    Winchester Model 290

    I picked up a Winchester Model 290 tube fed .22 (free). Does anyone know how I can mount a scope on it and suggestions for a scope?

    Pictures would help, but it should have a raised line on the recever, this is for mounting a scope to, you use standered 22 rings that clamp on to it, If it does not have one of these raised lines you will have to it taped for a mount, Simmons makes a great little 3x9x40 22 scope for about $30.00 I have had one on my 22 for years and it serves me well, Hope this helps.

    Just like HandK49031 said, get a set of these... MidwayUSA - B-Square 1" Sport Utility 22 Rimfire and Airgun Rings Medium Matte ...then purchase a 1" diameter scope of your choice, and put it all on the grooves on top of the receiver.




    Or you can get one of these adapters... MidwayUSA - B-Square 3/8" Aluminum Dovetail to Weaver-Style Adapter Matte ...mount it on top of the receiver, then purchase any Weaver style rings and mount them.




    Or, I would be willing to buy the rifle from you for $75.
    Browncoats: May have been the losing side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

    I am located in Greenwood. I'm sure I could round up something for a trade.
