    WWII Winchester Garand

    Picked up my first Garand yesterday. Mostly all original except for the rear sight and the butt plate. It was rearsenaled at Ogden, so I'm assuming that's when the few parts were changed out.

    Your receiver had the serial numbered stamped on Jan 31, 1942. The Viet Nam era sling is not installed the correct way

      Very interesting! Not to sound funny, the sling was on it when I picked it up and I thought that's how it was supposed to be.

        It would look a WHOLE LOT better with a nice leather M1907 sling on there instead of that nylon strap.

          Actually looks like a ARVN rifle with that sling

        I actually ordered two slings over the weekend, the M1907 and the OD green from later in the war.

          It DOES look like it's on there kind of squirrely. Front end is all kinds of wrong. Needs to re-lace it.
          The ARVN comment is appropriate too. Have a similar one on a mixmaster Carbine that makes it look like it was taken from a Montagnard unit or something.
          It's that odd coloured webbing. Not worried since it's a mixmaster and came with it.

                Well I replaced and stored the original stock due to the action being loose, but I guess that's expected with a 78 year old stock. It shoots like a dream though, 2.5 MOA @500yds, not too bad for the original barrel.
