Long story short:  My father-in-law reacquired an old, family bolt action rifle that has some sentimental value.  The receiver must be odd because he tells me it needs a "side mount" for the scope rings and that the existing rings are very close together--right at 1 inch.

Most turret bases are closer to an inch-and-a-quarter, it seems, so modern scopes aren't going to fit in those rings.

Anybody know of a scope that has a small turret base that might work here?

Thanks very much.

   My old El Paso K2.5 60C Weaver measures exactly 1".  I can't measure my K4 as it's not here with me.
