    My First Garand

    Bout damn time I joined this club. I've been all about m14/m1a's for the last few years and I finally bit the bullet. Snagged myself a post war SA Garand, CMP Service Grade. Didn't get it for the price I would've hoped but seems like there's a premium on Garands these days. All SA short of the windage knob and elevation pinion, and just finished up the stock refinish.

          Looks like you really scored and proper USGI wood to boot from the pics. Just so you know, it might not even be correct to have an SA windage or SA elevation pinion on it depending on production date. Only early post war did. DRC on both would be common or it could be several others too, again, depending on production date...early or late.

          Here is a list: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0xvtz7llsk...Knobs.pdf?dl=0

            the more you know!

            The wood was in decent condition initially, had to steam out some dents and give it the Teak Oil treatment.

            It has an H&R elevation pinion and IHC-DRC windage knob.

                Thanks! I can't wait to get some range time with it. On that note, besides ball ammo are there any commercial rounds anyone would recommend? I've installed a Schuster plug and wondering what I can get good accuracy out of. Thanks!

                  Hornady, Privi Partisan, Creedmoor, Federal all make commercial M1 specific ammo. With the adjustable plug you can pretty much shoot any commercial ammo up to 180gr. Avoid Hornady Superperformance ammo. just becaware, with the adjustable plug each ammo change will require a new calibration of the plug which is a PITA and a waste of ammo.
