US Tactical Systems M14 “Brookfield” Type WEAVER Scope Rail
US Tactical Systems “Brookfield” Type M14 Weaver Mount
The US Tactical System “Brookfield” Weaver Type mount provides a secure, stable scope base that won’t shift between shots. Rock-solid, three-point mounting system attaches to the factory scope mount screw hole in the receiver and the charger guide dovetail, while the setscrew at the front uses the receiver ring as a stop to prevent forward movement. This enhances the stability, and eliminates any rocking motion under heavy recoil. No drilling or tapping required to install.
This US Tactical Systems M14 mount is constructed out of a solid billet of 4140 steel. Our Wire-EDM manufacturing process leaves the finished product completely devoid of stress. Competing designs, lacking in this essential process often result in critical systems failures, due to the heavy recoil of the larger caliber rounds. Wire-EDM manufacturing also allows for the tightest tolerances, and perfect fit on your Classic M14 rifle. Six precision notched Weaver cross-slots offer plenty of versatility in setting eye relief, and the integrated sight channel allows use of iron sights without removing the scope. Take a look at our other listings for a “Brookfield” PICATINNY type M14 Rail Mount, if you would rather a MIL STD 1913 type application.

Facts About Glass
Rifle scopes permit you to exactly align a rifle at different targets by aligning your eye with the target at range. They accomplish this through magnification by employing a set of lenses within the scope. The scope’s positioning can be dialed in for the consideration of different environmental factors like wind speed and elevation increases to account for bullet drop.
The scope’s function is to help the shooter understand precisely where the bullet will land based upon the sight picture you are viewing via the scope as you line up the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the target. A lot of modern-day rifle optics have about eleven parts which are found inside and externally on the scope body. These parts consist of the rifle scope’s body, lenses, modification turrets or dials, focus rings, and other parts. Learn about the eleven parts of glass.
Rifle Optic Styles
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” type of optics. Deciding on the optimal type of rifle optic is based around what type of shooting you plan on doing.
About First Focal Plane Glass
First focal plane scopes (FFP) feature the reticle ahead of the magnification lens. This induces the reticle to increase in size based on the extent of magnification being used. The result is that the reticle measurements are the same at the enhanced distance as they are at the non amplified range. One tick on a mil-dot reticle at one hundred yards with no “zoom” is still the identical tick at one hundred yards with 5x “zoom”. These types of scopes are practical for:
- Quick acquisition, far away types of shooting
- Shooting circumstances where computations are very little
- Experienced shooters who know their target “hold over” plus “lead” ratios for their long gun
- Shooters who do not mind the reticle is enlarged and takes up more visual sight space than a SFP reticle
Second Focal Plane Scope Details
Second focal plane scopes (SFP) come with the reticle behind the zoom lens. In the FFP example with the SFP scope, the 5x “zoom” 100 yard tick measurement would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick measurement.
- Far away types of shooting where shooters have extra time to make ballistic computations
- Shooting where most shots take place within shorter spaces and ranges
- Shooters who want a clearer optic picture without area taken up by the larger size FFP reticle
The quantity of magnification a scope offers is identified by the size, density, and curvatures of the lenses inside of the rifle scope. The magnification of the scope is the “power” of the scope.
Fixed Power Lens Glass
A single power rifle optic will have a zoom number designator like 4×32. This indicates the zoom power of the scope is 4x power and the objective lens is 32mm. The magnification of this type of scope can not fluctuate because it is a set power scope.
Adjustable Power Lens Glass Facts
Variable power rifle scopes use enhanced power. The power adjustment is accomplished by making use of the power ring part of the scope near the rear of the scope by the eye bell.
Rifle Optic Power Level and Range Correlation
Here are some advised scope power settings and the ranges where they can be successfully used. High power rifle scope glass will not be as useful as lower powered rifle scope glass because too much zoom can be a negative aspect depending on your shooting distance. The very same idea relates to longer distances where the shooter needs to have increased power to see exactly where to best aim the rifle.
Details on Rifle Optic Lens Coating
All modern rifle scope lenses are layered. Lens finish is an essential element of a shooting system when looking into high end rifle optics and scope setups.
Details on Lens Coatings – HD Versus ED
Some scope producers likewise use “HD” or high-definition lens finishings which use different procedures, components, polarizations, and chemicals to draw out a wide range of colors and viewable quality through the lens. Some scope manufacturers use “HD” to refer to “ED” meaning extra-low dispersion glass.
What to Know About Single Coating Versus Multi-Coating
Various optic lenses can also have different finishes used to them. All lenses typically have at least some type of treatment or finishing applied to them before being used in a rifle scope or optic.
This lens treatment can protect the lens from scratches while reducing glare and other less advantageous things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the scope. The quality of a single covered lens depends on the scope producer and how much you paid for it.
Some scope manufacturers similarly make it a point to define if their optic lenses are covered or “multi” coated. Being “much better” depends on the maker’s lens treatment innovation and the quality of materials used in building the rifle scope.
Glass Lens Hydrophobic Finish
Water on an optic’s lens doesn’t help with maintaining a clear sight picture through an optic at all. Numerous top of the line or high-end optic producers will coat their lenses with a hydrophilic or hydrophobic finishing. The Steiner Optics Nano-Protection is a good example of this sort of treatment. It deals with the surface of the Steiner optic lens so the H2O molecules can not bind to it or produce surface tension. The outcome is that the water beads slide off of the scope to maintain a clear, water free sight picture.
Choices for Installing Glass on Long Guns
Installing approaches for scopes are available in a few options. There are the basic scope rings which are separately mounted to the scope and one-piece mounts which cradle the scope. These different types of mounts also generally can be found in quick release versions which use manual levers which allow rifle shooters to quickly install and remove the glass.
Rifle Scope Mounting Solutions with Hex Key Rings
Basic, clamp-on type mounting scope rings use hex head screws to mount to the flattop style Picatinny scope mounting rails on the tops of rifles. These forms of scope mounts use a pair of independent rings to support the scope, and are made from 7075 T6 billet aluminum or similar materials which are manufactured for far away accuracy shooting. This kind of scope mount is good for rifle systems which need to have a long lasting, unfailing mount which will not shift regardless of how much the scope is moved or jarring the rifle takes. These are the style of mounts you want for a faithful optics system on a long distance scouting or tournament long gun that will pretty much never need to be changed or adjusted. Blue 242 Loctite threadlocker can additionally be used on the scope mount’s screws to stop the hex screws from backing out after they are installed tightly in place. An example of these rings are the 30mm style from the Vortex Optics brand. The set typically costs around $200 USD
Glass Mounting Solutions with Quick-Release Cantilever Rings
These types of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to rapidly remove a scope and attach it to a different rifle. Multiple scopes can also be switched out if they all use a similar design mount. These types of mounts are handy for rifles which are transferred a lot, to swap out the optic from the rifle for protecting the scope, or for optics which are used in between multiple rifles or are situationally focused.
Info on Rifle Glass Tube Sealing and Gas Purging
Wetness inside your rifle scope can mess up a day of shooting and your pricey optic by bringing about fogging and producing residue inside of the scope tube. Many scopes avoid wetness from going into the scope tube with a system of sealing O-rings which are waterproof.
Rifle Optic Gas Purging
Another element of preventing the buildup of moisture inside of the rifle scope tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Given that this area is currently taken up by the gas, the optic is less altered by condition alterations and pressure variations from the outside environment which may possibly allow water vapor to seep in around the seals to fill the vacuum which would otherwise be there. These are good qualities of a good rifle scope to seek out.
