It works, but...

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MN Written on January 1, 2014
I wanted to do cast bullet hand load development for an 03 Springfield rifle at ranges of 100 and 200 yards.

My eyesight has made using even the best iron sights at longer ranges rather less accurate than 40 years ago... So I wanted a scope on the rifle, but didn't want to alter it permanently. The B-Square mount did allow this.

You must remove the magazine cutoff to install the mount, and while mount is installed, it prevents removal of the bolt for cleaning.

So if you've got a rod cleaning system, either you must lose zero if you wish to clean from the breech, or clean from the muzzle with the danger of wear to the muzzle from the rod.

Or you can buy a "pull through" cleaning system... (which I did- I highly recommend the Otis military surplus AWCS kits! Great values at around $40.00 plus shipping on eBay occasionaly if you look around).

It took a bit of fiddling to get the mount on and adjusted close enough to parallel with the bore to allow bore sighting. Once that was done, I found a very tall cheekpiece necessary to use the scope properly- Which can be faked up from scraps of rubber foam and the non adhesive surgical wrap.

The mount is Aluminum, and will come loose under recoil from military 30-06 or other high velocity jacketed bullet ammo after a while unless you use locktite and considerable care in your installation. After re-installing the mount, I proceeded to test handloads with cast bullets at moderate velocities- The mount held up well using...

B-Square Classic Military Mount for 1903 Springfield

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 7, 2011
A good concept, but too many bugs. The ball bearing feature must go. I suppose that the locking/securing features (hex screws) could be secured with Loctite, but that makes dismounting difficult without the application of heat. The customer was consistently high at the range, and to boresight the mounted scope required the use of excessive shims to retain maximum adjustment on the scope. I normally drill and tap M1903's, but my customer insisted that he retain the use of the rifle sights. We ended up drilling and tapping the receiver anyway. The mount has promise, but it isn't quite up to snuff yet. I have had the same problems with the "No Gunsmithing" mounts for the Ruger Mini-14 and M1A by B-Square not being able to hold under recoil.
Pros: Easy installation, clears military bolt, you do not have to drill and tap the very hard M1903 receiver.
Cons: The mount will not remain secure under recoil, will not "hold zero". It is not practical to continually check that the mount is secure. My customer had difficulty using the bolt removal feature incorporated in the mount assembly....

Missing parts are the clamp and the Clamp bushing.
After several calls to B-square, and 2 e-mails I finally got a return call from someone at B-Square a week later.

The entire production run of this mount is missing these same parts. It is impossible to properly mount a scope using this mount until the problem is rectified.
Pros: Nice mount if all pars are provided
Cons: Missjng parts...
Would recommend: No
