    Aimpoint Patrol (pulled off my SCAR) going to probably going to do it like the US Army M14 EBR RI (in service 2008-2011) All I need is the Leupold Mark 4 3.5-10.

    Nice.

    Although, a 0 mag RDS seems like a waste on such a rifle. Thankfully, you seem to know that already.

    Buckeye I'm unfamiliar with that designation is that the one without any optics?

    Any concerns about either a.) the stability of that picatinny rail right over the operating rod? or b.) that picatinny rail being too far forward to offer a proper eye relief for the majority of scopes? It looks pretty far forward. That wouldn't be an issue with the Aimpoint, but could with a number of other scopes. It looks like even on Sage's website, most scopes are mounted elsewhere.

    The rail is super solid so i'm not concerned with that and the OP rod. I did get the Sage Cantilever mount that sits over the receiver. The problem is it requires the standard stripper clip guide. Before I this I had an Springfield M1A mount that used a different clip guide, and I've long since lost my standard clip guide. I will be calling Springfield in the morning to either pay for a new guide or maybe try and squirrel one out of them. I don't know yet just put her together about 2 hours ago when i got home. I still need to ROCKSET the flash hider. I'm the fourth owner of this chassis its been around my office more than Pamela Anderson has with Rockstars.

    I know all the former owners very well one of them is a writer for one of our rags. This was his deer rifle for a while. My former boss sold it to him, and ever since I also wanted it. I've talked to one of them who said it took his M1A (holy crap I just realized I bought HIS M1A too 6 years ago, and thats the M1A in the picture above) from a 2.5 inch gun down to much lower. I did test the MOA of the gun on a SIUS ASCOR (spelling not sure) SIUS AG system and got a print out of around 2.2-2.5 MOA using my 168 grain SMK reloads. Most research I have looked indicates the Sage chassis cuts the MOA almost in half. So time will tell on the accuracy.

    PS still waiting for either OLDVET GLOCKMAN10MM to chime in saying "Nothing beats a good old oak or mahogany tree!"
