Default Nightforce mounting problem, please help...

Hey fellas, I ordered a NF BR scope with NF uni-mount. The setup was recommended by the guys over at Sport Optics... they were great by the way!

I got everything late today and wanted to get it set up... When I mount eh optic the front of the scope is just touching my rail. This is obviously a huge issue... Does anyone have any suggestions to fix this quick? Will I need a new mount?

Also as another note, the NF Unimount I am using is the 1.375

The receiver base is not slopped...

Here is a picture of what I am looking at right now. Since I have only ever used rings maybe I am doing something wrong?



PLEASE HELP here

Thanks
Bc

You will have to get bigger rings and they only make one size up from that. Great scopes you will like them i have the NXS.

Taller rings or a riser. I personaly would go with taller rings. Give OP a call and tell them your problem. Im sure they will help you out. RISER>>>>> http://www.midwayusa.com/product/529...-flattop-matte

1.375 is as tall as it gets

sorry my man, you need taller rings or a riser, the unimount by itself won't work with that setup
