Because of the raised Scope mount of a M1A Rifle will super low rings work on this. I am mounting a IOR-2-12x36 with 35mm Tube Scope to my M1A. TPS makes both the Low and Super Low Rings. Currently I am limited by the SA Gen 3 Base which is a Weaver base
Low are 1.025 Super Low are 0.950.

Thanks
Steve

Based on these pictures of M1As with 3rd gen mounts, it seem like the mount is pretty high and that super low rings should work well on all but the largest scopes.
 
Note that your point of tightest clearance is probably where the occular peice meets the rear sight and not where the objective meets the barrel.

Due to the mount and the 36mm obj I would say you would be fine with the superlow rings.
