OK, I have a new M1A and I'm new to this rifle. I want to scope it and I have a SA 3rd generation mount (I know there are better ones out there, but its what I have for now) I also have a Burris Fullifield 3-9 scope. I got the mount on with no problems, but I don't have rings and don't know what kind to get for this mount and scope? Any help would be appreciated.
Springfield Scope mount will use either Picatinny or Weaver rings
Nearly any old Weaver type rings will do you great and save some $$$$!
Just be sure you align the scope mount front and rear mounts to follow the bore before going to the rings.
If your scope mount base is not true, you can run out of windage without having your scope centered!
