    Thanks, Garands are one of my favorite rifles along with AKs.

    You should get it, kernel. They sure aren't going down in price. I was just on their website yesterday. I think I may get a new stock for mine from them. They are cut like the WW2 stocks with the thinner grip, etc.

    The guy in the video didn't Know how to insert an enblock clip and is just asking for "Garand thumb". And I'll bet those rapid fire rounds are 20 or 30 feet apart at 100 yards

    saw are nice CMP garand on wednesday for under 1K, should have bought it

    I too have a 1943 Winchester, 1954 re-arsenaled, then sent to holland then returned to the CMP, I have replaced most of the springfield parts getting expensive

    if the rifle could only talk

    Shoot Garand matches with a CMP Winchester/Danish rifle with a VAR barrel that came with lock bar sights. Got it and a IH from the ODCMP via my dad when alive. Head him order the rifles on my dime, he was exempt. Wanna say the Winny was $350 & the IH was $450. Those VAR barrels shoot good!

    GS455,,

    Paul does some real good videos,and I enjoy them,,, but I think he's the only one in history that has ever tried to bump fire a Mauser 98K !!!!

    I can't recall a one he's done that he hasn't gone into a bump fire binge in! Ya got to give him credit though,,he does it pretty well! Way better than me! He must have deep pockets or great sponsors for ammo.

    Just picking Paul!
