This has been hard to find, (: a pair of 30mm rings or one piece mounts, or an adapter that converts it to weaver to fit these BSA scope rails. I know BKL has one for 1 inch scope tubes. Any idea if anyone makes 30mm rings or scope mounts that would fit these 14mm dovetail bases?

Your scope will be sky high unless there are some super low profile weaver rings that you could get.

Check out this adjustable mount, it may fit centered on a 14mm dovetail, and is for a 30mm scope tube.

I had regular BKL 267 1" single straps and they fit the dovetail just fine. Screwing the mounting screw in from the opposite side to spread the mount was hardly needed (maybe 1/4 of a turn from initial contact). As long as the dovetail extends to the end of the receiver so that you can slide them on, they should fit fine.

That is my main concern with BKL products..

What I did for now is flipped 180 degrees one side of the leapers one piece mount lip it also fits the rail now. But the scope stop pin won't line up anyway So I removed it, and tightened the one piece mount screws real tight. Hopefully I won't get any scope creep backward for now till I find something.

Will most likely go with the BKL's.. as it seems there is not that much available.

I guess I'd just make sure that everything mates well with that piece flipped. I think I've tried the same thing on another setup in the past and it just didnt look right to me. The edge that normally clamps on the ring itself is now clamping your dovetail, correct? I remember with the mount I did that with, that edge did not mesh well with the dovetail (it was too thick) so I didn't even crank it down in fear of messing up my rail.

I checked now it actually lines up perfect

Airgun manufacturers should all just switch to Weaver scope rails and make things easier for us so we can use some nice quick detach mounts and rings..

Why would BSA use a 14mm scope rail beats me

You could call Talley, I am sure they would have something.

I didn't know that they made any 14mm with 30mm rings, let alone several, Do you have a link to these?
