Measure the distance between the bell on the scope and the barrel and do the math. Does not need a lot of clearance. Be careful and confirm that if you need to slide the scope rearward that the rail does not get into the scope taper with the low rings of choice.

Good point, he looks like he'll be ok if he is just dropping it straight down. I always cut those extended rails off even with the lead edge of the receiver using a cut wheel on a dremel.
