Bassett Mount

Has anyone tried the low Bassett picatinny mount with a scope that has no front bell? Can the iron sights be used with that setup?
Thanks in advance.

On mine, at 7 clicks up from bottom, the mount is in the way.

7 clicks won't get you to 100 so the answer would seem to be you can't use irons with the low basset, as stated on the Basset website.
