Is the orange dovetail?  Those are designed for the bottom of the scope (as original equipment).

You may want to look at ADM.  They have proper topside dovetails and blocks you need.

Older 9.25a were a bit longer than the current models. If you order the current narrow bar (Vixen)will match the current scope.

 

Retailers may still  have the older/longer bars. When i ordered the GGE bar for my 8,25 the retailer sent the old version and by golly it was too long.

Is that a 9.25 Evolution you're trying to mount it on?
