Here she is gents.........It is the Target XM15-E2S. It is like new condition....he told me not over 200 rds through it...
Has the Versa-Pod....Target Trigger....4x16 Redfield scope...
She's a Beaut...................................

One Question already........the scope is mounted in Millet high rings.....The scope is still to low.....Is there specific types of rings you have to use to mount scopes on these flat tops??????

And.....going through the manual....is it nessesary to take the upper off for just general maintainence like cleaning the bore and cleaning chamber area????

Nice rifle...

And.....going through the manual....is it nessesary to take the upper off for just general maintainence like cleaning the bore and cleaning chamber area????

Why not? It only takes 5 seconds to take the upper off, then you can bull the BCG out and clean that too...Plus, when cleaning the bore you are supposed to go from chamber to muzzle, and it's much easier when the BCG and charging handle is out of the way.

Riser Blocks for Picatinny Rail Flat-tops
These black anodized aluminum mounts clamp onto Picatinny configuration rails to offer the extra height necessary to achieve a proper sight picture and comfortable cheek weld on the buttstock when using scopes with the AR type rifle. They attach with Allen Head screws, and two risers are required for most mounting applications (one for each ring).
Price: $13.95
Part No: LW-RB

The riser blocks are the ticket....thanks Andy...I will get them ordered.

Okay Bazooka Joe....I have no experience with ARs at all. None what so ever...I just drooled over them for years :D....Thought that for just bore cleaning I could just push out the back pin and swivel up the upper and clean that way......I need all the advise I can get.......
Going to read the manual front to back....

Yep, you can definately just push out the back pin and clean the bore that way, but with 5 more seconds of effort, it will make cleaning the bore much, much easier...

Plus, if the bore if dirty enough to clean, might as well give all of the internals a once over(ie. BCG). If you need help with disassembly, let me or someone else know and I'm sure I can dig around and find good picture directions for you.
