    A whole new rail. One with windage and plenty of elevation adjustment in the rear sight.
    Liftrat and boostless like this.

    Well, I called Mossberg today, and they now have scout scope mounts for sale!!! not cheap though, $46.99 for the mount, which an'it bad, but then you have to pay $15 for the rear sight, and $5 each for the new screws and $15 shipping, so about $100 total. Still no Flex stocks for the MVP308 though.

    Not a long eye relief unit, but setting this up on my Flex in 308. Getting measurements for rings.
    Vortex Crossfire ii, 4-16× with 50mm objective.

    Ordered today, backorder on the mount :(, we'll see how long this takes, I have been waiting about a year, so a little while longer is no big deal.

    IT is finally done!!!! well almost :) the stock still feels a little 2x4ish to me and the angle for the cheek piece is way off, but the sights and scope are mounted.......

    I can't wait to shoot this thing I have had it for two years and still don't know if it goes boom.
    Hopefully it shoots well or, it will get some bedding when I work on the stock.

    Here are some pics:
    With the 10rd and 5rd M-14 mags.

    I will probably cut the scope mount down to clear some room in the action, I really like the clarity of this Hi-Lux scope, it is a little long, but it is a variable.

    It looks good. It’s a shame you haven’t shot it yet. Not that I’m much better. Hopefully I can remedy that this year.

    I called Mossbergs customer service about a scout rail. They got a batch in so I bought one. They have 21 rails left in this batch.

    Not a scout rail, but the 4x16 with 50mm objective almost feels like too much scope. Balance point with unloaded mag is at front end of the mag.

    Need a range trip to find out.

    That looks nice and low or at least as low as you can go. 4-16X does seem to be a nice match for the rifle. M-308 isn't that low but only because I don't want to lose the ability to use the factory Iron sights if something happens to the scope.

    No factory irons, so pretty useless without a scope

    Right and understood. Mine is the Patrol model without the flex stock. I don't think they had that big of a scope in mind with that model.
