Issued Scope Mounts for the 10X Unertl on the M82A1A

Postby thebadlt » Fri 08 May, 2009 4:21 pm

I have an original issued M82A1A from Desert Storm & an original 10X Sniper Unertl scope from the FBI atop it. I need to know what the original scope rings & mount are to present this for display in the proper historical setting. Presently, I have Badger 34 mm rings and mounts on it with 30 mm reducers. These are not vintage & I want to get the appropriate rings & mounts. I have heard that Barrett mfg'd its own rings/mounts for this configuration. If so, where do I track these down?

People think I'm paranoid because I own guns.
If I own guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

No-I need to know what the historically correct 10X Unertl on Barrett M82A1A scope mounts were in 1990/1991. Sorry, to be a P-I-T-A but I've got a U.S. War Museum here in Atlanta & many Iraq/Afganistan sniper warrior/veterans come through here & I cannot give them a B.S. story.

I'm not sure ... I know both front and rear rings were of the two-screw variety; but I can't be more specific than that (which you probably already knew).

The two i dealt with during the end of Shield and the start of Desert Broom were Badger Ordnance style with a socket head screw in them instead of the standard hex head to secure them to the rail. This might have been something the armory did on the spot, they were often lacking supplies and frequently "inventive" to get the job done. (or they didnt was us f-ing with them) There was no way for us to tell who made them, there was no marking on them but they look identical to the Badger rings.
Dont know about the scope though, but one was not the same Unertl that was on the M40, the other one was.

According to Don Cook, the head armor and a match grade armor for the Marine Corps in the past. He says that when the M82A1A went out of Barrett that the scope rings were a Unertl ring. These rings were 1" rings and the rings were mounted on a base, to make a complete piece, that mounted on top of the SASR scope rail. Don says, that if you need more info try going direct with the Marine Corp Match Armor guys as they should have all the history on this. Hope this helps.
