newbie help

266 2
New here and already I need some help. On the bright side it looks like I am in the right place.

I have a 10/22 w/ BC Bull Barrel and sny stock. I currently have a scope, BEC 3-9x50mm in mullet(I think) medium rings, mounted on the Ruger factory base.
Problem is the scope sits a tad too low so I can't fit on my flip caps(or whatever they are called). You know the covers that flip up.

I need a source (ie link to) a simple scope base that will be slightly higher that the one that comes w/ the rifle. think enough to give me room to slide on the caps is all I want.

I am also interested in upgrading my trigger and adding an extended mag release. Any help would be great.
I am kinda slow so links will help me. I have been searching the site for two days and can't find exactly what I am looking for.

That is all I will be doing to this one, but I already want to build a second one with one of those fancy thumb hole stocks on a SS receiver.
