If I was going to play with the mount I would just buy some MOA offset rings
Burris makes them for like 80 bucks a set for 1" tube I think but that was years ago
Seems now they can be bought rings and inserts separate
Burris Optics Pos-Align Offset Ring Inserts for 1-Inch Signature Scope Rings
I bought these for a Browning rifle a number of years ago when the Bushnell 4200 series scope ran out of adjustment.
The smallest offset worked perfect for the gun and the scope has never moved even thought the inserts are plastic.
