wsimpso1 Posted March 20, 2005 Share Posted March 20, 2005 3 Gun Newbie Looking for Voice of Experience I am building a flat top upper for our game with a 1.5-5 x20 Simmons Prodiamond on top, and have a JP short range sight on the way too. I thought that I knew how I wanted to mount the SRTS, and then, I scanned past something (have not been able to search it up here) about negotiating houses by placing the butt off of the shoulder... I know of one guy who shoots the NRA Service Rifle with the butt on top of his shoulder. Yeah it looks odd, but he is a High Master, Distinguished Rifleman, Presidents 100, etc. You don't argue with success like that, you try to learn from it. Hmm, let me describe what I have in mind and you guys tell me if I got it right. This is all from the point of view of a right hander, strong side shoulder and trigger: buttstock left side is on outside of right shoulder, rifle rotated 30-45 degrees anti-clockwise, face on back edge of flat top reciever looking down SRTS on the handgaurd. Do I have this right, or is it completely different? Second, what angles are you guys using for your short range sights, whether iron or glass? 1 o'clock is 30 degrees and 1:30 is 45 degrees, and I suppose that I could drill and tap holes at both and experiment. It seems like 1 o'clock is almost too small. Also, with narrow horizontal slots for ports and rifles being forced sideways, I wonder if putting the SRTS at 3 o'clock would not be a better idea instead of having to know your holdovers for a rotated rifle?
