What is the lowest possible ring height I can run for an aimpoint pro to be mounted on the scout picatinny rail of my scout squad.

I’ve tried the DuckDuckGo machine but nothing comes up. Thanks in advance.

. Couple millimeters above a flat rail, Aimpoint Pros have the same relevant geometry.

I would advise against using that Aimpoint ring! I tried two of them at one point and they were terrible and too easy to strip out. Their optics are nice but that's about it. I hate their mounts and the rings they sell.

I used a Warne Steel (low) ring and it worked out nicely for an Aimpoint PRO I had mounted at one point.

Weaver 48355. Paired up on the Bassett low pic mount, you'd be doing good to slide an index card between the front rubber cap and the mount. It as low as you can possibly get with the pro, as far as I've been able to find.

.84055 is really low, wonder why i never heard of them.
I found the info in an old thread on here by way of Google before I became a member. I'm not joking when I say I wouldn't be able to get it lower without losing the lenscaps.
Mine's on a scout too, but I gave up on scouting it and swapped it into the old bush rifle configuration SAI used to offer. I can't figure out photos on here yet or I'd throw one up.

I will check them out and order a for some if they are still on sale.
