  1. Semi-Auto Rifles
    Hello all! I'm trying to buy a CMP Garand in the post Sept 4th world. I put in all my paperwork, including sending a copy of my Sportsmans Pistol Permit. I received an email from the CMP, and they can not process the sale until my permit has a "Semi Auto Rifle" addendum added to it to be...

    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 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? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Milsurp Rifles
    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...
  9. Milsurp Rifles
    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...

    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.
  12. Milsurp Rifles
    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...

    Finally going to order a M1. Service or special? If special 3006 or 308? Mostly a paper puncher. Thanks.

    Garand goes kaboom... They believe it fired out of battery.... No serious injuries, except for the Garand.... http://www.outdoorhub.com/news/2014/11/19/video-m1-garand-explodes-shooters-hands/
  15. Milsurp Rifles
    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. Thanks, Pete I stitched 2 images together to give you an idea of the condition.
