Question Different Scope Mount, M14/m1A

I just picked up a 'different' M14 scope mount.....It appears to mfg out of aluminum, it bolts to the side with one screw, which screw head is round with a rod through it so you can use that to tighen it up, and the mount has the horizontal and vertical keys? to fit the reciever grooves......the mount then hangs over the top of the reciever and has a M16 type (I was told)scope rail with a screw in the center of the rail. the mount is cast with these numbers on it "80063 SM-D-850390-1", This mount locks up great on a 'Springfield Armory,inc" reciever, I haven't tried it on my Chinese Norinco yet......Can anybody throw some light this way about who/what/when on this mount?.....thanks.....john......bobbike@vvm.com... .

Mounts and Rings

I am looking at purchasing a Nikon scope for my new M1A. what mount and rings should I look at. It will have a 1" tube. The main thing is I still want to be able to use the iron sights also. Any help would be great.
Thanks

Thanks from 2012 C14

Question Has Anyone

tried placing a M2 or M3 dot scope on the Leapers front hand guard top rail? I am thinking of a bright rifle flashlight on one side and a laser on the other since I am of the senior citizen tribe--meaning I enlisted in 1956--.

many thanks, Overbore

looking for an alternative

I recently (yesterday) brought a new Springfield Armory M1A home. The only modification that I was going to make was going to be to add one of these:

www. ultimak.com/M8.htm

(The link for the ultimak rail is not working, since I don't have 5 posts)

I plan on shooting with open sights for a while, but want the option of being able to add an optic with little hassle later down the line. Getting the plastic portion of the stock replaced with a functional rail is nice too. Problem is, the ultimak rail will not fit a medium weight barrel. Does anyone know of a similar product that will fit the the medium weight barrel of the S-A's "Loaded" M1A?

Thanks in advance.

I looked at the scope mount .pdf and didn't see whether the Sadlak mount allows the use of the iron sights. Can someone tell me if the Sadlak scope mount allows you to still use the iron sights? Thanks.

What you have is a Mounting Bracket Assembly, designed to mount a night vision sight AN/PVS-4 on the M14 rifle. The NSN is 5855-01-039-2833. Well made and fits extremely well on the rifle (unlike the SAI mount), it can be made to mate easily with an ACOG TA01 but you'll have to swap out the screw in the center of the rail, for one to fit the ACOG. You've also got to take the flat top adapter off the ACOG. The rail replicates the top u-shaped handle configuration of an M16, rather than a picatinny rail. It's designed so that the PVS-4 could be swapped easily between an M16 and the M14. Popular in Iraq with the army for mounting the ACOG rather than a longer scope on M14s, and doesn't come loose.

Angry Sadlac info

I put a Sadlac scope mount on my M14 and you can use the iron sights just fine... The scope mount is designed to be used that way ... How ever if you use the "low rings" on your mount and have a 50mm objective on your scope you might be out of luck...as the scope will block your view..

Are there any mounting issues with the Sadlak on a current production Springfield M1A?

Sadlak

I have an airborne mount on my current production SA M1A scout. It works fine. Sadlak is a great company to deal with, and they are very helpful. When you get the mount, get the receiver gauge set that comes with it. It allows you to measure your receiver and make sure it is in spec, and mates to the mount you received. He also will spec your receiver for you and custom make a mount to fit.
