It would seem that old age is beginning to re-calibrate my eye balls and the front sight on my garand is a lot smaller and way more out of focus than it used to be. I have been considering mounting a scout mount and scope. There are a couple of mounts out there, the question is, which mount? Anyone here have experience with these mounts?

Yes I have done 2 of them on M-1 Garands
One for a man in Green River, Wyo, and one for a man in Pivillion Wyo.
The man from Pivillion now lives in Anaconda Mt.

They work well, and it makes for a very good sight for M-1 owners with aging eyes.

Ultimak (http://blog.joehuffman.org/2011/01/08/ItTookAbout70Years.aspx) just released a new scout mount for the Garand. According to the post, it's supposed to ship next week.

I have used the B-Square mount on my Garand. It works well.

I wanted to scope a garand and make a pseudo-sniper. The b-Square mount price seemed to drop, then a big catalog vendor put them on sale to boot. I bought one.

It came in, and was labeled "Made in China". Which would explain the price drop. I sent it back. For all I know, my M1's may have fought the Chinese in Korea!

The project is again on hold. If I get the itch again, it may get the CMP or the Ultimak and a scout scope.

No link, but I saw it in their catalog that gets mailed out. You should call the North or South store.

This company has been doing it for a while now, and I think they're the ones who made the mounts for the CMP.

I have the forward mount from CMP that replaces the rear handguard. Works fine when I feel the need.
