I am also a fan of the m1a. Own 2 myself. As for what I think is one of the best mounts on the market, here is what i would recommend. They are not cheap, however by once cry once. These are built to military standards, and worth every penny.

The titanium, and steel are tough as a main battle tank. Aluminum is great as well to cut weight.

Here is a little in depth info.

Hope that helps.

This is a very popular and extremely sturdy scope mount for the M1A. It's also quite a bit cheaper than the Sadlak. I love mine and it works exactly as advertised. Highly recommend.

If you haven't bought already, I REALLY endorse the Bassett Machine Mount. I use the High mount so I can co-witness my iron sights, a very important feature if needed quickly. Incidentally I have 2 M1A's and 4 Bassett mounts: 2 scopes and 2 eotechs. Swapping back and forth, maintaining the pairs for each rifle, I don't lose zero.

I use a Hi-lux base on my M1A with a shell deflecter. Been using it for years without a hitch!

yeah, I have been using M1A for years and I mounted Leupold scope on it with cheap scope rings and mounts and they served their purposes before my lovely wife gave me Remington 700 SPS for a birthday gift. So what I was trying to say is that, though, expensive ones can do the job, but there are cheap ones that can also serve you the purpose. If you wish to find out more about some cheap ones,feel free to look at the link i attached here. My buddy gave it to me when I was in the same position you are right now, and I hope you will pass it along. I wish you good luck.

from Nic.

Go with the Bassett... great heritage in the company and a magnificent product. Plus, it's made in TEXAS!

Kenny, glad you found a good mount.
I've never owned an M1A, but shot ones that friend's have and shot them at the beginning of my Army career. Have owned several Garands, and do get to shoot M1A's often, just never bought one of my own.


So I wasn't familiar with the Bassett or the others mentioned.
I was going to suggest checking out Ultimak, as I have several of those on Mini-30's, and I believe they make one for the M1A as well.
Con is you have to use a long eye relief scope.
Pros are mounting nice and low, so you don't have a chin weld instead of a cheek weld, out of the way of the bolt and action and rear sight, increased peripheral vision, helps stiffen the barrel, and acts as a heat sink drawing some heat away from the barrel in sustained firing.

Sandog : that is a nice collection of rifles. Looks like you have a great place to go shooting.. Looking at the first picture leaves to wonder if you guys are shooting clay pigeons with the Rifles ;-) ?

No clay pigeons. I wish I was that good ! The clay thrower just happens to be in the background. We were shooting at gongs I have at 200 and 300 yards.
It is nice up at the range, my little parcel I bought from my Aunt, she has 340 acres there, uses it for fall pasture for the horses and mules. I can hike and hunt all of that, Mule deer, Antelope and Hungarian Partridge there, ( and Rattlesnakes), and Elk move through on the upper part.
She also has 660 acres in a lower section, the West Gallatin River flows through it, and the main Gallatin River borders it. Great Whitetail and Pheasant hunting, Ducks and Geese, Sandhill Cranes, Fox, Badgers, and the occasional Moose, but the real draw for me down there is German Brown Trout. When I first went down to this little side slough, I saw dozens of huge fish milling around, and my first thought was they were Carp that came upstream form the Missouri river. After landing one, I found out that they were Brown's, and I've been going back there for years in the summer to catch one or two.
Some pics of trout, my wife glassing for elk before bow season, and some of the deer and antelope my Aunt has taken off of her land over the years:
