There were two heights. High and Extra High. I selected High. I am pleased with its height. I put about 25 rounds through it with the scope and the only adjustment I made was to move the scope back further. Zeroing was the easiest I have ever done, break open the barrel and look down the barrel; then glance up and look through the scope. Adjust the elevation/windage until they are the same sight picture. Who needs a laser bore sight?

One of the benefits of a sighting in a single shot, for sure. That's a nice looking mount, compact enough for both the rifle and the scope. My kind of scope, too ;) .

Cooper, Thank you - Very Nice Looking Firearm.

I came to this discussion late, could not find specifics of the scope. Could anyone publish the details (make, model, magnification, ...)? As a new owner of an H015223, I'm looking for a scope. Glad to find DNZ has a model of Game Reaper that fits the H015. I have had a DNZ mount on my 10/22 for about a year, so I am sold on their quality.

Welcome to the forum Single shot. I think if it was me a scope with more magnification would be in order for a 223.

Thank you BigAl42. I liked the lines & look of Cooper's set-up, so wondered about the scope details

Now that I know DNZ makes a compatible mount, I am considering a 36 - 40mm objective with 3-9 or 4-12 magnification. Some fine, fine glass out there: Decisions, decisions.

Welcome from the TV, Oregon!
My Long Ranger .223 is scoped with Leupold 3.5-10x40mm. From my experience, you're in a good ball park for magnification relative to .223 performance.

Thanks for the great feedback. I've ordered the H015-243 and this DNZ mount. Do wish it was a bit lower but will see. Hope it works as good for me as it has for you! Mike
