okay just got my first garand a few weeks ago and i had a chance to shoot is last weekend. well first to the gun, its a late 44 SA that is not even close to matching. the person i got it from got it in the 70's from the cmp ( the .gov version ) and it has not been shot really since the late 80's. the barrel is a 46 SA, the receiver has the SN 29027xx ( read online its a late 44 ), and the trigger group is a complete HRA. the stock has no marks except the proof mark which does not have the serifs.

well its not very accurate, it shoots like 6 to 8 inches at 100 yards. ( before you say its me both my 03a3 and my carbine do 2 inches with me shooting both ). i dont want it for a collector value to me its a shooter. my carbine is a 43 and the 03a3 is a 44, so i am happy with the garand being a 44, so no suggestions of selling it. what does it take to change the barrel and where is the best place to get one ?

also i did peen the barrel so the front sight is solid, so is the rear.

send it to either Springfield Armory Inc, or if you have the money, to Dean's Gun Restorations. Both shops do great work and will make a tack driver out of your rifle.
