Must be a macro setting...Very nice rifle

The sound of the empty E-Clip ejecting and bouncing around is priceless...or $8 if you had to pay for the ammo.
I love my Garand. Yours looks like it is in nice shape. My 1943 example with original barrel looks like a 67 year old rifle that was shot everyday since it was built.
Yup, that "ping" sound is priceless. I haven't shot her yet, but can't get enough watching all kind of movies & clips on youtube.
I keep the original stock that has proof stamp, and installed this new stock for range use. My original stock also shows some life, but no cracks.

very nice. my first C&R rifle was a Lee Enfield No.I Mk.III*. i had to wait a while before i could afford the M1. i think it was my 13th C&R.

Thanks for the kind words guys! Since then, I added MRT leather sling & an original 1944 muzzle cover that I got from CMP Forum. (Will post pictures later when I have time).
