I know we have discussed the problems mounting scope mounts on late model Springfield's. On both of my Springfield's the receiver mounting hole is to far back or the stripper clip guide area is to far forward so when you try to mount it, it tilts forward because it hits the stripper clip guide area instead of having a small gap between the mount and the stripper clip guide area.
Has anyone with this problem successfully overcome this and mounted a Smith mount on theirs?
Would machining a couple hundredths off the back of the mount take care of the problem?
Warbird or (Ted?) Brown, have either of you ever dealt with this?
