    SHM Rebuild

    Here is a SHM rebuild. The stock came off a north store CMP FG and I had this SA barreled receiver (S-A-11-46 barrel) that seemed to be a likely match for it as the stock looked like it had been there and done that too. I like to put these rebuilds together using parts that have similar wear and color. If you have enough hang guards you sometimes get lucky matching those up also.

        Wow, a 4 digit! I'm not much into rebuilds, but I'd own one like that.

          Wow, I truly like the look of this rifle. It has a very nice overall finish to it. It has that I have been there and done that but in a good way. I will upload pictures Of my first Garand tomorrow. It too has a SHM stock. A 2-45 barrel and SN 37056. All metal including the stock metal matches very nicely. However I am a idiot and swapped some parts before I learned of rebuilds and their history. I got lucky though and the bolt and op rod I swapped match really well too. Mine isn't quite as nice as yours but she sure is still a M1. Which in my book is the best rifle out there.

                  A 1945/46/47 rebuild is a fun project find an shm stock, a '46 or 47 uncromed barrel, a set of type 3 lock bars, a low #d receiver with no prior re-arsenal marks on the lower legs. At this point open your parts bin to seek 1945 or earlier parts and color match.have some fun and use things like a cross cut gas cylinder,a grooved lowerband or hand guard clip. Bruce canfield's latest book has a great section on post war rebuilds or i have a great article of canfield's from the dec,2002 nra american rifleman magazine. I have shm stocks,'46/'47 barrels,lockb sights and low numbered receivers .garandfather ton byrne

                    I have been told that there are two kinds of SA SHM stocks:

                    1) SA SHM stamp applied to rebuild stocks

                    2) SA SHM cartouche on new production stocks (very short period postwar)
