Alright I have ordered my first M1 from CMP and while I wait(only 2 weeks since order confermation for a SA FG) for the order to post as processing. I need some reading material.

I know about surplusrifle.com but what other sites are good for general info/history of the M1?

Also what serial numbers would fall into the time frame for the invasion of Tarawa?
Reason I ask is, my late grand uncle was in this invasion. He was one of 9 survivors from his unit who made it through the invasion. I thought it would be neet to have a M1 that would match this time frame. Thanks one and all.

And have even IM'd you site to pull down the Garand field and repair manuals to read while you're wasting away waiting on the rifle.

For serial # and other obscure Q's, Jouster is king ( but not excatly a great site to hang out at).

www.jouster.com/cgi-bin/garand/garand.pl

These others have great US rifle forums.
