    what mounts have you got? and what objective size are you trying to mount? may be cheaper to buy new lower mounts rather than replace the rail, as the rail is not all that high and any mounts will require bases. I have two Howas, one with the rail and a large objective scope, the other with Leupold bases and low rings and a 42mm scope that clears the barrel/receiver by about 3mm both rifles mount easily and neither seem too high or low .

    I use the Talley mounts sold by Weatherby. I think Talley makes them in Low, Medium and High, but Weatherby only resell the Medium and High. (In any case, I have the Mediums, which fit my 2.5-10x42 fairly well.)

    Cheers,

    I don't like the rail either and swapped it for a one piece Game Reaper mount and ring.
    Highly recommended on the Howa.
