You may be right. But, one BPT mount I have came from a lot of military surplus parts purchased at auction from the Gov. It does not have a serial on it. Of coarse, that info was by word of mouth. I trust the man I got many parts from, but memories get shuffled over time. There is one source that could answer your question for sure, but lately he has been tough to get a reply from. I hope he is just busy and not ill.

Thanks from Jersey Devil and XM25Ren

This Brookfield Night Vision AN/PVS-4 scope adapter is so rare and finding pictures on the net is almost impossible so here are a few more detailed pictures, enjoy.

For you folks keeping up with this build, I have decided on on using a new AN/PVS-4 Gen II for my XM25 as it will be in keeping with the time period of this build.

My XM25 "Brook"(short for Brookfield) will be equipped as she would been back in the 1990s during, "Desert Storm".

Not all were equipped with bi-pods, the ones that were used the Harris LS with the BPTco bi-pod mount.

I just trying to get a handle on this, would like to use a Harris which can be found and a close representative mount to the BPTco mount.

Sure. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of mine before it was installed but what I was going to tell Ren is that Jon Wolfe installed it and I know he can make something up if he is doing the build which I believe Ren was going to have him do. My build is in the final phases but due to work and travel I won't be able to intrduce it until April. I will take plenty of pictures then...

Thanks from XM25Ren

There was a concern over whether this BPTco.mount would fit my GunWorks receiver, not anymore. Its a fit made in heaven!

Looks like all the pieces of the puzzle are finally here, nothing left to do but get her built.

Just for fun
