If you find a way to mount it I'd sure appreciate knowing how!
From the Armament Technology Website
Mount Base Requirement MIL-STD-1913 “Picatinny Rail”
Attachment US Army Torque Knob
Windage and Elevation 0.25 mil detent zeroing adjustments.
Line of Sight Identical to ELCAN Optical Sight approximating M16/AR15 iron sight
Ballistic Compensation M240/M249: Blended 7.62/5.56 NATO
M4: 5.56 NATO (62gr FMJ)
I haven't had a chance to see yet, but I think it'll mount to a picatinny rail. So, any of the mounts out there so theoretically work. I just hope that it isn't too high, though.
I love how those got surplused out. I tried to get those for my Plt's SAW's before I retired with no luck cause they were like $800 in the supply system. No offense to you or your dept. but it just shows the US Army has a long way to go before they get their supply issue's worked out. We could not afford them at the time, but Uncle Sugar figured he could DRMO them for free to some one else.....
Yeah, it doesn't seem like the government makes a lot of sense most of the time. Unless there's something else that I'm not seeing, the only major problem with the sight is the bent knob and a little wear, so I don't know why they got rid of them.
