In the past they have made American scopes in 7/8" and 3/4".

Probably one or the other.

The problem is, good high-quality 7/8" scopes are obsolete and haven't been made in years.
And 3/4" are only made now in cheap .22 RF scopes.

For either in a good scope, look on EvilBay for old Redfield or Browning .22 scopes.

I did some research and from what I can see, Leupold makes a 1" tube and a 30mm Tube, but I didn't see anything smaller than 1". 1" is about 25.4mm, so a 30mm tube is obviously larger than a 1" tube. Is it possible the rings you have are for the 30mm tube, thus causing the tube to appear smaller than 1".
also, can you provide some detail about the scope, model, what size objective lens, what power is it. Actually the model will be suifficient to quickly identify the tube size.

Thanks RC and gamestalker...They are 7/8 off a 1954 Sav 99. Just didn't have the rifle in front of me at the time...Love the old stuff but it can be a frustration. It is a factory drill and tap with the original 7/8" rings and luckily the Vin scope turned out to be the same. A nice combo. ;)
