    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but your Pre-War M70 has now been drilled and tapped. That 'adapter' is actually named a scope base which has holes in it through which we put screws to attach that base to the receiver. The rings are attached to that base and the scope is set into the bottom half of the rings then the top half is screwed to the bottom half.
