ACI Mount for 1" Tube? Can only find 30mm...

Does anyone know if they make an ACI mount (angle-cosine indicator) for a 1" tube? I have found one for a 30mm tube but not a 1" tube. Do I need to get a picatinny rail base and just forget about the tube mount? Would rather not... Thanks in advance to anyone that has an answer!

Just go to Google and type in 30mm ring reducers and problem solved.

The maker of the ACI advices against installing them on a 1" tube. He says the scope might not be strong enough with heavy recoiling rifles. It'd be alright with the 30 mm tube but you'd be best served using picatinny bases instead when using 1" tubes.
