Found a solution.
Leupold Rifleman Detachable See-Thru High Rings (on Zon for under $20). Yea!
These are narrow rings so they did not have a big foot print and since they are Leupold's I was not worried about lots of torque.
AND I can still see iron sights. Big Yea!
Will test it out soon (and advise only if a prob).
