Just a note for anyone interested. The M14 scope mounts were initially offset to facilitate loading from charger clips. It was most likely a carry over from the M1C and M1D where enblocs needed to be loaded.

Congrats on a really cool build; that's how they should look! Let us know how it shoots.

Works pretty good to me. All 1960s vintage USGI parts including Winchester barrel. We'll call it 99-3X just to be on the conservative side.
Not too shabby using a 2.5 power repro M84 with a Type I riser. Called the 9 at 6 as and AFU.

As an experiment for my own benefit, I removed the single point mount last night, cleaned the rifle and this morning stuck the mount back on at torqued by feel. Moved the group 1.5" left at 100yds. Seems to be good enough for minute of man. Left target yesterday Right target this morning. Remember this is a Winchester USGI barrel and offset M1C type scope mount.

Just for comparison to the old gear, I just shot this with my LRB M25 with Kreiger SS. 8.5 - 25 Leupold in a JAE stock. 100 - 9x. Equivalent to 99 - 3x on an SR-31.
My thought is the bad guy isn't going to make it even with the old stuff.
