I recently obtained one of BSA's fine bolt actions from the mid 1950's that has integral dovetails milled in the top of the receiver like CZ and BRNO rifles. Parker Hale made ringmounts back in the day for this model, but they are impossible to locate. Does anyone know if another make would fit this model? Thanks, Sandlapper

You might try the above. They offer several dove tail width rings that may match your BSA.

Keep an eye on eBay - they appear periodically.
The rear ring will have a truncated cone projection between the dovetail claws, which matches the dimple in the rear receiver ring.

There's a 1" and a 26 mm set on there right now.

Fellows, Thanks for all your help. I will check with all these folks; maybe they'll have what I need. Regards, Sandlapper

Those BSA’s are excellent rifles, particularly the early one with the Mauser rotating extractor.

The above chart will show you which mounts to look for on eBay.

It appears that the dovetail size was the same as the BRNO with integral dovetail, just that the BRNO had a deeper hole for a recoil stud.

So BRNO mounts should work but you might have to grind down the stud on the mount.
