I have a Leupold 4x scope with Leupold scope rings holding it to the mounting rail of my AR-15. It's too low on the gun, and the rear of the scope rests on the metal above the charging handle. What type of product do I need to elevate the scope a bit?Thanks in advance!

Scope rings come in low, medium and high for heights. That's my first thought. Get a set of high rings.But, I'm not an AR type of guy. :signgreatreport3kg:

If you go to any place that sells AR15 accessories, look for a "riser", or "scope riser" they make them to fit between the flat top picatinny rail and the rings.

I got a riser mount from Wilson Combat for my scope on my AR-15. I think its http://www.wilsoncombat.com or just try to Google it.
