    Yea some dovetail rings can be had pretty cheap for 20 and under. I took a picture of about where I want it mounted with a measuring tape to get a idea if where my rings to sit up from to make sure it clears the rear sight. I do know with this scope low rings will not work the front of the scope will hit the rear sight.

    Remove the rear sight. It's in a dovetail and easily driven out. You want the scope to be as close to the bore as possible.

    I don't want to have to do that, the sights are spot on, and if something happens to the scope and have to take it off then have to resight in the iron sights.

    Trust me, you will never go back to irons on that gun. If you do, your out a half dozen shots.
    It's more a PITA to remove that scope than it is to resight in irons.

    I ended up with the Bushnell dawn to dusk, nice at the range. Going to chase squirrels in 7 hours. Will try to post pictures for you tomorrow of what I have been up to.
