Default M1 Garand grease

Anyone know where in the Sacramento area I can get some hands on instruction on maintaining the M1 Garand? I tried reading several books. I just don't learn well that way. Need to do to learn. Any help?

If you have specific questions, ask away!


I hope you already know to be careful with commercial modern 30/06, right?

+1 on the How to Grease Your Garand link posted by Tanner68. Tetra Gun Grease from Turner's, Midway or wherever, works well for me.

OP, it's not difficult.


You can find videos for field stripping, loading, and shooting.

On Youtube I have even seen official WW2 Army videos about the weapon.



Any of the stuff mentioned here works, including Lubriplate 930, TW-25B, RIG, etc etc.

I have white lithium on mine because that's what I have on hand.

High temp wheel bearing grease does just fine. I use Maxima without any issues.

Ok.. Tanner68.... great link. Seems to be the exact information as in Scott Duff's book, only way better color pictures, and organized so I don't have to keep flipping pages back and forth!!

Thank you all, and if any of you ever do hear about a place to get hands on, I'd still be interested.
