Rings for a 597

257 4
I am helping my soon to be brother-in-law build his first 597. He has been shooting mine and decided that this was a rifle that he wanted to own.

He ordered a 597 HB with Laminated stock that came with the factory weaver base. My problem is he has a 6-20-44 AO scope to top this rifle off. The first set of rings we tried did not set the scope high enough to clear the barrel and allow the Adjustable Objective to rotate. Are thier different heights of the weaver rings or must I go to a see through mount to get the needed height.

Anyone else run into this problem before?

We have new mags and a new hammer on the way as well as a date with the polishing wheel. Should be a fine shooting rig once we find the ammo it likes and get this big scope mounted.
