OK, more to the point... I see how there are groves

I also see groves on the top of my 1911... also for mounting scopes???
Are these the rings i can use?
41682 - 1" Tikka Quick-Detach Rings High Black Matte
if so, how do they hold again?
I don't get how groves
(previously used as a nail file) will make something 'stick' to
the top of anything unless i'm expected to hold it very steady and balance the
scope atop the gun. That could be a whole new sport in itself!
BTW, on my Mossberg 500 - there were 2 pre-drilled holes that i mounted a nice rail
on, for me optics. Only needed a standard Flathead screwdriver.

There's a lot of information on the Marlin rimfires over on Rimfire Central. Probably more than you'll ever need, but a lot of Marlin owners stay busy on there.

The picture below is the dovetail grooves mentioned earlier, the 3/8 to Picatinny scope base/adapter is clamped to the dovetail on my Model 60. The scratches you see on the receiver are part of the dovetail where I had to file mine to get the 3/8 mount to fit because Marlin managed to send this rifle out with a badly cast receiver. I have no clue which 1911 you have but it's probably not the same type of grooves we're talking about.
The rings you linked didn't specify 3/8, 11mm, Picatinny or Weaver mount, but the picture looked like a 3/8 dovetail set of rings. However, you won't need the high profile set unless you're looking to mount a 50mm objective scope. Most scopes up to about 44mm with adjustable objectives will fit just fine with the medium profile Leapers mount linked below. This is the mount I put on my 60 a little over a year ago, I was having trouble with the scope walking to the rear with a similar set of split-ring style rings you linked above, this mount stopped the scope creep and has been rock solid since day one.
Like JTJ, I prefer scopes with adjustable objectives, I have yet to buy a rimfire specific scope even though I own three rimfire rifles. The adjustable objective centerfire scopes are just fine on any rifle.
