Much better than they were when they first came out. Screws seem to be tougher and didn't strip out....

Leatherwood M14/M1A all steel mount with windage adjustment

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 14, 2011
I purchased a Leatherwood M14/M1A all steel mount with windage adjustment for my M1A scout rifle. This was the first time I had any dealing with scope mounts for the M1A rifle and was surprised at the number of mounts offered at such a wide variety of prices. I selected the Leatherwood M14/M1A all steel mount because of recommendations provided by the store where purchased and based upon Hi-Lux, Inc. ad indicating 37 years of experience mounting scopes on the M-14 rifle.
The Leatherwood M14/M1A all steel mount with windage adjustment has three primary components:
1. clip guide replacement (1)
2. Front Bracket (7)
3. Rail (11)
These three major components must be aligned correctly when interconnected on the receiver to form the actual mounting surface for the scope. For the average shooter this presents a number of difficulties because of the alignment geometries of each component. As assembly of the kit progressed securing the rail to the front bracket I found the flathead screw to be to long and the screw bore into the top of the receiver.
I then placed the shimmes provided with the kit under the front bracket and this resolved the problem of the screw digging into the top of my receiver. Following the instructions closely I managed to complete the assembly of the Leatherwood M14/M1A mount. I then went to the range to try out this new rifle, scope mount and scope. What a disappointment.
The first two rounds fired were 6ft to the right of the target and 3ft high. Not...

M1A mount

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 2, 2010
Plan on spending some time to mount this unit. The M1A was really not designed for a scope mount so add-on mounts are a compromise. Plan on replacing the allen head set screws as the are soft Chinese metal and your wrench will strip out in the screw if any pressure is used. Other components seem to be of good steel. I went to Tru-Value and for less than 2 dollars replace the two supplies set screws.
Pros: The windage adjustment will allow you to align your scope without difficulty. After 60 rounds fired the mount remains secure. The price is low and works fine. I have tried other mounts and had them shoot loose, this one works.
Pros: Stays secure. Will not shoot loose.
Cons: Difficult to mount. Complex design....
Would recommend: Yes

Best M1A Scope Mount

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on March 20, 2009
This is the third scope mount I tried on my M1A. And it's the only one that works. I practice a lot and the Springfield Gen 1 and Gen 2 mounts shot loose. There is lots of adjustment in the base so you can center the scope and use the mount to practically zero the scope. Be sure to lock-tight the screws. After 3 competitions and several hundred pratice round the mount is still tight. Only down side is you can't use the iron sights with this mount.
Pros: Rick solid, low profile
Cons: Can't use the iron sights...
Would recommend: Yes
