Hi Gents,
Anyone here use the CASM mount for their BM59. I got one used for the Garand; I do have a couple of Garands just in case it is not OK for the BM59.

Ordered a JRA BM59 a couple days ago. Anyone get any of these new ones yet? I am think they are cast receivers; a couple hundred less than the Springfields. Any thoughts?

What is a CASM mount? I have one of the JRA BM59's and I like it.

The one I have is a forged receiver.

Wow. Nice pics. That is a sweet BM59 Sir!

CASM mount = Canadian mount that works on M14/M1A1 and Garand types:

I found one on Ebay for $75 and decided to buy. What the heck... it might be good.... or not.

Pretty easy installing CASM mount. I am waiting for a more appropriate Hopco for these red dots.

Got 2 different cheekpads on other rifles that I could pull but the Hopco is eventually going on this.

I do have 2 different cheekpads on other rifles that I could pull but the Hopco is eventually going on this. The Hopco looks pretty low profile. This from the Hopco site:

I have no affiliation with Hopco. Here's a review:

This a more appropriate cheekpad and scope:
