Seems like I'm seeing new information constantly on these two mounts. I like glass on my rifles, but to be honest I've yet to see, or hear about a mount for a M1 Garand that I want to put my money in. My two things are looks, & how they function. I like the looks of a M1C mount, but they don't function as good as the M1D mount. On top of that, I would want a mount that would take a modern scope with a 1" tube, that didn't take away the standard sights. I guess I want my cake & eat it too. As far as the flash hider is concerned, I Know it's a vintage thing, but I think it makes the Garand look ugly as hell.

Griffin & Howe sells an M1-C mount with 1" rings. Not identical to the original 75-year-old design but close enough. And it has GRIFFIN & HOWE, NEW YORK stamped on the top.

Thanks for the heads up on the Griffin & Howe mount Tennboy. That sounds like something that I might be interested in.

Indeed... 1” would be nice but wonder how much room you got to determine scope size. I am in the middle of a build now that I planned to send to G&H to install M1C mount.

When I called them about install, they asked me to send my Lyman scope to verify clearance. Maybe the 1” is taller?

A couple more things, would the windage knob on the scope interfere with the ejection of the clip, and would there be plenty of room to place the scope at the best position for the best eye relief.

The added height of the current production mount body and the difference in vertical dimension between the 7/8" and 1" ring centerlines add about 1/4"-5/16" to line-of-sight elevation.

For myself, that would put things in a position that I would want to see a working set up before I put the money in it. But, it may just work, and work well.

They would likely be happy to put it together for you to make sure it fits. Send them scope and BR.
