Is the choate m14 style handgaurd lower then the oem?
I got a new bushnell sportsman 4x-12x 40 ao. I had it mounted with weaver see through rings but ran out of adjustment on the scope all the way up and all the way to the right. Since I can't seem to use the arpeture sight with the see through rings any way and there out of alignment, I thought I'd try to use the supplied rings that came with my used gun. They are a 1/4" to low and the scope hits the hand guard. I'd rather leave the scope low and get the choate hand guard if it will work.
Will ruger swap rings for a used gun? or other recomendations for rings if the handguard will not work?
