Thank you Black Friday at the Orlando Gun Show. Added a Vortex Crossfire II 2-7X32 to my M1A Scout Squad. At 2X, it's perfect free hand from the shoulder, and at 7X, it's still clear with proper eye relief from a rest. Will likely get to zero it next weekend. So far, I am very happy. The rings have witness holes so that the iron sights are still functional. Not that I can hit anything with them and my eyes; that's why I bought the scope...

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

That is nice! If I were to get an M1A, it would be that model.

Make sure you inspect the mount to ensure that the operating rod is not rubbing anywhere. If it is, that’s bad for accuracy. File down the scope mount where the contact is and hit it with some cold blue.

Thanks Tony. I am going to look up your accuritizing tips (shimming, etc.) and give the gun a thorough going over.
