Finally got my Dream M-14 set-up the way I wanted it. It took about 2 years , mostly cause of finances . But it was worth it.

Here are my specs (simple):

Springfield M1A ( Standard)
Bush Barrel 18"
Springfield Muzzle Break
ARMS # 18 Mount
ARMS # 22M68 w/ full spacer
WHAMO CAMO Tiger Stripe Stock

Very nice. Good looking rifle.

Does that setup allow cowitness with the irons? If not, no big deal you can remove the aimpoint in seconds. Just curiuos.

I am also wondering how much head raise it takes to use the red dot. I can see a true cheekweld is out, but since there is no magnification, is it easy to just lift head a fraction or is it totally off the stock?

Hi , no see thru w/ iron sights but as you pointed out the sight comes off quick with the 22M68 Mount. As far as cheek weld , I'm very tall with a long neck and the stock is basically on the lower part of my cheek and my head and eyes are straight , which is the way I have it with my M4.

Very Cool !

...but why use the ARMS spacer? wouldn't it work better without the spaer, with the aimpoint lower?

just wondering.

Like I said I have a long neck and the spacer puts the sight exactly where I like it.
