Randy_A is correct. B&L was the lens supplier to both Weaver and Lyman. On top of that, the need for binoculars, bombsights, optics for tanks, ships had higher priority than rifle scopes. Even Weaver could not supply scopes as fast as Remington could make rifles. Remington at times had unscoped rifles which they could not deliver to the army because there were no scopes for them. That meant inventory that Remington didn't want.

All this is discussed in my book on WW2 sniping (to be releaased in 2022). BTW, about 100 Lymans went to Canada and were mounted on the No. 4 Mk I (T).

I'm fortunate to have both a Weaver 330 and Lyman Alaskan.
