View Full Version : M1A Scout Scope Base

Quick question on the forward scope mount on the Springfield Scout.

I'd like to remove it & use a regular M1A handguard, all the screws back out easily. But since I may use an EER scope in the future, I want to be certain I can reattach the thing without going through leveling problems - not exactly my favorite part of scope mounting.

In addition to the bracket, there are two small screw on top that I presume center & level the mount, has anyone removed & reattached the base & can confirm?

I have a friend with a Scout. He took the scout mount off of it when it heat's up it wont hold zero. He bought a regular hand guard. He bought a Sadlak scope mount later on and is happy with it.
