The Boers seemed to over power the British with a bunch of Mausers... Isnt that why they designed the P14?


Really, I keed, I keed... I like all the mil-surps, its just fun to poke fun at you silly Mosin People...


I have the No.1 Mk. III so the whole outta headspace thing worries me. I dont think its as easy to fix as the No.4's

Waaaaay too many people over think the whole headspace thing. Want to know a real dirty way to check it? Unscrew the bolt head and remove the extractor. Next put 3 layers of 3m masking tape on the head of a dummy cartridge.(just pull out the bullet with a pair of pliers). Next screw the bolt head back on and re-insert the bolt into the rifle. Very gently try to close the bolt. Once you feel resistance stop. If the handle of the underside of the bolt is more than .050 though from the receiver (basically not touching) your headspace is fine. Like I said that is a dirty way to check. *I take no responsibility what you do with this info*.

Garand was born in Canada. They would not allow him to have a Military style rifle. And Weblys and Enfields just didn't do it for him. He then moved to the free nation of North America.

Careful, If Odumbo has his way you won't even be allowed to own a M1 military style semi-auto rifle....

Hey not likely. The move to disarm Americans goes back to King George. And Obama is no King George.

His father moved to the USA when Garand was a very young boy, after his mother died.

You may try checking your facts, every once in a while, before posting comments. It would save you some embarrassment.
