I've been having fun with my M1. Shooting some..work on it some..just trying to learn more and do some of the work myself. I've put in new internals and peened the splines.
Now I'm wondering how much more to mess with it. I don't want to ruin a piece of history so I'm cautious about what to do. Can you help me figure out what I've got?
I was told it was a 1943 receiver rebarrled and rebuilt at SA in 1947.
Bolt D2828T-12SA S-040<>
Receiver Leg A2 D28291 27
Hammer C 46008-3 SA
Trigger Guard C-46025-1-SA
Trigger Housing D28290-18-SA
Stock Cartouches SA/GAW (weak SA) with crossed cannons next to it
Small crossed cannons on pistol grip butt
Circle P on the inside of the pistol grip
It's a great rifle. Is this anything special?... Thanks for your help.
Stock has all the ordnance markings...sounds good and if barrel is good I would leave it and shoot it lots.
After I got my first Garand, I got bit. I thought it might be best not to alter it. Needed an excuse to get another one and found the following. Any details you can give me would be appreciated.
Receiver leg A21 D 2891 36 (Stamped)
A4 2-65 (electro pencil)
Bolt 6528287-SA A-10
Trigger Housing IHC D6528290
Trigger Guard No Markings
Hammer C46008-3 SA
Barrel LMR D6535448 12 52 A5 P M
The first rifle groups as well as this one. Even though I thought it would be tighter with the LMR barrel. Still got a few things to work on with this one.
I'll try and post pictures this weekend. Thanks..
