I tried a set of 11mm base rings on my .25 Lonestar, and they are obviously too small. I measured the best I could with a set of verniers, and the smallest part was about 11mm and the top part of the dovetail measured 13.5mm. I went on line and it looks like they offer the rings in two sizes. 11mm and 14mm, Does anyone know for sure what the size of the BSA Lonestar dovetail is? With my choices, I would assume I need the 14mm base. Will that one tighten up enough?
Recommendations of rings for a 50mm bell would also be appreciated.
Thanks,
Terry

perfectly. Best I've found yet for BSA PCPs as they are very precise and minimalistic without extra bulging material. My 3-12x44 AO Hawke SR scope fits with about .090 clearance to the barrel. It measures 57mm at the O.D. The eye to scope height is perfect, whereas the BKL mounts will position the scope about .179 higher which is much too high IMO.

for 30mm rings. Let them know the 22RFRH dovetail fits your gun, but you need 30mm. There are some available that will work but I don't know the model number. Their phone: (803) 854-5700
