I added the Lyman 17 AHB it is a little lower sight than the AML. I also use Lee Shavers globe inserts for BPCR. They are super fine and designed for 1000 yards.
Either way you would probably need to shim that rear sight.
I shimmed my Knight MK85. I put a 17AHB on it and a Williams PF peep. I added a Gib Lock screw so I could loosen the peep sight in the field and adjust the sight to the shot. So if the shot is 125 I set it for 125. If the shot is 150 I set it for 150.If it is 72 yards I ca set it for that. I have it sighted in out to 250 yards but I don't take a first shot at game past 150.
Since the sights are raised I needed to raise the cheek pad. I got this one on amazon cheap.
This is a picture of my son shooting out to 250 yards.
This is a target that he was dialing in his sight for 250.
In this picture you can see the dark spot on the target is the same as shots #7 and 8 on the paper target. There is actually two hits on the steel there.
I have set up two rifles like this. The easy thing for me was the williams FP sight is easy to work with. My receiver on my two rifles are flat so shimming is no big deal. For yours it will be harder but doable.
If it were me I would get a williams FP sight that is flat like mine. Then I would buy a weaver scope base. I would have the scope base milled flat then drill and tap it. Then mount the FP sight to the weaver base. You can either mill it flat or use a sander to flatten it out and reduce some height. It depends on what you are comfortable doing.
