Wow here come the snobs, I'm not a novice, I own several guns. Gunsmithed some of them to a finer condition. Restored my grandfathers m1 carbine to its wartime glory. Yes this is my first garand, it is my first because this was the first one I've found that had matching numbers. I have asked for help and not received any. I've only received comments telling me my rifle is not what I think it is. I've looked hundreds of garands in the hopes of finding one that was as close to original as possible. This was the first. I've sent the info I've collected and sent it to real experts in the hopes of an actual authentication.
