BKL mounts are a good choice as they put your scope dead centre. The offset with mounts made to suit a narrow rail will be small and of little impact on the setup but every little helps!
I also see that BKL now do a lower 30mm mount, well they call it a low, it gives a scope centre height of about 1.65" on a BSA.
Or some fine custom ones from Rick Arden.
