I was wondering if I put a Vortex on an 18" M1a will it make the same tuning fork noise as the Vortex on my 16" AR15?
Thanks

Mine do if I tap on the exterior with a metal letter opener.
It does not make a ringing noise when fired.

I have one on my Scout. I've never heard a tuning fork noise...

Check the inside, by chance are you getting bullet strikes on the tines?

No it isnt a bullet strike.. Ask around on the AR15 forums they all do it.. I have one on a 11.5in barrel that is anoying as hell..
Thanks

Sounds like an issue with ARs only.

Not with my 18" ADCO built SPR-ish rifle it isn't... Dunno. I've never read that before, Skeeter, and I've never heard ringing with either of my Vortexes, in 7.62 OR 5.56mm.
