I haven't been able to get the website where we buy those one-piece rings. Anyone know what's going on?

Yes. My computer says "Unable to locate" when I try the Scragglepoint site. And the other site isn't even associated with guns. Strange??

Thanks Jeff. I did find it and it's the right one. However, it's 120mm long and the dovetail on this little 220 is only 110mm. I'm trying Rich's suggestion of Loctite in the dovetails and tomorrow morning will tell the tale. If it doesn't work, I'll be looking for the short Accushot base.

Make sure the Loctite sets up for like 2-3 hours before shooting the gun.

Russ Bests suggestion. If you remove the scope, acetone will clean everything up just like new. According to Russ Loctite works best in an anaerobic environment and has low shear strength.

I called Gamo in Ft Lauderdale this morning to have the broken plastic trigger guard replaced and he said he'd replace it with a steel one...when I sent the broken one in...which I did.
I asked about the scope mount. He, too, said I should clean the surfaces and apply blue Loctite. I'm concerned about the shear strength of this stuff and if it doesn't hold when I try it this afternoon, I'll clean everything again and use some super glue in the dovetail.
I also asked him about the 6-48 tapped hole about 1 1/2 inches from the rear of the dovetail, centered, and he had no idea. Mentioned something about a European part.

I tried the blue Loctite route. Let it set 22 hours and tried it. Shot about 50 pellets and neither the scope nor the Stop moved. Looks like a winner, but I'll know for sure tomorrow when I run another 100 pellets through it. I think sharpening the edges of that Stop so it grabs into the dovetail helped a lot.
I want to get rid of this POS 4-32 and I'm not all that sure this setup will hold with the extra weight. Anyone have a BSA 3x9-32 or 40 they want to get rid of??

I also used red Loctite thread lock on the rails of an old deer rifle 30-06 that had bad rails, its 15 years old and the scope has not moved at all.
