The 60 M1 Garand Parts / Re: Part 1 - Barrel
« on: March 08, 2015, 02:31:31 PM »
Original Garrand WWII barrels were gauged as high as 2.75 TE when NEW with the majority just around 1.75. TE of a new production SA barrel during World War II ran anywhere from approximately 1.0 to 3.5. Pre World War II SA barrels were usually in the 0.0 to 1.0 range. Winchester barrels were generally in the -1.0 to 2.0 range new.

The 60 M1 Garand Parts / Re: Part 44 - Stock
« on: March 08, 2015, 02:20:19 PM »
The 4 original manufacturers of M1 Garand stocks were:
Springfield Armory
Winchester Repeating Arms
Overton Woodworking Corp.
Harrington and Richardson Arms Co.

The differences between the stocks are in the curves of the pistol grip area, and the "Horseshoe" area on the top of the stock where the back of the receiver sets.

Walnut and Maple, are the typical wood choices for Garand Stocks.  Hardness of Walnut and Maple being the major factor.  Of course, you can bring your Garand into the 21st century with a synthetic stock:

General M1 Discussion / M1 Carbine
« on: March 05, 2015, 04:10:17 PM »
The M1 Garand (officially designated as U. S. rifle, caliber .30, M1, later simply called Rifle, Caliber .30, M1, also abbreviated as US Rifle, Cal. .30, M1) is a semi-automatic rifle chambered for the .30-06 Springfield rifle cartridge. It was the first standard-issue semi-automatic rifle.  Called "the greatest battle implement ever devised" by General George S. Patton, the Garand officially replaced the bolt-action M1903 Springfield as the standard service rifle of the United States Armed Forces in 1936 (although the switch was not instantaneous) and was subsequently replaced by the selective fire M14, starting in 1957. During World War II, the M1 gave U.S. forces a distinct advantage in firefights against their Axis enemies, as their standard-issue rifles were more effective than the Axis' slower-firing bolt-action rifles. The M1 continued to be used in large numbers until 1963 and to a lesser degree until 1976. Like its predecessor, the M1 originated from the Springfield Armory. Today, the M1 remains in use for drill purposes.
