I am looking for optics for an M1A1 in a Troy chassis I am concerned about the double recoil (bolt going forward) damaging the scope. I have been looking at the Super Sniper 10x scopes and I am wondering if anyone has other suggestions. I do not want to go over $800 which is the cost of the SS 10x42 HD model or go high power over 10x. Does anyone else have this setup if so what do you use.

I have a troy MCS as well. Used the ss 10x42 standard model for years without issue. I recently got in on the 1-6, 5-20 deal so I sold the 10x42. 

Here are some of my photos of how the setup might look with the 10x42

I have to clean my shorts.
 
Welcome and thanks. 
 
That ain't just lipstick, that is a nice plastic surgery job with good implants and a butt lift.

I think the 10 x 42 SS  HD would be a fine choice.  I run a 1.5x compact ACOG on mine and have had good luck with an Aimpoint but have not liked traditional optics on it as well.  I tride a Leu Mk4 8.5-25x50 for a while but it was more scope than I wanted on it.  I think the fixed 6x would also be a fine choice.

How hard is it drop a M-14/M1A in that stock, apcreno? Does it help with fullauto control?

Nice rifle and great background scenery reminding me of the Big Horns and Northwestern WY around the Powell/Lovell area.

Thanks for the replies. I have decided to go with the SS 10x with side focus. Now to figure out the mount, I am leaning towards the American Defense Recon. I will try to post som pics when it is done. Again thanks for the suggestions.
