ok so at work today i get this guy, maybe about 28 to 30, looking at a M1 garand from springfield. It was a used gun so i let him fire off a clip in the range to test it out. He loved it and so on. All is well...... then he turns to me... flips the rifle over and asks if theres a kit to remove this plate and put on a 30 round mag.

I dont even own a Garand (Yet) and i cringed at the thought of this guy getting any more ideas.

Just tell him to get and M1A instead. They're about the same price for Spingfield anyway.

At least you used the word "clip" in the correct way.

ya but he wants a 30-06, so i showed him the Garand, my thought was "Its a Garand how can you go wrong?" shit he only wanted it for target anyway. i think he will be better off with a 10/22

A BM-59 is .308. A BAR is .30-06, but yeah, a BM-59 in .30-06 would be perfect.
