In this post, we’ll look at what’s involved in mounting the Nikon Monarch 6-24 x 50mm riflescope to our AR-15 using the Nikon M-223 scope mount.
Before we get on with the video, let’s take a look at the finished product:
What’s nice here about using the Midwest Industries quad rail handguard, is the “continuous top rail” that it creates which extends the picatinny rail feature on the A3-style upper that we used for the AR-MPR project. This means we can move the scope mount further forward as needed (a good thing when optimizing eye relief for a variety of shooting positions. Here, I’ve measured what will be best for benchrest style shooting.
Here’s the video showing the process:
I plan to sight in this rifle at the range starting at 25 yards, then moving to 100 yards for the initial sight in. Should be fun!
