Nothing but pictures....close ups...slow panning shots....of a WWII era M1 Garand. This particular Garand was made at Springfield, MA in September 1944, has correct receiver and barrel, was at some point sent to the armory where it received a truly butt ugly stock and mismatched upper forend, in a nice orangy color with a red number painted on the stock. I know, I know. Garand collector purists will recoil in horror at this, but.... I had it restored/reconditioned by Dean's Gun Restorations, all new parkerized and wood. She's a beauty, take a look. Have any pics or videos of your Garand(s)?
