So I have a Socom II on the way, and I've got a T1 laying around, so why not?  Its presently equipped with just the factory mount.  Anybody know what this will get me?  Is it necessary to change mounts?  I'm thinking I'll prefer full cowitness, having not seen the two in the same room together yet.  Anybody know which mount will accomplish that?

Irons will be blocked with the factory scout rail.

Replace the original mount and hand guard with either the UltiMAK M8 or M14.ca SHG and you will be able to co-witness irons through your T-1.

You mean the
Midwest Industries M1A/M14 Mini Dot Mount for Aimpoint T1 Micro?
The way I read it offers lower 1/3 cowitness.  I wonder if that's gonna make me happy.  Its a lot cheaper way to go, but I'm used to full cowitness on my AR's and AK's, and given that the M1A sights are supposed to be some of the best out there, I'd hate to obscure them.  Anybody running this setup want to tell us about it?

yeah. I cant find anyone currently running the setup.

Utilmak is the way to go, IMO.

I ran an H1 and Ultimak for a while before I sold the gun and the H-1 (separately)

Second on the pics, please. My socom will be enroute soon and Ihave my Ultimak.

Only 1 I took before selling the M8. I've got a MI RMR mount now. I moved the RMR to the rifle after 1 magazine on a suppressed FNP covered the lens in powder residue.

Not to 'jack but how does the m8 attach? To the barrel or the stock?

Replaces the handguard and clamps to the barrel.
Link Posted: 7/21/2013 6:14:19 PM EDT

Has anyone "cooked" an optic from attaching to the barrel or too close to the barrel? The Midwest Ind. mount attaches directly to the barrel and looks like it get too hot...

UltiMAK M8





The SHG from M14.ca also clamps to the barrel, but unlike the M8, it utilizes thin clamps.
The SHG is lighter than the M8 and it dissipates heat quickly.



Both dissipate heat better than the Springfield mount and others using the same basic SAI method.
These fit standard weight/contour/profile barrels only, no clamp-on mounts for non-standard barrels.

Thanks again H2O_MAN. I'm not real crazy about the SAI scope mount.
I remember ready that if you're making aimed shots you really don't have any worries about frying your electronics, just stay away from any mag dumps!
There is a shot timing chart on m14forum.com, I believe.

You are welcome. Aimpoint red dots will handle the heat, EOTech and others not so much.

I believe the formula for NOT frying optics is three seconds per shot, per m14forum.com.
