I recently received a 22/45 Mark III Hunter as an early Christmas present from my parents. I also got a VISM Green Dot / Red Laser for it and was getting ready to mount it to the gun, but the scope base that I received with the Mark III is kind of long and looks a little funny sticking out over the fluted barrel. It functions fine, I'm sure, but it just looks strange that it sticks out over the barrel.
Do any of you know of a third party option for a scope base that might be a little shorter? Or another option is to maybe cut down the scope base that came in the kit? I noticed it has grooves and didn't know if maybe it could be cut at those points and filed smooth for a shorter fit...
Thanks in advance for any info. I've also included an image of the base that I have for anyone who needs a visual.
