 I've got an SAI loaded standard M1A with an arms 18 base. I want a good optic for cqb out to 3-400 meters. I think I have it narrowed down to an Eotech 552 (have one on an ar and love it), an aimpoint M2, or an IOR 4x24 m1. I am not commited to any of these and would appreciate feedback or alternative suggestions. My main concern about using a true scope (IOR etc.) is being able to mount the thing far enough to the rear. The leupy tactical (3-9x36 m3 mrt) that came off of it was as far back in the rings as it could be and barely worked.

Are you shooting upper torso shots at 300-400 meters or smaller targets??

Bought an M1A Scout and put a Burris 2-7 Ext Eye Relief on it...

 

I just couldn't get the clicks to bring down the reticle anywhere near the POI.

 

So I put on one of those Zeiss Z Points on and I could not be any happier. I own a Eotech as well as ACOGS and ELAN Scopes but the Z Point just seems right. I can hit cans all the way out the 250 yrds with that darn thing now...

 

From your list... If I were to be able to get a "real" scope working on my M1A I guess I would go the Leopold route

 

Anyhow I hope this was of some help,,

 

Best regards.

Both the Eo Tech and Aimpoint would serve your purposes nicely. Also take a look at the ACOG.

 

Are you shooting with a raised cheek piece? If not, I'd recommend getting one. Karlestons Custom Camo makes a fairly nice adjustable one. From what I read on the hide its really robust and fairly easy to install. It looks a lot like the one on the McMillian stocks.

Keep the scope change the stock:

 

McMillanM3A

M3A:
Our M3A stock was designed as an alternative to the pistol grip type M2A. It has a vertical pistol grip with a wrap-over thumb shelf and can be equipped with a vertically adjustable saddle type cheekpiece. The butt is similar in design to the A-2 stock and can be fitted with an adjustable spacer system or a fixed length of pull. The forend is slightly smaller than our Match M1A and is consequently lighter and more maneuverable. It must be bedded. It is not legal for NRA Service Rifle Competition. For M14/M1A rifles only.


Coming soon: M3A with integral adjustable cheekpiece.
