Hi Mark,

I would use the low profile Weaver style mount from UTG. It is available for $19 from the Country Shed, part # MNT-P669

The following link will take you to the correct page.

When installing it use blue Loc-Tite on all screws, it will prevent them from loosening. Also make sure the screws are as tight as possible and the scope and mount will not move.
