    My M1D

    I always wanted a DCM Lottery M1D but never pulled the trigger on one when they came around , had a hard time justifying the $$$ I picked this one up a couple years ago, not documented but for the price I'm OK with it. It appears to be right as rain but without papers will never know

            No I havent, sad isnt it? I used to go to the range atleast once a week, now with my new job I dont have time and its been over a yearpk1>
            M1D's really arent all that accurate, no more than a standard Garand. I will post a report when I get her out

                    Another D, this one came back Via Israel. The trick with the Ds is simple. most basically shoot like an M1. *IF* you can find one that was "matchbook" Bedded like a Type 1. they shoot fairly nicely



                    And a C, part of a Garand project we've been doing off and one for the past 2 years.

                          The few L&S M84 scopes I have seen had the tube part number on the right side of the tube, forward of the data plate. Maybe they all did not have this marking (?) Picture shows L&S top and LOF bottom, M84 scopes.

                            There is nothing stamped on the side of mine. I know very little about M1d's and scopes etc.,I'm all ears

                              When they appear, the part number 7667424 are marked as follows: Libby Owen Ford.. bottom of adjustment turret. Leupold - Stevens.. right side of tube, forward of data plate. It has not been determined which ranges of s/ns, if any, were so marked.
