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?

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.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.

Call John Taylor at Taylor Machine (253-445-4073). He specializes in older Winchesters, and can repair your receiver so that it looks factory new.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
