Default M-1 Garand I just aquired

Hello all, RON L here - SERE SURPLUS


I recently got this Springfield Armory M-1 Garand, It was obtained in a Part Trade, Part Trade for wood work, I have approx $450.00 wrapped up in it, as well as my labor refinishing wood stocks, I have not fired it yet and have been aquainting myself with it, as I was more familuar with the M-14/M1A, I will work with ths one till I can trade or buy a M-1A, see Pics:

Looks like you got a good deal. Make sure you only shoot military surplus ammo in it and no commercial so the op rod doesn't get bent.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
