B Square mount

I bought a B square mount for my Ruger Mark II many years ago. I liked the fact that no drilling or tapping was needed since you remove both front and rear sights instead. Over time the rear wedge that slides into the rear sight mount has worn and now the mount and scope are very loose. The piece is made out of aluminum and has worn, any ideas where to look for a replacement piece would be helpful. I see nothing when I search B square on the web.

Maybe a .001 or so piece of shim stock under the dovetail to raise the mount up in the slot some would tighten it up. I have something like .018 under my stock site because it was loose in the dovetail slot.

You could drill and tap the dovetail on the rail and install 2 small set screws (#4) to tighten it up would work too probably. I bet any local machine shop/gunsmith would do that for $10 or so.

Thanks I might just try that shim, by moving the rear rail mount up a tad that might just work...
