How about a nice milsurp posting to cleanse the palate. I'm not sure what is going on with them members of the forum, but it seems like High School drama and BS. I came here to talk about firearms, and will continue to do so.
So, to start with I don't have pictures yet, but I can try to...
I want this!
Pictures of this World War II era rifle are flying around the internet because of it's delicious secret. It's not a historic artifact… it's even better.
I am considering buying an M1 Garand in functional, but terrible shape. The stock is a mess. Is this something I could change myself without any issues to contend with, or would I need a gunsmith?

I've been keeping my Garand I've got from CMP about a year ago in the hard case it came in locked in a closet. Is this ok or should I put it in a gun sock in my safe. I'm not so concerned about security as I am about moisture and possible rusting. I've read that it's not a good idea to keep...
So Ive gotten the 1967 M715 Jeep Kaiser to the pint where I'm doing radios and rifle mounts. While the most widely recognized rifle for that period was the AR, in light of the hysteria likely during a parade or car show, I'm leaning towards a demilled garand. My understanding is that they...
Just found an old m1 Garand in my parents closet, I have no previous knowledge of this rifle.
From the markings I think it was produced in September/October of 1943.
Cal 30 M1
The bolt has 6538287-SA
under that is B??-2-0, cant make out what the first...
I will order one if i have to. Does anyone have a copy of the NRA reprint "The M1 Rifle"? I want to glass bed one of my stocks. I have a few books and i am familiar with the process. I understand it has some information on accurizing the rifle. I would like to borrow this book.
Thanks in advance.
Early on when I received my Garand I've been having a very difficult time focusing on the target at 100 and 200 yards.
I can definitely hit the targets at these ranges with irons. Which is a testament to the overall beast the Garand is even by today's standards.
But I can't deny I have...
Took apart my garand and now I can't get the trigger group to lock back into the stock. It's the trigger guard that has a wave to it (no hole at the end). Seems the latch goes half way and then it seems to be obstructed by something and won't go all the way down. I've given a good amount of...
As a rule of thumb, you're generally supposed to not use commercial ammo in a Garand. In my searches for ammo and gas plugs, I found this company selling a ported gas plug. The best part? They did some EXTENSIVE testing with commercial ammo. So, not only can we see the benefits of their plug...
Another quick and easy transfer by DSI. In and out in 10 minutes.
Did I mention that the Garand is beautiful, too? H&R Receiver, Special Grade.
I stitched 2 images together to give you an idea of the condition.
The Civilian Marksmanship Program describes their "Advanced Maintenance Class" as "for individuals interested in knowing how the M1 Garand rifle functions in detail
just one of the great pictures at the site
