    Default A.R.M.S Scope mount on the M1A

    A.R.M.S Scope mount on the M1A
    I bought this one use from a board member on another site.
    The side mounting bolt was useless and had no threads. I had an extra salted away.
    The rest of the mount was in good condition.

    There has been a lot of discussion about the A.R.M.S Scope mount on the M1A Springfield rifles.
    They were originally engineered to fit the M-14 rifle.
    The Springfield Armory female slots and the tapped 12-32 side mount holes were out of specification on many of the rifles.
    The side mount slots are still capable of holding the mount securely.
    There are a few modifications necessary to mate the mount and rifle.








    Now use your favorite rings and scope.
    Good shooting

    Yeah Gunny, that's a great mount. Thanks for the instructions. I mounted mine last year and I like it better than the Leatherwood.

    I opted for the Smith mount.

    Be sure you read the side screw torque spec correctly; it's in inch-pounds, not foot pounds! You cannot believe the number of requests I've had over the years from someone needing a new screw because they misread the spec and snapped the screw off!
