Is that not 1”? Pretty sure any 1” scope will work. 25.4mm in an inch I think.

Edit: I could be way off base by the way

I believe you are right but this is a true German made scope with rings to match that I'm trying to replace. I believe that a common 1" diam scope would fit to loose in the rings. If I'm incorrect please somebody notify me of this

So are you trying to find a new scope to fit your old rings?

Throw a 1" scope in it and tighten the screws and see how it grips.

You could also lap the rings with a 1" bar, then use a 1" scope. That might not even be required.
After further review, I have that all wrong. The above advise will do you no good if you have 26mm rings.

Supposedly IOR and Kahles are your best bets. Here's a reasonably priced Kahles:
