I forget where I was reading it but someone wrote up a reply to a post about the M1 Garand and why they would buy one...it really inspired me so I"m now the proud owner of an M1 Garand built in 1942 (according to the seller) and (also according to the seller) it was never sent to korea or anywhere else and re-sold (like that orginization that buys back the Garand and re-sells them but you have to be a member of a shooting club to buy from the ><) back to the US. I"m really happy to have it, the seller threw in 5 clips, the cleaning kit that goes with it, a sling and I bought a bayonet.

Pics to follow, gata find the camera lol ^.^. Thanks to all those people that make those gun shows possible, if you're a member here I couldn't have bought an M1 w/o folks like you so thanks

ps. Having trouble getting the bayonet on...am I doing something wrong?

It's mine pride 1943 M1 Garand CMP.
My colleagues from Legal Files gave me this rifle when I was retiring and have fired it twice on separate occasions. The stock was in atrocious condition and I replaced it with a commercial production walnut stock and finished that with tung oil finish. It looks about the same as stocks on M1's did when I was in the army except missing the dings and scratches. The barrel is SA 4-4-48.
The internals are a mixmaster and I am not qualified to determine which might be correct for this rifle. Everything is in excellent condition but the same as it came from CMP except for the replacement stock.

USA Ranger , Have trained with the Garand and many other weapons and would give the Garand a ten.. One LT wanted to join in with us when we were doing the Bayonet practice. He got nicked when the Bayonet slipped through the old scaberd.
