  1. Leupold Mk 4 3.5-10x40 FDE (#67940)

    Optics
    I love this scope, Leupold dropped them a while back although I hear rumors they are still available to LE and Mil. They seem to run around $1400 for decent used units, NIB are commanding substantially more. I really like these scopes. The smaller objective is great for keeping the mounting...

    hello everybody I am waiting for my next M1a to come in and have already purchased a Sadlak airborne Mount for it. I was wondering what are a few good optics for an M1A Loaded. I have a Nikon Monarch 4-16 x 50 that I've had kicking around on a couple different rifles. Any other ideas?
