Original Bassett M1A Scope Mount/Ring Question

I need some information from any members who have successfully incorporated an angled original M1A Bassett Scope Mount. I have a 1" tube Vortex scope and I need to know which rings have the correct base to center dimensions so the scope is centered directly over the barrel.

Yep, he's right. I have that rig and you need to get weaver rings of a certain height.

But you need one regular ring and one offset ring to mount most scopes.

I had called Bassett before my first post. Mr. Bassett the creator of the mount sadly passed away this last year and his daughter was not knowledgeable on my issue and questions so put it out to any of you for your help.

I beg to differ with you about his daughter.

I think they suggest useing the weaver high rings to put scope directly over rifle bore when useing their original low mount.
