Most customers buying this base most commonly choose the fixed steel rings in medium height -- G100004 (Fixed Steel Rings, 1 inch, Medium Height, Gloss Finish) ... Also works with 30MM and Quick Detachable Premium Scope Rings
Normally the Medium height allows enough clearance for their thumb to get between the scope's eye piece and the hammer spur.
Installation of base: please note that the front and rear of the base needs to be tightened down evenly, when this is done the front part of the base (barrel end) will snap into place. Some customer's have had issues with having a gap under the front of the base and normally the problem is resolved when the base is tightened down evenly. When properly installed, there should be no gaps under the front or rear of the base whatsoever.
