  • Help identify these parts

    I finished a detailed take down and cleaning of my fathers M1 Garand and saw these 2 parts sitting on my bench. Can anyone identify if these are from this rifle and where they would go? Days earlier I cleaned his K98 Mauser and M1894 Winchester but didn't notice them until I was done with the M1.

    Not sure on the spring. The spring may belong in the 94 Winchester. The other piece is a spacer block for M1 Garands chambered in 7.62 Nato (.308). It fits inside the clip well up against the bullet guide.

      Thanks so much, RDS. That might explain why none of the schematics I looked at showed this piece. You're a life saver!

      Is the function of the "spacer block" to prevent 30-06 rounds from being loaded?

      Now I have to pour over some schematics for the Winchester... sigh

        Yes the spacer prevents a clip of 30-06 from being loaded. The spacer goes in first then the bullet guide. The bullet guide holds it in place.
