View Full Version : Garand Gunsmith?

02-21-2011, 8:09 PM
Anyone know of a reputable smith that works on M1 Garands? I'm thinking I need a recrown and want to give the work to someone who knows these rifles. I live in the Bay Area so closer is better, but am also willing to ship. Any help out there?

Try Fulton Armory. They are out of state but they have experience with Garands. Any gunsmith should be able to recrown your barrel but if you want major work done, FA has a long list services they can do for your rifle.

I've used Deans Guns Restorations to install barrels on & headspace some stripped M1 Garand receivers I had. Work was done very well for a great price. I believe it cost more to ship / insure everything than it cost to have Dean do the work. Everything operated properly and shot accurately when I got them back, would definitely recommend him.

VERY good M1A/M14/Garand plumber. He built me a pair of match prepped Garands.
