M1 Garand owners who would like to mount optics face several hurdles: permanent modifications to the receiver or barrel are expensive and could decrease collector value of the rifle, and conventional-eye-relief optics require a left-hand offset to allow for proper operation of the gun. The U.S.-made UltiMAK Forward, Low Optic Mount solves both issues. It replaces the rifle’s handguard, attaching with two 4140 Steel clamps to standard-profile, G.I.-spec barrels so that no permanent modifications to the gun are necessary. The design allows long-eye-relief optics such as scout scopes and red-dot sights to be centered above the bore and forward of the loading/ejection port. The Picatinny-profile mount is made of hard anodized 6061-T6 aluminum in a matte black finish and includes hardware, a wrench and instructions for easy user-installation.
