M1 Garand
 
got rid of my remington 700 xcr today and picked up a shooter mixed parts m1 garand. rear sight needs to be reworked but the barrel gauges 2.5ish and the op-rod is straight. everything looks good on it cept the sights which are replacements. all the parts seem to be SA marked. i would say its fair condition but i intend to use it as a shooter as im not much on collectors pieces too pricey a gun to have fun with. its a springfield armory.

Very nice. Change the springs and go shoot that thing. And it looks like about a mid 1943, with the orig forged trigger group.

Looks like an orig bar-lock sight? Hard to tell in the pics. Does it just spin? Have you taken the sight apart? Check to see what is stripped.

How are you set on clips?

it just spins i think something is stripped as the screw holding the windage knob in is broken. looks like it wasnt put together correctly over-tightened and broke.
