Hello all, I just joined and I am very exited by the information found in this forum. I just recently acquired a M1 Garand rifle. Cosmetically looks to be in very good condition. The receiver and trigger assembly look brand new. Anyways, I have not yet fired it, the previous owner indicated that he had fired it not long ago. I wanted to know if there are any suggestions on what to inspect before I take it to the range and fire with it. This is definitely my first rifle and had been looking for one for a while. Thank you very much in advance for any help.
