What are my options for scope mounts?

I really dig the Smith Enterprises parts, but at $275 and $325, that's a bit too much for me.

I know Springfield has one, A.R.M.S. has one, but that's about it.

Any reccomendations? Any horror stories, warnings to keep away from a particular mount (and why)??

Many thanks.

Go with the Sadlak, or the Smith, spend the $$$, If you can use weaver rails this is the best deal ANYWHERE

Smith or Brookfield, if you can find one. Only consider ARMS if you can't get a Smith or Brookfield.

SA are crap.

This is the deal of deals. I already have the p/n 2006 NSN mount and just couldn't pass up getting this weaver mount, as well. Just do it.

I had one of the cheap china ones I pick up at a gun show for $30. It is a copy of the Springfield inc. Used lots of lock tight to keep it on. When I didn't use the lock tight it would start to loosen up after a few rounds.

Only took it out once after I locktighted it. Seam to hold the 0 fine for the 1st 30 rounds. Till my last 10 rounds. Then it started moving to the right. Not sure if it was the mount or the rifle getting hot.

Have a ARMS on order now.

I bought the smith enterprise mount 2006 and rings 7002. for having no gunsmith knowledge it was installed in no time.

I emailed him with a couple questions. I forgot my email leaves a signature(with my name and phone number) he called me within 10min answered all my questions. i would suggest Smith Enterprise

Smith Enterprises is good people, high quality products, "family" old school service. Their mounts and rings are the best. They know the M14.
