Scope rings for narrow rail

I have a Romanian .22 training rifle that has a dovetail rail machined on the top of the receiver that calipers at .330" (~8.2 mm) edge to edge. Standard .22 rails are ~.420".

Anybody know of a source for scope rings for this dovetail? The rifle appears to be capable of excellent accuracy, but I won't know until I get a scope on it.

If I have to, I can modify existing rings to fit, but it'll take 3-4 hrs, I think.

Thanks, Tom

Posted in "rimfire" too - but I'd make a conversion rail and epoxy/bolt it onto the receiver. Brownels have P1913/Weaver and even 11mm(iirc) blanks - Any decent machine shop can mill a concentric slot in the base - I do this with Airguns a fair bit!

Or give Glen Seekins a call - He's offered to help me on future projects as my rail supplier here has broken his spark eroder and wont be replacing it.

Thanks Chris, I'll check out Brownells first, also I didn't call CZ, yet.

Appreciate the help, Tom
