    Fixed my dented brass isssue today

    At least I think I did...

    Removed the SWFA 16X scope and low rings today and saw were it looks like it was hitting the windage turret pretty hard. Replaced it with my old Hi-Lux TAC-V 4-20 x 50 with medium rings and no more dented case mouths or jams today... So spent some time getting it zeroed.

    Can the SWFA reticle be turned to make the scope more M14 friendly?

    Fixed my dented brass isssue today... Update 07/25/21

    Guy's yesterday as I was loading up some ammo to go shoot today I was thinking of my Grey JAE with the low rings and my SWFA scope causing dented brass cases and jams... Got me to thinking of my 'Jeep Gun' which is another Bula XM-21 reciever which also uses the low rings and a SWFA scope... NO brass or jamming issues with her?

    Looked at the 'Jeep Gun's' scope underneath and it is banged up as well but does not cause brass damage or jams.

    Today, out shooting, I looked underneath the scopes of both my JAE Dot gun and my Grey JAE which both have the same 'medium' mounts on them to compare...

    Seems my Grey JAE rifle still has some brass ejection issues to address as it is banging up my Chinese scope pretty badly...

    Would like to fix this issue before I put my Vortex on her. Any thoughts? Suggestions? Fixes?

    Time to experiment with different lengths of ejector springs for a start. There are other modifications that are probably best not attempted at this time.

    The turret housing of the Dot gun is set back quite a bit compared to the one on the gray gun. I would sharpie the shiny spots on the China scope and move it back in the rings and shoot some and see what happens.

    You may have to be particular about what scope with what eye relief you mount in it.
