    bought a M1a loaded w/ 20 barrel. bought vortex crossfire 6 x 18 x 44, vortex rings and 4 different mounts.
    started with the high dollar mount, Sadlik, very well made, but that was all, couldn't get even close to zero.
    ended up with the third cheapest, UTG. went together smooth and clean. mounted scope and was zeroed in 5 clicks windage and 7 clicks up.

    I'm looking into buying a mount, have you shot with it yet? Does it hold zero well? What other brands didn't work for you?

    So far, I have just shot at the indoor range using 12 inch targets. 5 shot group 2 3/4 spread close to 4 1/2 in. Used a front sand bag. This was with the utg mount. Sadlak, us steel and an aluminum air soft made for the m1a could not give me enough vertical up to even see the laser sight. There is something about the way the stripper clip is milled that makes one mount work better than the other. Best price was Amazon. Com. I've only put 60 rounds through it, really want to go where I can get some real distance 300 to 500 yards or more. I now have added the bipod from Springfield.

    forgot to mention scope rings, scope came with vortex rings, looked a little on the lite weight side. Burris extreme Tactical, low profile. not mater which mount I tried, could not use the iron sights, no biggie.
