Default My Dream come true....

Picked it up finally...ordered it on gun broker.

Springfield M1A Standard.

Ordered some german surplus ammo too. Took it out shooting and instantly fell in love.

Now, to order a ton of 20 round mags.

Better shots to come later...





My dream come true...

Congratulations! Welcome to the club. Just remember that if one is good, more is better, they can grow into a fetish.!!

Might I suggest one of these little guys, much tidier than a empty .45 shell case.

Badger Ordnance Bolt Roller Greaser M1A - MidwayUSA

Great purchase, you sir have good taste!!

Now, that's a rifle. Congratulations, enjoy it.

Hahaha, she's not the wife, but while in bed with her she kept complaining when she rolled over onto the rifle. I didn't complain? Eh, she'll get used to it!

Seeing as you brought that up, I have a few questions...

The springfield manual (not the technical manual it came with) doesnt provide very good information on cleaning and maintenance.

I'm planning to pick up an M1A cleaning kit (to go in the butt stock) but I'm wondering what types of oil/grease I should be using, and what parts get greased vs. oil

First of all use the GI cleaning kit for show only. Get a good one piece rod to use in the barrel, preferably a good carbon fiber one. Why would you want to run a multi-piece rod through a barrel like that and risk damage? The grease you hear about most is Tetra gun grease for M1/M1A's. Good stuff but you don't need anything special. Here is a link with good pictures of all the lube points.
