Re: M1 Garand

M1Ds are arsenal modifications of standard M1 models. The barrels are from 51 to 53 so they were not made near the end of WWII . The CMP documented M1Ds carry a premium over undocumented rifles, does the one being offered have any paper work, if not it is worth the sum of its parts. The barrel will ...

Re: Garand found locally. Educate me, please.

Good info by Charles, also the stacking swivel screw looks to be ready to fall out. I would not be in a hurry on this one unless its about 600.00 bucks. Hsve you looked at cmp rifles? Does this rifle have the chalky gray finish, not crazy about that either.

I went to it several years ago and found some nice stuff, one visit I purchased 3 1911s from a guy and once found a IHC/SA gap letter in original condition for 700.00. I stopped going as it was just to c...

Re: RC mauser laminate and Mosin shellac finish

Thanks for the post, I have a Russian M44 that is as new with the flaking finish you describe. I will give it a try. I cringe to think what I destroyed many years ago when getting M1s from cmp with oily stocks that I cleaned . I know I should probably do some jail time for actions. LOL
