Order a 3 inch hi rise from Ken Light and all will be well. I have several on my 10 inch bbls for smallbore and field pistol with scopes up tp 36 power. They ARE the answer.

KL Mid rise

The mid rise is correct but hold the presses!!! It is GREAT for IHMSA type shooting but is definitely not the way to go off the bench. For bench shooting I just use a set of hunter see thru type high rings that get the big occular bell up off the front of the bbl. These see thru's provide plenty of clearance for the big rifle scopes used in benchrest. Ring choice is up to you but I prefer the Burris Signature rings with the inserts so I can adjust the scope to optical center and bring it on target by using the offset ring inserts. Hope this helps. Regards... Gary

Advice from Gary...

I agree 100% with Gary...amazing since most of the time he is full of crap! :) I'm kidding, of course. I've used 36x with a 10" barrel. I didn't keep it on just because it stuck out past the end of the barrel and I didn't like the residue/deposits that would build up on the end of my nice scope. As a result, I bought a Tasco 6-24x and I really don't care if it "looks" nasty as long as it shoots. I do not experience any trouble at all with the fact that part of the scope is absorbing some of the muzzle blast. I'm not sure if I would want to try this with a higher intensity round though...and certainly not with one of my nice scopes to start with.

I would have to ask you again to clarify what type of shooting you are planning to do with it. If you plan to shoot IHMSA offhand events then by all means...get yourself a mid-rise or high-rise scope mount and blast away. If you want to shoot freestyle events (creedmore position or some other hybrid) then you should certainly consider a Ken Light UAS scope mount. If you are wanting a bench gun, then keep the scope as close to the bore as your objective lens will allow you. Bret

High rise scope mount?

I picked up a cheap BSA 36X and have had no trouble at all in smallbore or Field pistol. If nothing else it is a great training aid as it sure as **** tells on you when you are less than steady. Best practice for finishing the stroke I have ever had. Regards...g
