I'm trying to resurrect my fathers pre-64 win 94..it has a redfield M294 base and scope and the scope just won't hold a zero. As "clean" as the optics are, its time for a new scope but the rings are  5/8 or 3/4 {i am guessing} does anyone make 30mm rings for the m294 mount? or any suggestions on a deccent {$200-$300} small tube IER? thanks in advance..

Picture?  If there is enough meat I'd think about a scout scope and ream out the rings.  You may be able to get the scope repaired also.

There is nowwhere near enough metal to open them up, I was goin to ship the redfield out once I had something else mounted, I just don"t know if anyone makes larger rings for this mount...

 I can't find a picture of that mount. I did a search, but all it comes up with are your inquiries on other forums. You really looked around for answers, didn't you?
 For what it's worth, I don't think anybody ever made a 5/8 scope- lots of 3/4 and 7/8 -inch ones though.
 You may have to go to a machine shop or a good gunsmith and have something custom-made.
 (Personally, I'd just start fresh, myself, with new base and rings.)

I would be interested in the Redfield Scope and mount if you still have them. paulelliott@earthlink.net
