I was thinking of just keeping the irons on my 551 but after shooting it irons only at the range over the weekend, meh. Apparently the B&T mounts are quickly disappearing because of a batch of new rifles coming in. B&T had the mount on their site for cheaper than anyone else plus fedex two day shipping for free, so I grabbed one since there were only 10 left. I looked a few weeks ago and they had over 100 in stock. Now I need to decide on an optic and mount. I was thinking Aimpoint T2 in a scalarworks mount. I'd like to try a 1.57" because the extra height of the B&T mount and the lower stock vs an AR should make that pretty close to 1.93 which I like to run. I could also go full regard and get a 1-4x elcan, which I kind of want to do if I find one for a good price. Thoughts?
