I have an old Stevens Springfield. Not a target rifle, but shoots good enough for my daughter to learn small bore competition. If she sticks with it I'll invest in something better.

is the receiver diameter is about the same as a
Winchester 75 or Remington 513?

one of those bases could be modified, may save you some time

This can be done. I modified a Redfield 75 base to work on my Stevens 416. Just drill out the first threaded mounting hole to allow mounting the base to the existing holes in the receiver; this will leave you with one threaded hole to mount the sight to the base.

It didn't make my groups any tighter that the original Stevens rear sight, but it was wholesome entertainment.
