Does anyone make a weaver rail scope mount for the Garand?

I have the B-Square mount on one of my Garands, the one with the NM barrel and op rod. It works quite well.

LARRYG, can you describe how the mount and scope attach to the rifle? How is the loading of clips and the ejection of same and brass impacted? Can the iron sights be used preferably immediately and without dismounting the scope? Is a cheek pad needed to provide proper cheek weld to the stock?

I'm curious.



Unfortunately, you have to remove the rear sight. It is canted off to the side and loading and ejection are no problem. You won't need a cheekpad because it is canted to the left.

I have 3 Garands and have this setup on one of them. I plan on being far enough away that I can switch to one of the other Garands or an AR if need be.

Perhaps I should have specified.

A scout-rifle type mount. Perhaps replacing the top wood just forward of the reciever.
