Before and after shots of the AR with new grip, charging handle, scope and compensator.
Looking good. But I've a quick question...is your upper a monolithic upper? I ask because of the way you have your scope mounted. It looks like it's mounted half on the upper receiver and half on the top rail of your handguard. If it's a monolithic upper you shouldn't have any problems. If it's a railed free floating handguard, you'll want to move your scope mount back fully onto the upper receiver. If you don't you could have sighting issues because of the flex or movement you'll get out of the handguard when shooting.
It's a mono but even if it was a free float he wouldn't have a problem. If it was a non free floated then it would cause problems. The reason being on a non free floated HG it would interfer w/ barrel movement.
Its does however seem to be mounted a bit to far foward.........
Do you get enough eye relief to get a good sight picture with the scopes current location?
Mj, you are correct it is a monolithic.
The relief thru the scope is perfect for me, plus i have been using a brass catcher that works great with this set up. The only thing I may change is the top mounted fast fire II to a 45 offset to bring it closer to the barrel.
Is the mount a little too far up?
Okay all you. You have me second guessing myself. Although I don't have problem with the mounting I will However move it back a bit and give It a second try. Hopefully I still like the results.
Thanks for all the input and observations gentlemen.
You're just confused and thought it was an M14 scout mount .
Have you had a chance to try it out yet?
No, I have not done the remount yet. Just returned from Iraq yesterday and having a little decompress time. Will do the swap this weekend and give her a go.
Keat, not yet... Just got back for Iraq yesterday. Will this weekend.
Yes definitely! Welcome home, Rellek2020!
Thanks Keat. Great to be back
Thank you also Quentin
