Default What ADM mount?

I'm buying a Vortex Viper PST scope this week and need a mount. I've decided on ADM, but which one? This is for a flat top AR15, no BUIS to worry about. I prefer the lowest mount that will work.

Vortex PST 4-16X50 (30mm tube): http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=836556

AD-Recon-30: http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=613338

Ad-Recon-H-30: http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=864543

Thanks for the help.

Will that mount be tall enough to provide enough clearance?

I've got a Recon "H" with a Burris TAC 30 on my firestick, it's pretty high, but I have neck isssues so it works for me.
I don't think measuring mine would help, as my scope has no end bell.
Go to ADM's site, they have all the measurements one could ask for.

Here is a site to compare heights of different mounts.
