    I’m guessing that your present mount is, in fact, not a 9-11mm high, but rather that is the dovetail width. A medium Hawke ring is 45mm (1.7″) high. A high set of rings is 50mm (1.9″) high. All of the Hawke rings are close to the measurements above.

    You maybe have to mount a two peace base/riser? Look up on eBay/Pyramid air or somewhere else.

    Thanks guys ..I’m no expert on setting up my New rifle..it came wrongly mounted…and I knew that..so I order a gun rest ..rather than try and work on it off a blanket…BIG differance..so I set it up in front off Jarred..and took note…I would like to have it more forward..but at least the magazine clears..
    thanks for all your help..heck if Jimmy King wasn’t on vacation..he surely would have streerded me right as well…here some pictures.

    At your current set up it is as far forward that you can make it.

    The 9-11mm that you quoted earlier is the size of the rail not the height of the mounts.
    Mounts come in low , medium, high, and you may be able to find Extra high? Not sure if it comes in dovetail mounts?
    I’m also not sure about possibly looking for a smaller magazine?
    You can look at Aztec Emerald scopes. They have a smaller turret bulge. It mat clear?

    Or buy some FX No limit rings for your scope. That should allow you to raise the scope enough to clear the mag.

    Good Luck!

    Would moving the turret bulge to the front of the mag be too forward for the scope?

    thank you  Toku58..the 9-11 mm I was quoting was off my invoice..I have not found extra high dove tail mounts ..but gunnertrones..has a good idea with simple risers and pyramid air has them…looking thru the scope I would like it to be more forward and will place an order…the way it came to me was just wrong…I have not found fx no limit mounts in stock any where.

Might not help but there is some in stock here in Canada,  great shop they have 1 inch and 30mm in stock.  I have the 1 inch and love the mounts.

    https://www.airgunsource.ca/en/fx-airguns-fx-no-limit-mounts-1-inch.html

    Probably around 60 USD so a bit cheaper than down there might offset the shipping a bit.

    One thing I see is your front top rings are tight to the base rings. Your back top rings are an 1/8″ up from the base. The gun will shoot low if the mag did clear. Your only off about that distance for the mag to clear. Try that.
    Even with my no limit rings my mag kisses my scope the way I have it set up.
    Hope that helps.

    You might consider offset BKL rings?
