Default M1D Cheekpad & Scope Mount

I decided to make a thread in the correct forum to do this. I am looking for people to give me an idea if the cheekpad and the scope mount are real or reproduction.

Mount:






Cheekpad:





This information is greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure about the mount, but the pad looks suspicious to me.

Pad is a repro, all the way down to the screws.

To be fair, a nice repro, I have seen a lot of these that were good quality. Would love to see the inside pads as well.

Hi.

1.The openings on the screws look large. On the originals, the hole was very small. (Forget the dimension, but it's not one used anymore in hardware of that type.)

2. Check the bare metal pin on the base. If it's not springloaded, you probably have a repro.

3. Look at the side of the hinge. The hinge pin should have a rounded exterior, not flat.

4. Although some castings were imperfect, yours seems to have some divots not seen in originals.

On #2 is that reffering to the little pin in the second picture?

Yes, the little pin to the left of the main screw in the second photo. Use the flat of a screwdriver and depress it to see if it is spring-loaded. This is just one of the details that are missing from most repros. (In all honesty, it may be in some that I haven't seen as yet.)
