    My Latest Garand Build.....................Updated :Range Report


    I have always wanted to do a accuracy garand build, here is the story
    Awhile back that I picked up a unissued 7.62 Navy barrel on another gun forum. This was the heart of this rifle





    I installed the NOS barrel on a real nice SA 5.4 receiver ,all I had to do was lap the bolt to get it to headspace.
    Did some work to trigger group , has a nice 5lb pull.
    List of parts are:
    Excellent condition USGI NM front and rear sights and trigger group. Balance of the rest of parts are NOS unissued.
    NOS Op Rod, NM gas cylinder, 65 series SA bolt, gas screw , lock and internals.
    Stock is commercial and has had wood removed for function and accuracy .Did some NM mod work to the rear handguard but that's where I decided to leave the rest to the experts. Sent the rifle off to Ted Brown for a bedding job and NM work to front handguard. He remove the liner, glue and screwed lower band to front handguard
    I am happy with his work and pleased on how this build turned out
    Now to take a vacation day off work and spend time at the range with her to see just how accurate she really is

            There it is, I found it. Sweetness it sure is. Its scary how close your rifle is and mine are, great minds must think alike. If I could figure out how too get the pictures off the Wife's IPad I would add them.

              To say I am envious is an understatement. Nice work, nice rifle. Thanks for sharing the photos too.

                    Beautifully done Bill. Did you unitize the HG's?

                        Sorry, you originally said that. I have to learn to read I guess. Nice.

                            Finally got to the range. Embarrassed to say its the first time in 1 1/2years.
                            I know the rifle is capable of better if I do my part, may give it another go tomorrow

                              Sure looks like it's a shooter to me. I suspect once that barrel breaks in and the receiver settles fully in the bedding you'll actually see an improvement just from that. My NM 308 did.
