Customers have been asking for an UltiMAK optic mount for their Garand rifles for years. Here it is, and it's everything you've come to expect from UltiMAK. Its forward positioning places the optic entirely clear of the receiver mechanism without the Rube Goldberg tricks of the past. Elegant and simple, it's low enough to allow co witnessing of iron sights when used with tubular 1x optics such as Aimpoint, it is stable so you don't have to worry about loss of zero, it's rugged, it looks great as it blends in with the rifle's original profile, and it is designed to be installed by the user with simple tools. In a word, it's UltiMAK.
At right (top) is a 1940s Springfield M1. It's been through a lot, yet it functions just like it did over 65 years ago. However, this one sports a 2.5x Leupold intermediate eye relief (I.E.R.) "Scout" scope atop the UltiMAK M12 mount.
The bottom photo shows an Aimpoint Micro T1 atop the M12. This is a co witnessing arrangement, where the iron sights may be used, as a back-up sighting system, seen through the bottom portion of the Aimpoint's viewing area.
