Hi folks,

I'm new here and I need some help with a new-to-me Model 81-ts. I just acquired this rifle and it's currently better than my eyes so I'd like to scope it. My first attempt flopped and I'm not sure why. I tried to mount a 4x32 Simmons using medium-height Leupold 1" dovetail mounts.

Even with the medium mounts I couldn't get bolt clearance of the eyepiece tube. I haven't been able to find a "tall" version of those mounts yet, and these are typical not stocked parts at the shops near me.

Does anyone have a recommendation of a scope/mount combo that will work with this rifle. Even though the radius is relieved on the bolt "drop", I can't find a possible combo with my limited in-stock selection.

Thanks and straight shooting.
