    M1 Garand

    why this receiver has no second attachment

    Looks like it was modified to use a box magazine maybe.
    The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
    The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.

      Receiver has been modified to take a box mag. Most likely an M14 mag. Is is not a EM62 OR BM59 conversion as the front legs are not removed on those conversions. It does not utilize on M14 trigger housing or trigger guard. It could be an early Ernie Balance conversion before he started production of the M1A. Can you post photos of the rest of the rifle. Any markings on receiver?

        I wonder if this serial falls into the range where they were experimenting to put a removeable box mag on before the M14 development really got going. There were several prototypes if memory serves. Forget how they were marked or if a specific serial range was used or if they just grabbed a few that were handy.

        BTW: This might belong in a different area than M1 Carbine. Just saying.

          During WWII Remington worked on a project to convert M1 Garands to take BAR mags. gryglas pm me additional photos. Apparently the barreled action with op rod are in Europe. He does not have the complete rifle. Barrel is a 1960s era SA.
