I new I needed some more pictures!
there is a metal piece under the site above the mount that locks in in one of 3 positions.
1 is straight up, 2 is down with clearance . IT can go further as you see in the next down picture. There is a rubber ring around the eye disk for this, as to not mark the stock. The last position that I don't use would lie it over the trigger used for other rifles that would mount on the other side of the trigger.
I'll need to make a trip to tandy leather and make a leather sock to fit over the site for extra protection.
you can still see the screws that held the rail where my scope was. I seem to of lost my originals and need some fillers to make it flush, also needs a filler for the rear site that I removed!
