Default Scope mounting experts....

Do any of you know, off the top of your heads, any rifles that have a 9/16 center to center spacing between holes for a scope base?

Trying something dumb here. I have a Remington 552 I want to scope. Yes, its dovetail cut, but the barrel is loose fitting because of how they break down. So, the rear sight removed leaves two screw holes 9/16 apart, that I could fashion a cantilever mount on.

Any suggestions? I can't find any of the major companies that mention the hole patterns of the bases they sell.

I think the Savage 93 bases are close to that ? I don't have one here I can look tomorrow ?

I'll be able to check tomorrow as well, but it could help narrow down going through all the bases we have if I get an idea of who uses that spacing.

I'm guessing I'll just have to. One of the most knowledgeable people I know knew I was messing with a Remington just from the question, but couldn't tell me who else used that spacing. I'm going to bet I'm sheeit out of luck.
