Hey guys, I am looking to put a scope on my M1A and I really like what I've heard and seen about the sadlak scope mount. However, I know this mount is low and I am clueless on what scope ring height to use to clear a 40-44mm hunting scope from making contact with anything. I like the low scope rings but I imagine I would at least need a medium or high scope rings right? Also open to any other suggestions concerning optic setups.

You will be fine with a set of low rings. The only thing I recommend is QD rings... it saves you a lot of headache if you have more than 1 optic

FYI, this is a Sadlak Airborne with LaRue Tactical Ultra-Low Mount Rings QD, LT719, and Vortex Optics; PST, 6-24x50 Scope.

That is a nice set-up. I have a NM SA with a Sadlak mount, weaver rings, and Vortex scope. I love the scope!

Lowest is not always bestest! Comfort is important. Too many people with long necks or fat cheeks use the lowest rings possible and have to press their face thru the stock.

And I like to be able to see the irons with scope in place.
