I have used these on the older Annies, seemed to work great.

I think George's idea is best. I have also set up those old actions in the mill and cut the front dovetail. I wouldn't do it now if I had known the mount George mentions was available. The action maker only considered using them for peep sights.

If you are interested in mounting a scope in quality rings, you could contact www.kelbly.com. they make quality matched rings that will attach directly (clamp) to the 11 MM dovetails on an Anschutz.

An alternative is www.diproductsinc.com, they make a rail that will slide onto the dovetail (well machined mount) and lock in place using @ 8 set screws, or if drilled and tapped (not in your case) 4 screws going into the action. The configuration is a picatinny rail and any number of scope rings or mounts can then be used.

Hope this helps.

I use the BLK Mount George talked about on 2 older 1964 annies that are only dovetailed on the back of the action and they work great I wouldn't alter the older annie if I didn't have to
