Thanks for all the help.

Here it is. Thanks for all the help with all my questions the past 2 weeks. All I have left to do is put in the Schuster gas plug in and I'm ready to hit the range. Hopefully I can get out and shoot it next week.

You know the next step is to post pics of the targets. She looks good does that cheek rest adjust upward?

The cheek rest goes up, but I wish it was back farther.

You have plenty of room to move the scope forward you may have to adjust yourself to fit the stock. I would take polacks advice JIC. If it where me I would shoot it as is first before swapping the plug just to get a feel for how she's going to shoot.

Once you take her out another series of questions will pop up. This is normal, document ammo and other specifics. While you are at it go ahead and order another one, no sense in wasting quality time.

Thanks from Dougboffl

I wasn't going to be that blunt, my rule of thumb is back of scope even with the trigger. But I have many weird little things I do that are not really written in stone.

Thanks from Rich D

Thanks for all the help.

Even though the stock does have an adjustable heel piece, the best practice is to mount the optic as close to the bore as possible.

That is a unique use for the LT104. I'd personally use a set of high quality Picatinny rings, which will likely even be available with QD throw levers. It's not like you'd be able to swap the scope back and forth between this rifle and an AR.

I started with normal Trijicon scope rings and the scope was way too far forward so I got the LaRue and turned it backwards. I need to move it an inch forward. I just think they could make the adjustable comb an inch or 2 longer towards the back.

I'm having a hard time understanding your problem ;;;In my basic training we were told to get our eyeball as close to the rear sight as possible;;; which would make that about 2 _ 3 inches ;;; why are you putting your eyeball on the butt plate ???

Agreed... nothing wrong with blunt if it's sharing your personal experience.
May help someone else avoid the same mistake by giving the heads up, IMO.

That said, i'm with the rear eye glass being almost over the trigger on a 13 inch LOP.
That is what works for me but everbody has diffrent physique so whatever works best, i guess.

Please update with range targets. We be liking those.

Thanks from chief on one

Well if blunt is what you want, lose the fancy LaRue mount order 3 different height rings. Use the ones that get the scope the lowest send the other 2 back. The lower the scope the better off you will be period.

That does look very tall & very set back.

Remember to mount (setup) everything with the rifle in the same position(s) you'll shoot. If bench only, look thru during install with the rifle on a bench and you seated. If you'll shoot hi-power try all three positions: standing, seated/kneeling & prone (some of the variable here is compensated for with the adjustables in that stock). For hunting, shoulder it or whatever you'll do.

If you go with what you've got pictured, be careful you don't get scope-brow (knocked in the eyebrow by the scope during recoil) on the first few shots.

Thanks from chief on one
