Lets see if we cant get a nice picture thread going for m1 garands! The more and more I toy with my M1 garand I realize that it IS the ONE rifle for me. Or THE one rifle I would grab for bugging out to the ranch. I have Long range rigs,AK's,AR's,Shotguns and pistols. Some handle better have more tacticool stuff on em but when it comes down to it the M1 garand for me is THE battle rifle IMO. I have a connection with my M1 garand that I have with VERY few of my guns. It may not be the best or the nicest collectors grade but it is mine. Mine is a SA receiver imported from blu sky, I guess I got lucky and got one of the ones blu sky didn't ruin mine out shoots my buddies NM garand. I find it quite odd but hey if it works don't fix it. I'll try and get pics up here soon but post away fellas!

This is a good example (there are others better) of an AFPG Garand. For lack of a NM stamp between the gas cyl rings, this rifle otherwise meets CMP NM Type 1, Service Grade criteria. It's not JCG match legal. Hopefully soon, I'll be able to see what it'll do with proper match ammo vs. M2 ball...

All the parts of my rifle are either SA or HRA. The op-rod, gas plug, and trigger group are all HRA. There is no mixing there. Everything else is SA, and appears to be well fitted. I have no doubt that this rifle was built originally as a competition rifle. The stock is glass bedded and fits the receiver quite well. If I could eventually find it's exact history, I'd be completely stoked!

My blu sky garand has a NM stamped on the bolt if thats of any significance. I think it might be stamped a few other places too. Nice rifle!

ChrisO
02-16-2010, 11:53 PM
Actually just stamped on the bolt as far as I can tell but like I said took it shooting with my buddies NM garand and it smoked it. My buddy thought it was odd so we put both rifles in a vice to make sure it wasn't just him being a crappy shot and it out shot it all day. He says he still kicks him self in the A** because he had the opportunity to get my rifle before I got it "from my ladies father she got it for me last christmas :)" .

I agree they are the coolest battle rifles ever invented, and even by today's standards a good SHTF rifle if need be.

The Garand is one of those special guns. I find it to be very ergomonic. There's no magazine jutting out or space age sights. It has wood nearly to the muzzel. The irons are far more capable than me. You get eight rounds or semi auto 30 06! If you need more, you are waisting ammo. A fine weapon indeed!

I think there is potential in revisiting the en bloc clips. They are disposable and if put in modern arms chambered in 5.56 you could get clips of 15 rouns or more.

Maybe not that, but I see the fact that they auto eject as being useful.
When seconds can be the difference between life and death for our guys in the military it might be nice if on the BHO you could also set it to eject your mag when it's empty so you don't have to take your trigger finger away from being ready.
That might not be worth the hassle though haha and more parts means more stuff to break.

Still waiting for my Garand from CMP!

A Service-Grade post-WWII 1955 SA that is almost all SA and very near new, and a Service-Grade Winnie that is almost all WRA except for the VAR barrel and a PB follower. I also have an HRA (no pix) that came with some vintage USGI wood (that I asked for) but "literally" new metal. The HRA shoots the best without any MODs, but the SA with the Smith Muzzle Brake shoots better still.

Here's my 1955 SA. I did not think to take any pictures before I dissembled it. Here it is stripped and cleaned ready to be greased and reassembled. The original operating rod spring was very gunked up so I bought a new one from Orion 7.

My latest project. Built from a CMP woodless Winchester. For you purest out there, no permanent modification was done. Remains to be seen if the bipod will effect accuracy. Hopefully I can take it out and get it sighted in next week.

I purchased it with a New Boyd Stock set, and NOS barrel S/A 2-55. I like it a lot, and it's in such great shape. I got more pics, but without posting them all, I am waiting to dig out my tri-pod & put better close ups on the post. Here are the ones I came up with so far.

Unfortunately, this is the only picture I have available. Mine is a Springfield from 1943. It was a "parts gun", but it fires just fine, and is accurate. Not bad for $350.00 15 years ago.

Thanks, she is a Navy Trophy Rifle won at West Coast matches last year. Springfield Armory born in 53ish and was updated with oprods and other improvements and has electropencil markings by marine armorers in 66 (O-66). Stayed in Crane Indiana ever since. Nice and uncirculated. Gave it to my father as a gift last year and waiting on my Mk II in 7.62 coming soon from this years matches.
