Finally got the chance to get my scope set up mounted and sighted in this past weekend. I had gotten the scope rings, the mount and the cheek riser as Christmas presents (from Mrs. Claus no less). Matched these with an older Leupold scope that I had been using on one of my AR-15s. Once I got it zeroed I think I did OK. Really couldn't be happier with this set up. Here's the details and pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Rifle: USGI parts kit on Fulton Armory receiver
Scope: Leupold Mark 2 3-9x40mm
Rings: Leupold PRW Perma-Rings Weaver Style
Mount: Bassett Machine Picatinny Rail Low profile model
Cheek Riser: Bradley Tactical M1A/SOCOM Cheek Rest
Place: Spring Valley Public Shooting Range (SW Ohio)
Distance: 100 yards from bench with rest
Target: SR-1 100 yard reduced target (10 ring is ~3.25" diameter)
Ammunition: XM80 Ball (LC12) 147 Gr. FMJBT
Shots: 20

First-rate stick. As others have stated the stock is amazing.

Excellent job of filling up the 10-ring. Nice shooting.

Nice stock and rifle. Filling up 10 ring with 147 gr ball ammo is good stuff too.

Thanks guys. Appreciate the compliments on both the stock and my shooting. Wish I could capture the true beauty of the wood. In the sunlight it literally glows. Love it!

Very nice neighbor! Did you build the rifle yourself?

Hi Deacon,
Yes, this was my very first build. I have a close machinist/gunsmith friend who walked me completely through the process but made me do everything myself from installing and indexing the barrel to lapping in the bolt. It was a great experience and I've built two more since. The best part is seeing the performance once I'm done. Makes me smile every time I fire it.
Cheers,
MD

That is a NICE Stock! I am so glad I don't have it because I would not shoot with it! I think it looks that good!
