    RRAD

    The 1960's rebuilds are some of my favorite Garands. This one has a 1963 barrel MW .5 TW 1 , looks to be fired very little if any after rebuild.
    Funny thing years ago no one was interested in them and you could buy them faily cheap, now they have become popular and prices have gone up

      This is a super nice example. Look how clean it is. Thanks for sharing, Bill.

        The post WW2 SA SPG rebuld cartouche, note the "fat' letters in this cartouche. Some recent articles concerning
        post war rebuilds do ignore this stamp (Canfield has information on it) and even the cartouche counterfeiter from
        Stone Mountain has one available ! Also found on a few M1 carbine stocks too. Roger can you post your photos
        of your SA SPG post war rebuild ?

            Look in Canfield's new book "The M1 Garand Rifle" page 453. Charles Redfield also wrote some articles with line drawings
            of both WW2 and post war rebuild stamps too for Billy Pyles newsletter "The Garand Stand Report" The postwar SA SPG
            rebuild stamp is also included

              Awesome, thanks Robert. I have Canfield's book, so I'll take a look. I need to start getting the Garand Stand Report. Mr. Pyle and I have been in touch, so we'll get that ball rolling ASAP.

                Another rebuild, this Winchester WRA WB stock was converted to use the trap door butt plate. The receiver is a
                Winchester 122K and the barrel S-A 8-44. Difficult to pin point the time period of these AOR and AAP stamps

                  You will love the Garand Stand Report, IMO the best publication out there

                    What is the Garand stand report?

                    Bill that is a nice looking rifle. I really like the stock! Is that a birch replacement?
                    I will be getting my first confirmed 60's rebuild Thursday. It's a 10-65 LEAD with SA 47 barrel and walnut stock with LEAD triangle. I'll be sure to post up some pictures.

                    Best regards,
                    Casey

                      The Garand Stnad Report is a publication that IMO is the best read out there. You should look into it
                      Yes its a Birch RRAD replacement stock

                        Here is mine. Looks pretty clean. Guy stamping them looked a little timid and had to redo it. Maybe a guy in training.

                          Double stamp RRAD.
                          Odd thing is I have been receiving photos of quite a few RRAD leg etches that were double etched (normally the same etching just done twice).
                          I wonder if there is a connection to this double effort?

                        My '' one per lifetime '' from the DCM (3.7 SA) is a 7-66 RRAD rebuild with a 12-65 SA barrel. It's my best shooter.
