Will this scope and ring combo work?

    OK so this is going to be a very specific setup. I just purchased one of the new Ruger precision rifles and want to put my Vortex PST 4-16X50 scope on it. The scopes objective lense side is 2.26" in diameter so correct me if I'm wrong but in a flat top rifle I would need rings that are a little higher than 1.13" correct?

    So now for the specifics, the rifle has a flat top full length rail and I was wondering if I could fit medium rings that are .97" if I were to switch to an SLR solo ultra lite handguard with no top rail. Here's the rail

    I really would like to use medium rings to get the scope as low as possible but I don't really want to swap out the fail for something that just a round tube or anything like that.

    Anyone know if this would work at all? I'm not sure how much lower the SLR handguard without the top rail would be.

    Thanks for the input everyone.
    Oh and I did send out an email to SLR but figured I would get a faster response here.

    Most ARs i would use high rings anyway.That gets the scope at the right height
