    Newbie here, both to the Forum and to M1's, too.

    I recently received my CMP Service Grade M1, with new CMP stock, and thought I would do a field strip, just to familiarize myself with the process. After all, reading about it only goes so far. I immediately had difficulty with opening the trigger guard. I did a search of this forum and found this recent post https://www.m1garandforum.com/forum/...uard#post23993 with a response by Orlando (moderator). The included photo was very effective in reinforcing his advice! Although the post was about closing the trigger guard, somehow I had a feeling the advice for opening would be the same.

    I tried again, this time putting considerably more "Oomph!" into the effort. The trigger guard opened and the assembly came out, just as advertised. When it was time to re-assemble, I ran into the same stubbornness described in the above-mentioned post. Again, simply adding a good bit of extra "Oomph!" did the trick.

    So, thanks, all, for the help you have already provided. I look forward to learning more about this wonderful piece of American history, and the M1 Garand Forum looks like a great resource!

          Welcome! A snug trigger guard is better than a loose one. Enjoy the rifle.
