Default Bobbing hammer to clear scope

I searched and found old threads on the subject but not what I was looking for.
I like my scopes low. This one is for my grandson so it is even more important that it is low. As you can see in the pic I don't need a lot of room. The scope is mounted too far back for this pic only. I saw a youtube video of how to cut some off and modify the extension. Any other ideas on doing that?

See the low profile hammer mods in the FAQs, there are 2 parts, I only use low rings, extra low if I find em.

I did one that way.


Started by working on the hammer extention until I could get it to slip down farther. Mostly needle file work.
Once that was in place and locked I used a dremel to bob just a very small amount of hammer off so no contact.


Less than a quarter of an inch total, about 3/16's.


Take your time, get your fit solid on that extension.

The deed is done. Used a file on the spur so that it would seat deeper on to the hammer. I then marked a line on the hammer where I wanted to cut it. Used a Dremel to cut it off where I wanted. Used a buffer belt to groom it up and then re-blued it. As I dry fired it to test it the spur would move it's way back up the hammer until it touched the scope. I used the dremel to create a small detent in the hammer where the set screw contacted. I also noticed that the spur was bending/deforming as I tightened the set screw. I used the vice to squeeze the spur back to its normal width so that it fit better and then I didn't tighten it so much that it bent the top strap of the spur. I've dry fired it many times and it remains in place.
