Mostly Winchester build just received her vintage 60s type Fall bonnet.
Repro M84 with Griffin and Howe type mount and AWC M1C type base. Dang this stuff is a hoot. Thanks to PvtJoker for sending mount back.

Just a note for anyone interested. The M14 scope mounts were initially offset to facilitate loading from charger clips. It was most likely a carry over from the M1C and M1D where enblocs needed to be loaded.

Very nice.

How does the eye cup fit ?... it seems like it would need to be rotated 90 degrees'ish ( clockwise ) to fit better ?

It turns easily. Even the way it is, my eye is a couple of inches aft so there is no trouble using it. Shades pretty well this way.

Works pretty good to me. All 1960s vintage USGI parts including Winchester barrel. We'll call it 99-3X just to be on the conservative side.
Not too shabby using a 2.5 power repro M84 with a Type I riser. Called the 9 at 6 as and AFU.

As an experiment for my own benefit, I removed the single point mount last night, cleaned the rifle and this morning stuck the mount back on at torqued by feel. Moved the group 1.5" left at 100yds. Seems to be good enough for minute of man. Left target yesterday Right target this morning. Remember this is a Winchester USGI barrel and offset M1C type scope mount.

Just for comparison to the old gear, I just shot this with my LRB M25 with Kreiger SS. 8.5 - 25 Leupold in a JAE stock. 100 - 9x. Equivalent to 99 - 3x on an SR-31.
My thought is the bad guy isn't going to make it even with the old stuff.
