I inherited an old savage model 120A...single shot .22 Great little shooter but I'm having trouble mounting a scope on it. I have seen the same rifle with a simmons 3-9x32 mounted on it with 3/8's dovetail mounts. I picked up that same scope today but the 3/8 dovetail all the way tightened is still a few hairs short of grabbing the rail tightly...I need some ideas or insight how to make this work. anyone ever have this problem? I'm taking my nephew squirrel hunting tomorrow and would really like to try this old rifle out.
just a few hairs shy of grabbing the rail.
