Just a suggestion, and if the rifle fits you leave it the way it is. I would remove the front sight and get some lower rings if it were my rifle.
The height on that scope pretty much precludes a good "cheek to stock weld" (solid contact of your cheek with the stock) and being able to look through the scope. The see-thru mounts are just a bad idea. They give you none of the benefits of open sights and wreck any chance of good form when using the glass.
If you do get lower mounts, and keep the same large objective lensed scope, you'll have to lose the rear sight, and my have to put a comb raising kit on the stock.
Try this: close your eyes, and shoulder the rifle. Open your eyes. What do you see?
