Big Mike is, as usual, 100% correct. That combination will work fine - I have used it myself on a 10/22 with bull barrel - and is a very economical solution. One caveat: the "granite" finish on a WTC18 is very fragile and anything but Burris Signature Zee rings will in fact mark it up. If that is not a consideration and you don't need to "tilt" the scope ( 100 yard shooting with subsonic ammo ) , Big Mike's solution is A-1. A (IMHO) better - but considerably more expensive - rig can be done with a Power Custom mount and Signature Zee rings in "High".
