Hey Chuck, it's in the manual if your customer gave it to you.
Loosen the two screws in the ring with the 8 stamped on it and you can turn reticle.

I talked to don after he kicked our tail in Oklahoma match. He and mike sexton (who has a scope shop and is selling and mounting these scopes) were looking at the rifle In question. I don't remember the exact problem and solution but it was simple. I will call mike this evening and get exact details. I shot mikes a4 because he was using an usmc set up. I know he has a lot of confidence in them. Plus he is an old marine. Will give details later if anyone wants them.

According to Leon, it was just a matter of Mike tightening the rear thumb screw to resecure the ring to the base. Leon recommended anyone buying one should have Mike Sexton install it.

Talked to Mike. Turns out these repro scopes have great multi coat glass. He and Rowell walker (f class shooter, gunsmith and mikes partner) are doing turn key installs. You send them a rifle and they do the rest. For about a grand.(including the scope) That is bolt work and everything. I know mike and I know he stands behind what he does. Don't know if it is ok to post his number here, but if it is ok I will. I am currently stopping at every gunshop I pass looking for a rifle to start with.

Do you really need a turned down bolt? Why can't you cycle the action with the scope in the forward position? Sorry if this is a dumb question but I am in the process of building one right now and would like to know if I have to start looking for a bent bolt.

Thanks,

Tom

Tom, I just finished having the blocks installed on two rifles. I have both 3/4" and 1" Unertl scopes and both function fine with the scopes forward.

if the return spring is added, then the bolt should be modified

The springs are not allowed as per the rules and since the Marines didn't use them either. Sounds like I should be good to go with a standard bolt.

Tom
