11mm to 3/8th adapter. Does such a thing exist?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if you can get an adapter to mount a 3/8th inch scope with built in mounts onto a 11mm  air rifle dovetail rail 


I've just bought a Lyman 12x supertarget I wish to mount onto a Parker Hale Pheonix rifle with a 11mm rail.

I've tried that and they don't work by turning the clamp 180 degrees.  This scope was made in the 60's I think and you had to get mounting blocks from Lyman  with the dovetail cut in and have a gun smith fit it to your rifle.  

Im going to file the two ends of the 11mm dovetail on the Pheonix down to see if I can fit it.    I used a full length Weaver rail on top of the 11mm dovetail mount on the Pheonix anyway with my more modern scope so the alteration won't be visible

Won't be doing that again. Hours and hours of hand filing .  Filed the last inch of both ends of the 11mm rail to a 3/8" to fit the scope.. if I want to swap back to a modern scope, I just swap the scope on a weaver rail which covers the alteration.   Scope bell clears the barrel by 5mm just enough room for vertical adjustment of scope
