    Default Armalite AR10A2 problem

    Finally got around to trying to mount an ACOG 4x32 scope on my AR10A2. Was disappointed to find that I cant mount it in the rear most position. Fits fine in the forward position. Looks like the rear of the handle was not milled correctly - cants the scope rear upwards so that scope can not be adjusted correctly. Feeler guage put under the rear of the scope base can be easily pulled out when the scope is locked down. Interior of handle shows no obstruction.
    Have installed same ACOG in my Bushmaster AR15 without trouble in rear most position.
    Curious if anyone else has experienced same problem with their AR10A2?
    Rifle is about 3-4 years old. Not sure if I can complain to the manufacturer now, and get a new upper? Very happy with rifle otherwise.
    Just install the scope forward - although it is hard for me to get a proper picture.hold. Buy an entirely different scope and base?

    Any advice? Experiences?

    Talked to Armalite today. Said they do not warrenty the receiver handle channel to be square, and to fit mounts such as an ACOG???? WTF!!!!

    Oh well - last Armalite product I ever buy.
