I mounted a vortex viper 6-20X50 on my sendero. My question is. How much gap between scope and barrel is too little? Scope is not touching but there is very little air between them.

Can you get a cover on the scope ?
I like to have a least 1/8" space. I have ground down the flip up cover to fit but that was on a small caliber rifle, on something with significant recoil I might want a little more space.
