Are there any goose-neck mounts that will fit properly on a Bushmaster removable carry handle ? A friend of mine ordered an Aimpoint g/n mount, and it did not fit the contour of the carry handle. The carry handle was too squared-off on the front end, as opposed to being more rounded on a fixed carry handle. He also tried a g/n mount made by Calvary Arms, abd it would not fit either.

Thanks

Did you try an arms 39A2 mount?

Aside from the question of exactly why one would wish to use something like the ARMS #39 on a flat top receiver...which, I admit, is a personal choice...I do not think any of the better quality mounts for the A2's will fit many of the removable carry handles precisely because of this difference in design. Some surgery with a Dremel might cure the problem, but it could get expensive.

Hey Nut, We need to convince him to go w/ the flat-top and flip-up rear sight. Still can't figure out why he wants to use a gooseneck on a removable handle. You know how he is. :) Cap By the way, good to finally catch you on here.
