I recently bought a new .223 CZ 527 rifle and mounted a 50mm AO scope on it. I have about the thickness of a credit card between the AO and the barrel. The bell of the scope is about 7 inches down from the receiver, very close to where the rear sight would be if it had one. Is this enough clearance? Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply I was hoping I was ok. The rings could be a bit taller but would like to keep the scope as close to the barrel as I can without it being a problem.
