I have a sporterized enfield no1 mk 3 smle and i have a question about mounting a scope.(yes i know theres a scope and mounting forum but i can't seem to get an answer there). Now my question is i'd like to find a set of scope rings that will fit on the rifles rail that was already on there because it seems fairly solidly placed. But the rail isn't the standard size, it appears to be the size for most airguns. Is there a high quality set of rings available for purchase designed to be used on high powered rifles, a link for where i can buy these would be appreciated.
Also i've seen some adaptors designed to go on this this size rail and makes it so you can mount like its the standard 1913 sized rail, if there isnt a set of rings like i was talking about is there one of these that wont fall apart from the shock. I apologize in advance for the rambling nature of this post. But to be honest im kind of out of my depth here so any help and info would be greatly appreciated.
Heres pictures to help get my question across

Sorry, but I just have no idea. I really can't tell much about the rail from the picture. I understand wanting to use what is already there but it might be easier to just get a new rail for that gun which would take normal weaver style rings?

Good Luck

I honestly couldn't imagine a small set of rings like that being effective long. I'd go with another mount.

I highly doubt that will work at all. There are no cross slots to prevent the rings from moving under recoil. I would dump it and get a Weaver or 1913 rail. These rails are produced by many different manufactures and cost from as little as $27 up to $200+.
