Looking for more information about using a Schuster on the BM 59. Will it fit as is? Does it require a spacer? Did it help? Thanks in advance, John McP. (JRA, with tri-comp)

I have no first hand experience in this area but given the design of the M1 gas cylinder locking screw and that of the BM59 my humble opinion is it ain't go to work.

After a great deal of reading, it seems it depends. Apparently some BM 59 have Garand gas systems in which it will work, other not so much. From readings it seems that Tricomp and short barrel versions are different, and the rest might work. There are postings of Schusters installed and working, some using a washer to space the nut out the required amount. I cannot get response from any of the postings, and many are old.
