And so it begins. My Vintage 1944 M1 Garand had issues. I broke it down to refinish the stock only to find a long crack that made it unusable. Fortunately, the CMP was right there to the rescue. This new stock set which is made right here in the USA is made of Walnut just like the original! Next it's off for period correct staining and to have the Springfield Armory WWII era cartouches stamped in it. When you redo or restore a rifle like this you have to do it justice.. I dedicate this to the greatest generation. Most are gone now but will never be forgotten! More pics coming soon.

I'm about done gathering the needed parts to refurbish this beast as it should be. It was produced by Springfield armory in April 1944. The only "non original" part that I may not replace is the barrel. It's fitted with a barrel from 1952 which isn't uncommon as most of these rifles were reworked for service in Korea etc. it also has a post war rear sight aperture, operating rod and elevation and lock bar assy. Those are going bye bye for the correct WWII era parts. Once the gauges arrive that are used to measure the muzzle wear I'll decide on whether or not I'm going to replace the barrel. Here's whats coming!

Correct WWII Type 3 Lockbar Assembly..

In addition to that I've ordered a set of brand new reproduction stock metal, new rear sight, operating rod and some assorted tools and gauges!

I'll be sure and post some pics once she's finished! Smile
