This mount placed the red dot a pretty good bit high as some of you mentioned in another post by me.


This is the best I could do to lower it with what I had laying around. (If in fact I really did lower it). anyhows it is now a lot more secure. Opinions welcome.

Good point, but to me it just gives a better field of view.

Agreed. Unlimited eye relief. Use it.

ETA: it appears you did lower it though.

I just know when we were in Iraq we mounted our CCO's over the receiver on our M4's. It just feels comfortable to my eyes there.

Why would you put a rail on a rail ? Chin weld ? Half of arfcom bitches because a Knights rail is 3 grams heavier than a piece of tin foil and you show up mounting rails on rails . Put the red dot on the rail.

I personally am more interested in why he's putting a POS Chinese red dot on a +$2,000 rifle.

It wasn't a "precision rig" - even with a Smith "NSN" optic mount.

Just a guess, that Sage stock has to add at least of pound or more to the rifle?

Oh, so the height above bore doesn't appear about the same as the EBR?


You experts amaze me.

Link Posted: 12/18/2016 8:03:48 PM EST
Were it mine, I'd mount the red dot directly to the Sage stock. The mount you've placed over the receiver just adds weight without significant benefit.

Just my opinion, and it's worth what you paid for it.

Who claimed to be an expert?

You asked a stupid question in the OP. There are multiple issues with the mount in your OP, aside from HOB.

Aside from that, how a belt fed is employed is likely different than how an M1A is employed.
Link Posted: 12/18/2016 8:05:26 PM EST
Low mount directly to rail in front of receiver.

It's a red dot, no need to have it at a "proper eye relief" distance.
You'll drop weight, have the lowest possible mount and as an added bonus, unobstructed access to the bolt & chamber for clearing malfunctions, cleaning and uninterrupted ejection.

Seems like a no brainer to me.
Link Posted: 12/18/2016 8:08:52 PM EST
That's one ugly rifle, maybe the worst I've ever seen. Put it back to original stock configuration and use the irons. Or sell the monstrosity.

Yes, remove the small riser in the QRP mount.

On the M14... if just for the weight savings move the red dot to the hand guard rail.

This,
 If I owned a M1A I would have to keep the wood stock.

If I had 2 the other would have a sage stock with a leupold M3A.

If you get a mount a little higher you can shoot from the hip.

The "results" were what they had in stock. Otherwise, the M110 would not have been developed.

OP already has an AR10. The Mk14 is a cool gun. That's plenty of reason to have one in the safe.

it should be forward mounted on the rail. direct line of sight.
