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.
regarding M1 "tankers" / Note to gunsmiths; Tankers (shortened M1
Garand rifles) are often a problem. You need clearance of at least 0.050”
between the barrel and the operating rod to accommodate the UltiMAK M12 barrel
clamp, immediately behind the barrel band/forend cap, and most tankers do not
have enough room there. You can see the forward clamp position, indicated by
the screw, in the photo above. The forward clamp doubles as a recoil lug for
the optic mount, extending just forward of the mount proper and buttressing
against the barrel band/forend cap which is securely pinned to the barrel. The
clamp is already as thin as practical, so trying to thin the clamp to make room
is a bad idea. Ideally, the tanker conversion would be done with the UltiMAK
mount in mind, and in that case it would be fairly easy to accommodate it.
Please make note of this when planning any future tanker conversions.
