    Can't help about being in a place where availability/shipping/import are difficult but there are several options for mounting one of the modern, short coupled scopes on a standard long action like a M70. The longer the scope's eye relief the easier it will be with a bonus of less likely potential "scope eyebrow".

    I use a mix and match of dual dovetail mounts on the two I have. No matter the manufacturer, just have to use a Win M70 specific front and rear base combination. I would use some combination of M70 offset or extended bases along with one or two offset or extended rings. For a DG rifle, for obvious reasons, it's best to keep the loading port clear of obstructive bases, rings, etc. If all else fails, have a competent gunsmith make or modify a mount system that will work for the specific scope/rifle combination.

    offset (extended) dovetail mount .png Here's a front dovetail ring and base with some offset (extension) in the ring.
