There should be a screwhead on the back of the stock. Take the top one off. It should pull right off but becareful because there is the detent and spring for the takedown pin is held in by the bustock.

That's what I thought it was, but that screw is REALLY tight!

Yeah, mine was like that too when I installed it. They really over do it on the red lock tite. I had to take a knife and cut away at some of the locktite just to get it to screw in.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to make a trip to the hardware store tomorrow. Somebody stole/lost/borrowed mine.

Since I already started a thread.... I gots more questions :mrgreen:

So, I took the carry handle off of my DPMS AP4 and mounted a scope today. I used "high" rings, and I though that would be good enough....

Wrong I was...

It's not that it isn't usable, because it is, it's just so dang awkward to get my face down there right to see through the darn thing. It was more like a cheekBONE weld.... That got sore after a bit.....

SO... I'm looking for something to give the scope and extra lift. Something I can just leave the scope mounted to, and just swap it for the carry handle when the need arises.

Best device to fit this bill???

THANKS A MILLION

Take a look at the LaRue mounts. I am in the current situation as you as my scope is too low and it takes some time to get settled in when shooting. I would get a LaRue SPR mount but my scope has a 35mm tube and almost no one makes rings that big. Hopefully LaRue has something coming out soon for it.

Ok, I checked out the LaRue stuff......

But I aint that rich.

I was browsing Midway and found that Weaver, Tapco, B-square (etc...) make risers that should do the trick. And they are all under 50 bucks.

Hmm....

I have used scope risers by White Oak Armament and Smith Enterprises(too expensive). I like them a lot.
Yankee Hill Machine Makes one that is inexpensive.

You can mount the scope to the riser using medium to high rings and take the riser on and off instead of unmounting the rings and possibly messing up the zero, you can just take the riser off and be fairly certain the zero will not change. Here are some examples of my setups.

This is the Smith Enterprises rail. It is a straight rail meaning it does not have any elevation built in. It was $100.


This is my White Oak set up. It has 15 min of elevation built in. It was $85.

You could mount the scope on top of the carry handle, but it might be too high then. Now that I think about it I am not sure if I have ever seen that done with a removable.

I have seen it done, and although I haven't held or fired one in that configuration, it looks rediculously high and awkward.

I'm using the ARMALITE optic's mount and it's just about right.. then again I'm using the PRS stock as well with the cheek piece elevated just a tad. I've had this same issue and have used the YMH 2 piece riser (good gear if you're leaving the optic on and don't need QD) and a A.R.M.S. #38-ex Swan sleeve (I like this one because the A2 BUIS is built in to the sleeve).. I found that the ARMALITE mount actually fits the bill more because of the foward cant. It's pretty dern simular to the LaRue (wish I were that rich myself) SPR mount.

Hope that helps..
