    1.9M Garand found in a lake

    Check this out. Find is at 3:50 on ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOgLyTxHH1w

    The guys really don't know much about the Garand - I just focused on the visual.

        That's pretty cool. There some special history with that particular rifle right there. Thanks for sharing this!

          I found the condition of the receiver to be of interest. Lots of heavy pitting and some cracking - I guess water will do that after many years? This thing looks like a de-mil rescue dog.

            I bet the G/C is still useable.
