I use a vintage BSA short action in .22 Hornet (Regent model serial number starts with C1B****) and currently have it scoped via medium Parker-Hale roll-off mounts with a Pecar Champion 8x one inch. The mounts have seen better days and I have experienced some problems with scope creep. The action had no recoil stud holes drilled but I have remedied that via a rifle smith.
I am still experiencing some problems and have yet to rule out a defect in the scope. All screws etc are tight. The rifle will shoot close when rested but then after a few rounds, the zero moves. I intend to try a different scope in the near future.
I would like to try some modern steel mounts but have not been able to establish whether any modern manufacturers make mounts that would fit my BSA.
If any members have resolved this problem or have suggested solutions, I would be appreciative to know of them.
