Re: Rings and Bases ?
I don't find that its egts in the way any more than the scope itself does , I mean yea its in the way if your in a big hurry to load the rifle but other than that I don't find it a bother
If your planning to mout the scope on this gun and not take it on and off you could get the Leuplod dual dovetail rings an mounts , they are as strong as it can get and alot lighter , and they don't look tactical at all . Match up the Leupold base with the Burris rings you can add the 20 moa off set later if you need it with the ring incerts.
You should be able to mount the leupold scope up far enough to keep it off you forhead with the Leupold DD rings and mounts and if not they do make extension rings
