Was thinking about ordering the the barreled action w/o stock from CMP and putting it in a black polymer stock since it would not be all original anyway. Any got any pics of one like this?
Did not see one in the picture thread.

I have an M1 Garand in a Ramline stock. I have been well pleased with it.

Ramline no longer makes the Garand stock (AFAIK) They show up from time to time on evilbay. If you go that route, make sure that the stock comes in a complete set and includes the rubber recoil pad. The steel buttplate will not fit.

I snagged the pic from www.gunaccessories.com.

They list it, but that's no promise they have it in stock.

I have a camo ramline stock. Its ok... I put it on the rifle while I was redoing the wood stock so I could still shoot my garand.

For the price that you will spend on the ram line, you can buy a Boyds finshed wood stock.
If stock hardware is needed, Sarco sells the kits for cheap.
(read both hardware and stock is less than $100)

I have a Garand in a Ramline stock and am very happy with it. Nice and tight. I still have the very beat up wood stock if I ever want to go back to original. But probably won't. I like it!

Nice EBR. I'm liking the idea so far.

I picked up an H&R someone had slapped polymer on, ripped that shit off real quick and put honest to goodness wood back on it. Sent the stock to a friend in South Carolina for one of his builds...


the stocks do not feel right, look right, nor do they bed tight enough for me.

Bubbadizing would be diefined as an irreversible modification to a firearm. What is the big deal with swapping for a synthetic stock? You can swap it back again with no premanent mod to the weapon. It is tougher than a wood stock, will be less likely to swell crack, etc. due to weather and thus will make shooting mre consistent and the weapon more weatherproof. No different than putting a sythetic on an M1A IMHO.

You guys who like to thinkof yourselves as "purists" just crack me up.

Yeah it's just a rack grade barreled action from CMP - SA Danish loaner coming back.
If it was a WWII or Korean era Garand with original wood obviously I would leave it that way.
If they could have had the polymer stocks in WWII/Korea I'm sure they would have gone to that, have to consider functionality. But if I find a wood stock in fair shape at a really low price, I would go with that. Budget dictates right now. This will be a budget shooter M1, not a safe queen.
