Can anyone tell me what brand these rings are? Also what dovetail this is? Its very small. Size wise it looks like it would fit 50mm finders.

HI...without a scale, it is hard to get the sizing, but the dovetail is unusual. I am thinking this is a DIY project, and the dovetail piece is one that is used to mount common red dot finders.  Take a look at some images on the web for RDFs, and see if the mounting system looks the same.  My suggestion is to remove that dovetail, and put a regular Synta sized shoe on it so that it can fit into most common Synta bases.
