Dennis: Here take a peek the scope and rocker box work great together and there is some extra space too. You gave me a good 3 to 4 inches of wiggle room and that is perfect. The first time I put the scope on the box I was just a bit out of balance but I quickly balanced the scope and it works well now…. I focused on some trees a mile or so away and noticed the mirror needs dusted off but otherwise it is awesome. David
