G2 Contender Scope questions

    It seems that info is hard to find for scope mounts for the G2 Contender, or am I just looking in the wrong places?
    I have a G2 with a Bulberry .223 barrel, has Burris base and rings, and I'm trying to mount a scope with a 50 mm apature on it, and the scope touches the barrel before I tightened it down, I stopped at this point to ask the following questions:
    should I shim the lower half of the rings?
    Are there higher (taller) rings that I can install on the Burris Base.
    Do TC's take a special base for scope mounting?
    Where can I find some info on this?
    Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
  2. I have used shims to raise the scope from touching the barrel.
    Just check that scope and barrel are in correct alignment and the scope is
    not pointing up or too far down.
    It should be possible to shim Under the bases

    G2 scope questions

    Could you go into a bit more detail on this? Mine has Burris rings and I did find them in standard-medium and tall heights, is this what you had in mind, or is there another option?
    Thanks for any help and info
