DIP rail and low ring clearance?



Log in to see fewer ads
This is a stab in the dark, but will a Simmons 22 Mag (3-9x32), sitting atop the DIP rail with low rings, clear the rail? Particularly on the eyepiece end? I noticed several have DIP rails per the 597 pic thread, but I didn't see mentions of what ring height they were using. Of course, one brand's "low" is closer to another brand's "medium".
Thanks in advance

Edit...Or, I just skip the rail altogether and use the factory dovetail groove, which I know will work with low rings. However, does anyone who goes this route have problems with their rings "walking"?

MidwayUSA usually has all the measurements of the optics and optics paraphernalia they sell for one to do the math.
In other words I don't know.

It's a simple guide for objective clearance and corresponding ring height. My question is regarding the specific DIP rail and eyepiece/magnification dial clearance.

With the grooves and rings degreased thoroughly with alcohol there should be no trouble with rings moving and no I haven't with mine.

I just purchased the Mcarbo Picatinny Rail mount for my 597. It slides tight onto the dovetail and then screws down with the three screw holes provided on the rifle and screws provided with the rail. I ordered and used Vortex low mount rings and mounted a Weaver 3X9X40 Kaspa. Sighted it in for 50yds and had no issues. Followed the torque recommendations for the rings. A good solid mount and appears to be 1 1/4" height, cross-hairs to barrel center, above the barrel. Very nice combination. Think the rail was a few dollars more than the DIP. No clearance problems at all.
