It's unfortunate that that mount was chosen rather than top mounts, but since it's been done I wouldn't change it either. Try one of these:
It's a rather short scope, so you make sure it's possible to mount it with proper eye relief. Otherwise, it's an excellent scope and the magnification range is ideal for all around hunting. The 2x is great for brush and woods and if a deer is too far away to hit with 7x, it's too far away, period.
