    Trouble with clip

    I am new to the M1 Garand. I just bought a 1943 Garand. Sometimes after two or three shots the clip will pop up. What am I doing wrong?

    The first question that comes to mind is, what kind of clips are you using? If not USGI, or USGI spec, the clips are probably at fault, and not the rifle. A quick-check is to take out the clip latch spring, slightly stretch it, reassemble, and see if the problem still exists or goes away. If the latter, replace the spring. If the problem still persists, the likely culprit is the latch itself.

      Jon is exactly right. Stretching the spring is purely a means of seeing if it's the problem. It's not a fix. If that works you need to replace it.
