I may be mistaken, but I believe the SAI M21 Tactical model you listed "SA9121" has a scope mount already attached.

You should not remove the receiver from the stock of a bedded rifle.

Nice instructions you posted, great pictures too. I used my I-phone hot spot and went on line and used Sadlak's instructions to do all mine while in my shop.
All my Sadlaks fit perfect on my Polytech ,LRB ,Rock Ola and even on the Armscorp.
The two M1A's weren't even close. Could have sent the mounts to Sadlak to have them modified, but I ended selling the M1A's .

i think i have the same rings set up on my mount!!!. they were cheap but i haven't had accuracy issues AFTER i installed my Sadlak mount. i had a springfield armory mount that kept shifting. finally broke down and bought a mount that WORKS!!!! it's easy to install. Thanks for the pics that'll help future shooters.

I was thinking of using my Dremel tool...
i tend to suggest that you stay away from using a dremel unless you have the steady hands of a surgeon. ive seen way too many people take off way too much metal. once it's gone it's gone forever.

Congrats on your NM M1A! I will clarify my earlier post.

You should only remove the receiver from the bedded stock once a season to fully clean and lube your rifle to prevent the bedding from wearing out prematurely. If you are going to install a scope mount, I would plan on doing all of you maintenance at the same time.

Install scope mount, clean rifle, lube components, install anything else(FDS dummy selector etc).

If you are a new owner to the M1A family, you should check out Tony Ben's videos on maintaining and lubing your new rifle.

Good Luck!

Thankyou Reiles, i think i'm going to try to remove the stripper clip with the rifle in the stock. i could be wrong but it seem's the resaon most people drive out the pin from the bottom is they don't want to mare the clip on the top where it would be visible. well i could careless about the clip. it's got to go, mared or not. i will be careful but i don't plan on useing it again.

Your gun, your choice, but trust me, pushing from the inside is not done to avoid marring the finish. Too many people assume that things are recommended for unimportant reasons but in this case it ain't so.

The proper process is to push the pin from the inside of the receiver out toward the top of the rifle, this is because the inside end of the hole is sometimes burred or smaller because of how they assemble the rifle (and in some cases because the bolt smears the metal in that area). If the pin sticks then you will be pounding pretty hard from the top and you might crack the receiver.

thankyou RAMMAC for the heads up, i will be careful and take it slow, and if i run into any snaggs i guess i will be driving to kerrville soon and see one of the top smiths.

when i sent it back to sai for the adjustable stock i asked them to install the airborne mount and they said we no longer offer that service, wish i knew or they would have offered to remove said clip, oh well leason learned

Scope Rings to Use

I have a NM on the way and want to scope it.

I am leaning towards the Sadlak Airborne for the mount.

I know that I need to use care in separating the action from the glass bed.

I will put a Leupold Mark 4 LT/T 6.5 - 20 x 50 on it also.

Can anyone suggest the best rings to use with this setup?

Thank You

The stripper clip is a wedge shaped item and can only be removed from one side. I suggest you call Springfield to find the direction it comes out ( unless Sadlak includes that in its directions) , I think it is from left to right but that is just a guess. Call first, you do not want to break it or the mount will not work.

Incorrect.. if you had read the original post and looked at the pictures provided.. the stripper clip guide is removed from Right to Left and it's retaining pin is driven from inside to out.. the original post is excellent and clearly walks you step by step through the process with pictures.

Did you require a cheek riser? Would one of the leather original type cheek rests be high enough?
