I have a 1916 mfg date model 98. Sometime in the past life of the rifle it was converted to a 220 Swift with a sporter weight barrel. When i got the rifle it was passed down to me but it did not have a scope. I cant find any manufactures name on the barrel. It has a set trigger. Anyhow my problem is the scope i am trying to put on will not fit the rings. NO they are one in rings and one inch scope but the scope bell and the magnification adjustment ring do not let the barrel of the scope into the rings. The bases are to close together. The bases are Weaver and the rings are weaver. The length on the barrel of the scope is 5.8 inches I need 6.2 for the scope to fit. I looked at other rings and bases that are the same as the ones i have online at nachez and midway. How do i get the base to set back atleast one in. I know i could redrill the bases but do not want to put more holes in the receiver. I thought of ordering a longer base and redrilling the holes. I know they need to be right on. Just so u know i am a mill wright by trade and can run all machine shop equipment. I have access to both a manual and CNC mill, so i know i can get them right on. I want to use this as my primary coyote gun the weatherby is costing me a fortune to shoot the dogs with. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
