        Out here in SoCal you don't see many of those that you have hardly ever for sure. At least I haven't in 25 years of going to gun shows, there's a few SoCal guys that deal in private sales and know and network with other guys that have stuff we don't see openly that I also don't so their opinion may differ and would be more accurate actually.

              I meant the Breda receivers specifically, I haven't seen many of those near me, but there are plenty of receivers.

                Amazing collection, Charles. How many work hours do you usually spend on a single one btw?

                  Hmm honestly between assembly and test firings and working out glitches maybe 10 hrs apiece most glitches were failure to feed all related to op rod springs to long and hammer springs to stiff/to long ,op rod 19 inches remember that small pressure burst can only do so much I’m guessing back in ww2 ammo was pretty hot ,when reloading like 48 gr of imr 4895 which works really well spring settings are the key that’s my thoughts

                    I have built many Garands from scratch and never once trimmed a Op Rod or hammer spring to get it to function. You need to use good quality made springs. M2 ball ammo is M2Ball ammo no matter if made in WWII or Post War.

                      Like I said there is no M2 ball ammo up here like I said also to trimming springs is no biggy I had one IHC trigger group that was easy recock with your thumb and the rifle runs nice I had numberof rebuilt SA triggers which were really stiff to recock short stroke issues trimmed em problem solved same with new Brownells op rod springs have a Harrington ran fine put new spring in it short stroke after another trimmed to 19 inches beautiful the question is how hot do you need reload to avoid this issuer it seems I’ve tuned them to run on 48 gr if imr 4895 hey I’m glad you never had problems I don’t mind working on these guns love it cheers

                        Brownells sells Wolff springs ,is this what you are getting? Avoid them and then problems will go away.
