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).
I set mine with just the slightest gap with just a bit of light showing through, before setting the torque on the rear.

After setting the torque, the gap closes. YMMV.

Thanks from RAMMAC

Awards Showcase

When I installed my mount, I followed their instructions and allowed a small gap between the mount and the angled face once I had hand tightened the side bolt. When everything was finished, there is no gap. The mount touches the angled face. The wedge touches at the top of the dovetail cut and that pulls the mount against the angled face.

I've found that it helps get the mount properly tightened if you tighten the side bolt and the two screws in the wedge alternately, just a little at a time and wiggle the mount a little between each time that you tighten them. This helps ensure that the mount is settled tightly against the side of the receiver and on the angled face.

Thanks for the pics. You did a good job and your effort will be put to use as I just put in an order to Saklak for an optic package. Good job!

I ordered an Airborne mount, Leupold Mark 4 steel rings and a Mk 4 MR/T 1.5-5 M2 with CMR2 reticle. They have an excellent price on their optics package and Dee is one classy lady to help you out.

Thanks from RightHand

Thank You to Redleg155:

Your thread was excellent and the write with photos helped me install the mount with confidence.

Sidenote:

Sadlak should also have something similar on their website as it would increase sales dramatically.

Also I had another scope mount and it was garbage compared to the Sadlak 101 Airborne model. I also used the inspection kit supplied with the unit and found my Springfield M1A Scout to be within USGI specs.

Once again Thank you for a great how to thread.

Sincerely,

KAP

Picked up a Sadlak steel mount at the local gun show (West Springfield MA) yesterday. Later this week I plan on disassembling my M1A and working on installing this mount.

The guy suggested the Leupold Mk IV (4) scope mounts as the best to use. I will be mounting a Springfield Armory 6x40 Government Model 7.62mm that they (SA) had offered as a special a number of years ago.

I'm very happy with my aluminum Sadlak mount on my standard. Installed as advertised. Now to decide what to put on top.
