Where do you do your shooting? There are several of us here in Utah, we may be able to get together and help you get familiar with the rifle.

Great pics, Thank you Redleg. I've got a scout squad with an Eotech on the fore end factory rail. Has anyone used this Sadlak setup to mount their Eo 3.25 magnifier on a quick-detach mount? If so, what else should I keep in mind considering space between the red dot optic and the magnifier, or additional condiderations for eye relief with that magnifier? I looked at Larue Tactical and was surprised I didn't see anything like this; and the factory Springer mount has this giant gap in the center of it, in which I'm lacking confidence. I went to my local tac shop and they recommended going with a full frontal shroud which would mean full monty weight, and I'd of course rather keep it balanced back at the receiver if possible.

Superb "How-To" write-up!

My Sadlak Airborne is arriving by snail mail any day now and I look forward to putting it to use.

Great instructions, I think that even I can follow them.

One question, does the channel on the upper surface of the mount allow for use of the iron sights if the need arose, such as a scope problem?

That all depends on the scope more than anything else. If you have a large objective bell (the front of the scope) then no, the bell will block your view. I think a 50mm objective lens will work but I know a 56mm lens is too big.

Thanks. The scope I am thinking of using is a 4omm so I should be okay here.

Hmmm... on my newest M14 I'm having to "shave down" the Airborne mount's stripper key guide so that it "slides" into the stripper guide mount. Anyone have suggestions on what hand tool is best suited to shaving off some "soft steel"?

I was thinking of using my Dremel tool...

Mine was a bit tight too, I used a hand file and a stone to finish it off.

That hand file suggestion worked like a charm Rammac. Thanks again.

I have one last question regarding my Sadlak Airborne mount installation... the space between the mount itself and the angled face (where the stripper guide was once installed)... how much space should exist between the mount and this angled face when the mount is installed?

Seems I am reading conflicting reports as some installers state their mount is flush with the angled face whereas others merely state "you should see a little daylight" between the two parts and then there's Sadlak instructions themselves kind of vague altogether (regarding this particular question anyways).

Ring hieght will also be a factor here as the lower the rings, the more the objective bell will get in the way.

Also, the more elevation you use on the rear, the more it will be obstructed by the objective bell.
