Removing quarter rib on a No. 1 and installing new scope bases

I recently bought a No. 1 International in .30-06 that had a Leupold 4x scope installed in the factory rings. I didn't buy the scope with the rifle but did get the rings. I had on hand a Burris 2-7x32 handgun scope so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Well, it was so far off to the top left that I couldn't adjust far enough to zero it. So, I tried switching the rings from front to back and had the same problem. Now, this Burris scope has a lot of adjustment available so I am really confused. I'll assume that handgun scopes don't have as much adjustment as rifle scopes but I found this situation to be rediculous. I'm wanting to know what bases I can put on this rifle if I remove the quarter rib. I'm guessin any that have the right holes - is this a standard thing? Then, and most importantly, what height rings do I use to make up for the difference in height between the front and rear? The No. 1 Varminter doesn't use a quarter rib but I believe the barrel contour is also different making the height difference less. And it looks as if they make up for the contour in the bases and not in the rings. Have any of you tried to mount bases and rings after removing a quarter rib on an International?

I'm sorry but why would you want to remove the quarter ring?The scope you are trying to mount has an extended eye relief which you cannot use on a rifle.
Buy yourself a RIFLE scope and mount it.Problem solved.And you saved yourself money.
I have had 35-40 #1 Rugers and have used the stock rings and bases with no trouble.
Welcome to the forums.

Don't screw with a really good rifle. Go to Sportsman's Warehouse, and buy a 3-9X40 for about $20 bucks. A pistol scope was never made for a high powered rifle. I have one of these cheap scopes on my #1 in 45X70, and it shoots great. But again, don't fool with a really good gun.
