Add weight to the stock, problem solved.
Only half joking. If she complains the rifle is top heavy with a 1" tube 12 mag scope then maybe it's more a problem with the overall balance of the rifle including front/back? When on the rifle I doubt most folks could feel the difference between a 3-12x44 and a 3-9x40.
