Barska 624x40 scope would not fit

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on August 19, 2013
Just a FYI..The Barska 624x40 scope, which I ordered from you on the same order would not fit because of the nitrogen port on the bottom of the scope would not clear the B -square mount using the ring mounts supplied with the mount. Taller mounts could have been used but would have raised the scope too high to get a good eye release. Machining a clearance for the nitrogen port solved the issue and kept the scope at a good height. Since I have a complete machine shop this was no problem, but for the customer who doesn't or thought his scope would just bolt on might be a little frustrated with his purchase of mount. Possible consideration should be given to make him aware of this issue so when he orders his scope he is aware of it. Other than that the mount is what I expected it to be....

B-square Mini 14 Sporting Rifle Mount

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on August 12, 2013
When first mounted the main screw was too long, so I added a lock washer to the outside of the plate. Even that is not always enough to keep the unit tight however. It needs to be checked regularly for tightness. If tight and sighted in, it shoots well however. Locking screws on the leveling screws are a good part of the design.
Pros: Probably the only and thus most reasonable rail mounting solution for this gun design
Cons: Not an entirely stable scope mounting platform because it loosens up from firing a while...

Too Many Problems

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 12, 2012
The first mount I received did not come with the slide plate cover which is ridiculous but Optics Planet was kind enough to replace the mount for me. When I received the 2nd one the slide plate cover was too thick for my 181 so I had to shave it down with my dremel. After doing that installation wasn't that bad but when I locked the set screws the allen key that came with it snapped right in half. I used a decent amount of blue loctite on all the screws and it still comes loose. To be honest I don't like this mount at all but it's the only thing that will fit my 181. So in the end buyers please be aware of manufacturing defaults, quality control for B-square is terrible.
Pros: Let's you use your iron sights along with your scope
Cons: Loosens up if you don't use loctite....

Picture looks better than the parts

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on August 27, 2011
I was disappointed with the overall fit and finish in the quality of the mount. Being a machinist myself, I would not let a part go to a customer looking like that. The mount puts the scope high (over the original sights) there is a lot of flex in the system. I may be making my own out of steel in the future.
Pros: easy to set up
Cons: poor anodizing too flexible should be steel...

Didn't work for me

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on July 6, 2011
The item seems very sturdy and appears to be a good scope mount but this item will NOT fit my Ruger Mini-14's. I tried it with two older mini-14's (1979-1981) as well as two brand new mini-14's. The B-Square bolt stop cover plate is literally twice as thick as my existing bolt stop cover plates on all my mini-14's. I looked at it very closely under high magnification. This means the bolt stop cover will NOT fit on any of the four mini-14's we tried it on. Contrary, we tried two other brands of this exact same type of scope mount, and they both fit immediately. We had a gunsmith look at this, and he agreed, the B-Square bolt stop cover plate would require modification for it to fit on our models of this firearm.
Cons: would not mount on firearm...

mount allows use of iron sights which is why I used it, but the rings that came with striped out and I had to buy new rings. money saved by buying through Optics planet went to the purchase of steel rings.

Mount for 3 gun matches

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on December 17, 2009
After the failure of an inferiror mount on my series 181 mini-14, I am trying this mount. After two matches it still holds zero. It has 3 attachment points which required precision installation, but I was able to do it. It bolts to the slide stop cover plate plus two hex screws contact the top of the receiver--a three point attachment. Hopefully this will be durable. I used lock tite on attachment screws.
Pros: Works, Holds zero
Cons: Durability unknown...
