When I had my XT-22VR I attempted it, however the molded attachment point was junk and snapped. I was told that it was purely a sling mounting point, not a bipod or accessory mount. You might have...

I would say that if you have the glass mounted as close as you can while still having clearance, and you're able to get proper eye relief, I would stick to it as-is. Height over bore it's definitely...
