I have a Garand M1D with the Weaver K4-60B scope and mount.

The rarest of M1 combinations, I believe, other than the gas trap.

I can post pics if there is any interest.

I'm always happy to see a Garand.
Especially a rare one.
Thanks DABTL.

The original M1D had a 7/8 inch scope ring for the M84 scope.

During the 1960's the last of the improvements to that rifle involved the adoption of the Weaver K4-60B scope. 1" ring size on the mount was necessary for the fit.

These mounts were unknown until the late 1980's. Supposedly they were for National Guard units facing hippies and other such threats. CMP released them and they are quite rare.
