M1A Scout scope mounts
This is my first post so please bear with me. First some history. My first rifle in the military was the M14 which I fell in love with. I was then issued a M16 in the 82d Abn. My sniper in the rifle platoon was just issued an M14 with a 6X scope at about the same time. I really missed the 14. I bought a Springfield M1A some 10 years ago and still love it. But I just bought an M1A Scout and love it also. I do not like the scope mount on the front handguard area and removed it and installed a standard front handguard. I am looking to use
a Red Dot sight like the Trijicon Doctor and mount it in the
vicinity of the rear iron sights. I looked at the 2nd gen springfield scope mount but did not like it. Can anybody recommend a light weight mount for the Trijicon Doctor red dot that will place the sight between the clip loading device and the rear sight. I do not want to remove the clip charging
device for putting on a scope mount.
