Details and Specifications

Would you like to shoot your GARAND more, but have trouble seeing the sights?  Now this ever-popular war horse can now be outfitted with the latest sighting technology, thanks to the unique design of the Mini-Scout-MountGarand.  It installs in minutes so you can easily and securely mount red dot sights or a pistol scope for faster target acquisition and better peripheral vision while shooting. You can also install the optional Tactical Light Mount Kit ™ for quick and reliable attachment of most tactical flashlights, lasers and other accessories.  Get the most out of your GARAND and enjoy shooting it more!


The Mini-Scout-MountGarand is specifically designed and guaranteed to fit US Military Standard M1-Garand rifles.  Our mounts will fit and function properly on many of the “TANKER” versions, but often require some fitting.  It will also fit many of the BM-59 and BM-63 rifles.  Click on the BARREL ID Tab for more information on these models.

Check your Barrel

IMPORTANT!


The Mini-Scout-MountGarand is specifically designed for a drop-in fit on US Military Specification, Standard Weight barrels.  It will NOT fit a heavy barrel (usually a match after-market barrel). 

Our mounts will fit and function properly on many of the “TANKER” versions, but often require some fitting.  Note that every “TANKER” is essentially a custom built rifle. On some the operating rod will drag on our barrel clamp, binding it and interfering with the function of the rifle.  This can usually be remedied by filing off a little of the barrel clamp material just where the operating rod drags.  On a very few “TANKERS”, the drag of the operating rod against the clamp is so severe that it cannot be modified enough to make it work.  REMEMBER, before you start filing that if you modify the clamp or any part of the mount, you will void the warranty. 

BM-59 and BM-63 rifles are Italian copies of the GARAND and most will accept our mount.  However, on some units the mount body is too long to fit between the handguard retainer ring and the receiver.  This can usually be fixed by grinding or filing off a small amount of material from the back of the mount body.  REMEMBER, before you start filing that if you modify the clamp or any part of the mount, you will void the warranty.

M1 Garand Mount Specific FAQ's

A: About 4-5 minutes, once you have removed the hand guard.

A: NO. None of the mounting screws actually touch your rifle.

A: MAYBE. You may see a small improvement in average group size with some types of ammunition.

A: Yes.

A: NO…but it will get warm.

A: NO.

A: NO.

A: MAYBE…Sometimes our mount will drop right into place, bolt up and work as a normal Garand would. Often, the Tanker’s modified op rod drags across the barrel clamp, and this can be fixed by filing or grinding the contact area off the clamp. Sometimes no amount of grinding the clamp will get it to work, and the clamp is ruined. NOTE…..If you modify the mount body or the barrel clamp, it cannot be returned.

A: We only recommend a pistol scope. They are more compact and have longer eye relief, which allows better peripheral vision. If you use a Scout scope, the shorter eye relief places the rear lens too close to the ejection port. After you fire a couple of rounds off, the oil and powder residue coming out of the port usually fouls your scope lens so badly that you cannot see through it.

A: Removing the gas system on the Garand for cleaning has no effect on the Mini-Scout-Mount.  Just do not remove the band pin from the lower barrel band as the Mini-Scout-Mount bears against this.

A: It is a mechanical fact that the mount is centered over the barrel and cannot be installed any other way.

With the shape of the Garand receiver being what it is, it may appear to be slightly off to the left.  With a scope (or red dot sight) in place,  you should have no trouble getting your zero because the mount body is aligned true to the bore of the rifle and not dependent on the receiver.

A: The barrel bracket on the M1-D will preclude intalling our mount to your barrel. If you can remove the bracket, our mount should work fine.

A: Use the lowest rings that will allow mounting the scope. The brand doesn't really matter (Weaver is usually the cheapest, while Warne Quick-Detachable rings are very nice but pricey). The lower rings will help you keep your cheek on the stock for a better shooting position.

A: The Garand mount weighs 10.7 ounces and is 9.415 inches long.

A: YES.
