    Default 1944 Springfield Armory M1 Garand - New pic at end

    My SA SG arrived, finally, this afternoon having had two trips to Memphis, spending an evening in New Jersey and finally here two days later. I hate FedEx!!

    I have to say that I am thrilled. It is a mixmaster - bolt and trigger housing are HRA - but I have only done a basic field strip.

    From the SN, it is a June/July 1944 build. The barrel is an SA 1-55.

    The wood is in wonderful condition - a nice Korean Conflict era JLG marked stock with nicely matched hand guards.

    I'll clean her up and hope to send some rounds downrange this weekend.

    It might not be Matching, but it's still a Fine looking old soldier! Will, no doubt, shoot just as well as it looks too, I imagine! Nice Garand!

    LOOKING GOOD!!!!
    If you don't mind me asking. Is this a CMP Garand??
    I shoot at the CMP Western Games Garand match. I love mine.
    I wish you a good "PING" at the range.
    Have fun!!!! I can't wait to hear a range report!

    Yup, it is a CMP Service Grade Springfield. They appear to have inspected and graded a bunch of US rifles and the overall quality of care shows. I have a set of springs ready to go, just in case. I can't wait to hear that "ping!"

    You have a problem on your hands!!!! Garand fever will soon set in and the only cure is another garand to keep that One happy. I hope if you are married your wife will be understanding. It is difficult for me because I only live 45 min. From the south store. I only have two, all correct 43 and collector grade 54. You can't go wrong with a garand in the collection. Marty

    After some TLC of hand-rubbed boiled linseed oil on the stock and a good all-around cleaning.
