No, but I haven't actually put a scope and rings on it. My Socom ejects to 2 o'clock with full power 175's and has not had an issue with the ARMS. On the other hand, my full size with the USGI barrel ejects closer to 1 o'clock and has occasionally had a hung case.It does fit tight Ave you had any extraction issues?

Good to know sounds like it might be a pretty good fit for my rifleNo, but I haven't actually put a scope and rings on it.

Yeah I had one of the aluminum versionsI had an extremely out of spec receiver on my Socom. Every mount I used had me chasing my zero. Most just wouldn’t work. I did the Sadlak fit kit and was contacted by a rep after they received my measurements. They were concerned that I may have done it wrong so we went through it together over the phone to confirm that I had done it correctly and that my receiver is way off. That was a spendy venture as me being me I had to get the titanium version to boot. Really the only issue I had with that was that ejected cases would hit it so I really only liked having a red dot on it. Then I discovered the Casm steel version and haven’t looked back. No walking zero and I haven’t had 1 contact by ejected cases. No exact round count but I know it’s over 800 with that mount and everything is still solid. I know it’s a no go for most because it ditches the rear sight but I’m not a traditionalist so it wasn’t a problem for me.
The tanker version doesn’t have the scout rail upfront just the plastic top coverI had a socom and what I had on it was the Aimpoint compm5b it’s a red dot with ballistic calculations for the .308 and .223 built in. It has quick release mount and went well on the front rail. I sold my socom to fund my m21 and I’m selling the comp m5b on here not pushing my sale just happened to be exactly what I had on my socom.
and theSadlak airborne mount is really the only way to go for the side mount. I had a Springfield mount it’s trash compared to the Sadlak
Yep, I don;t post hardly;(understatement), just come on and read once in a while. M-14 is too addictive.The Yankee (Forum member here, but doesn't visit much anymore) Dual Sight Mount is a mount I personally like, but it requires bedding of the receiver lugs, which is a process, not terribly difficult, but you have to do it. It has probably the best clearance if you want to shoot irons without removing the scope...
For sale- I have a whole bunch of these. Dual Sight Mount. Hardcoat anodized 7075 aluminum. Steel thumbscrew. The thumbscrew shoulder is the exact size as the hole through which it extends through in the mount, thereby being a structural part of the mount for lateral support in addition to...www.m14forum.com

It looks a little weird to some, not for everybody for sure, but worth mentioning. it puts the scope lower than my Fulton 'Brookfield Type' mount with ARMS22 low rings, and the view is limited mostly by the scope's objective bell, which is something to consider as well.
It also centered better than either the Bassett on any of my receivers, or the brookfield type on my SAI.
For a lot of people, it's not a viable option, but it is an option
