I used the repro M84 on a repro M1D (grade B, CMP receiver; Criterion barrel; CMP wood; repro scope, base, and mount; misc other parts) this past August at Camp Perry. My son and I teamed up and we both shot mid 90's with it at 300 yds. This was with a screw up on my part in setting up the adjustment knobs where we had to hold bottom-of-paper to hit the black. The scope performed just fine.
It didn't start out that way, however. I went through four of these trying to get one where the adjustment knobs turned the adjustment shaft with each click. I finally had to fix this myself. Seems the craftsman fitting the indexing disk (under the adjustment knob) made the square engaging hole too big and it took one or two clicks to move the shaft. I got some GI disks from SARCO and that solved the problem. I suppose the square disk openings that came with the scope could be filled with something to take up the slack and do the same thing.
I have an original M84 that is very nice, but the repro has much better glass which helps my old eyes. I keep the scope on the rifle all the time to avoid issues with the mount; some repro mounts have soft screws and won't tolerate a lot of on-off activity.
We didn't use the M1D at 600 yds, but had a repro A4 (re-purposed Rem receiver; Criterion barrel; CMP wood; internet acquired other parts)zeroed for that distance. I'd like to try the M1D at six, but we are now doing an 03 A1 (ex-sporterized SA '03; Criterion barrel; CMP wood; misc other parts) with a repro 8X USMC scope for that distance. Hope to have it shooting in January.
For those who might wonder, I have a professional gun smith do all my barrel and head space work. I just do the easy stuff.
I have been amazed how well these assembeled "parts" guns will shoot, and it's a lot cheaper than purchasing real "snipers" that should be preserved.
Ain't this fun!!!!
Be safe!

The M84 scopes made by Leupold did not have the box around the numbers. Also on the Leupold I think the part number 7667424 is stamped on the tube.
