Made in U.S.A.
This is by far the lowest, most
stable optic mount available for the M-14 / M1A, and since it replaces the
entire handguard, it does not require a new or modified handguard. The 1913
style (Picatinny/Weaver) rail sits lower than the factory iron sights,
providing a better, more natural cheek weld for rapid target acquisition and
natural point of aim, without the need for a comb riser. Now for the first time
ever, you can co witness the factory M-14/M1A iron sights with tube bodied,
reflex sights such as Aimpoint or Trijicon Tripower. The entirely unobstructive
mount can remain in place whether or not you're using optics. The forward
positioning allows faster targeting with better field of view, very forgiving
eye relief, greater mounting versatility, and full access to the receiver
mechanism and stripper clip guide with optics in place. The rifle can be easily
and completely field stripped without removing the mount or the optic.
No-gunsmithing installation - the
M8 mount can be installed in the field by anyone who can read the instructions
and use the supplied Allen wrenches. Fits standard weight M-14 and M1A barrels
only. Works as a drop-in installation with any wood or synthetic stock.
Completely CNC machined from super strong 6061-T6 aluminum, bead blasted and
Mil Spec hard anodized for a matte black finish that will hold up to years of hard
use. The barrel clamps and recoil lug are made of 4142 chrome/molly steel with
a satin black phosphate finish. This is the mount that should have come with
the M-14 from the beginning.
UltiMAK - Take your best shot
*Compatibility: The UltiMAK M8 mount
fits only standard, GI spec barrels. In the current Springfield line-up, the
compatible models are; M1A Standard, M1A Scout Squad, SOCOM 16, and SOCOM II.
The "Loaded Standard" and all of their "Match" and
"Tactical" models have heavier-than-standard barrels, which will not
allow M8 mount installation. Chinese M1A clones have standard barrels and fit
nicely with the M8 mount. If your M-14 or M1A does not fit any of the above
descriptions, you should call the manufacturer and ask if the barrel is of standard
M-14 outer diameter specs, including the size and location of the op-rod guide.
As a side note; the original U.S. military production "National
Match" M-14s had standard weight barrels. Among the differences was that
the bore tolerances were halved.
