmeyer pistol box for Bullesye shooting, and it came with an old scope (unknown make, green textured surface). This scope works great, but I want to use one of the modern adjustable scope mounts (that mounts to the inside of the upper box cover). Unfortunately this scope does not have the standard 5-16" scope mount hole all modern scopes do -- it doesn't have any mounting hole at all!

I know I could make some mickey mouse sort of hose clamp to wrap around it and bolt it down, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a nicer system. To reiterate, what I need to wrap around the scope, then offer a stable way to thread a 5-16/18NC bolt into it so that it clamps the scope to the adjustable mount arm.

Any ideas?

Take your scope to a camera store, they may have an adapter (like the Janco tripod collar mount ring) that will fit it.

An adapter should be easy enough to find as noted by Zippy.
Failing that, though, try Champion's Choice ( for "scope stands and accessories".
