No it was just a bone stock surplus M1, his father used one like it on Iwo Jima but not that one. He wanted to create a tribute to honor his grandfather.

I'm curious as to how they "screen" the projects for the show. How do they ensure they have enough content to keep filming? it can't be based purely on walk-ins, and how many people in the world are looking for whacky custom work like the show portrays?
The majority of the flak the show gets is based on the nutty, impractical projects they do, which seem to be fueled purely by "customer" demand. Is there a certain level of professional responsibility on the part of a gunsmith to warn customers away from work that would ruin a valuable or historical piece. Say, for example, if the M1 garand tribute project HAD been a butchery of the grandfather's actual issued weapon?

It's television entertainment, nothing more. People keep trying to shape it into reality. The fact of the matter is if they did no one would watch it, because it would be boring as hell. It was the reason "Top Gun" was such an exciting movie. If they scripted the entire thing off of actual carrier operations, you would have fallen asleep watching it.
