    Default I need some M1 Gerand info

    I picked up a barreled springfield receiver( no wood ) at the CMP store saturday, and was wondering where i could get some information on it. the one book i have says that a 152XXXX is early 1943..but all the other parts look like they were installed in the 1950's as thats what is stamped on the barrel..is there anyplace that i could find exactly what parts would have came on it when it was new?

    I'm glad ya got one Sam I know how you feel about these things and it's great that ya got one ya could fix up !!!
    well we didn't get you the BAR, jack said if we ever see one he gets first shot at it..haha.

    .i really don't know how much fixin up i will have to do on this one, unless i want to hunt for the correct parts for the date.I need a stock so i can take it to the range and see what kind of groups it shoots..we stuck the gauges in it at the store and they weren't too bad (i hope) M=3+ C=3 ..so the numbers arent the greatest but they aren't the worst either..i think i'm going to get a composite stock for it until i can find a really nice older one from the right year. the rest of the metal is in really good shape, and so is the finish..

    PLEASE!!!!!!!! That's the most disgusting thing ever posted on Gunco!!!!!!!! I guess it's your choice ,but man that Garand does not deserve to be treated that way. PLASTIC STOCK on the greatest battle rifle ever made??? Please re-consider this decision! It just ain't right! . I don't want to sound disrespectfull & of course it's none of my business..... but........GEEZE.. Could we help you find the correct stock you want? Convince you to buy a Boyds? Anything else to help? Oh man........ I gotta....... go have a smoke........( Sorry for the rant)

    I'm looking at a Garand and the owner says I can take it out and try it before I buy it, what kind of groups is a shooters grade good for, with surplus ammo? or whitebox 30-06
