Good evening everyone, I looked around and couldn't find anything solid regarding the ring height needed on a full length rail.  I have been doing a few calculations and see to have found a few rings that could work but wanted to ask and hear from the more knowledgable out there.
 
I have an H&K SL8 with and a SWFA 5-20 scope to mount on it.  I was looking at the Aadmount rings but I don't believe even the high ones would work.  With the butler creek caps the measurement to the center of the scope to the edge of the rings is 1.3".  The Bobro and AR Aadmount (20 MOA slope, would it still work?) mounts like like they would work but would that cause any performance issues?  It won't be as close to the barrel and I may buy a low profile rail for the SL8.  There was a doc rak (SP?) rail but I can't seem to find anywhere to buy it for the SL8.
 
Sorry for the long question but I wanted to get as much info out as possible.  Thank you reading!

Actually after seeing the pinned Aadmount post (w/pics I didn't see earlier), the 30mm with 20 MOA slope should work great.
