You’re talking about Field Instruments mount. The go for $80 - $150. Considering the fact that they have long been discontinued, that’s about as fair as you’re going to get.

Alternatively, you’ll need to drill, tap and get a custom rail machined.

There are some on ssaagunsales.com

thank you for the info i have been looking around and have seen one but it is the wrong one so i will continue to look

Do you have a pic of the one you’re looking for?

no sorry but the side rail makes the side mount sit straight up almost unlike the ausinel ones

I meant, do you have a picture of what you are after?

no sorry i do not

no worries will do plus i also bought a Sportco 22 hornet but found out the action was a 22 hornet but the barrel was a 222 rimmed and when i used it it was a disaster i took it to R Bloomfield and he took it apart to see what had happened well what a mess so i purchased another Sportco and had it checked oh well thats life huh

Did you fire a 22H in the 222 chamber?

yes two rounds that exploded in the chamber but i was lucky not to get hurt
