IIRC, Weaver refers the the "offset" rings as Extension rings - they effectively move the ring grasping surface either fwd or rearward about the width of the ring (a little over one inch), which would put the ring more towards the scope's center of mass (not necessarily a good thing).

I understand the need for mounting the scope for a proper eye relief & sight window, but it's also best for the scope if the rings are as far apart as possible, to avert any accidental side pressure moving the POI during a shot.
