    New Old Guy...

    Greetings from what used to be the great state of Colorado! Watched a John C Garand match at the Colorado Rifle Club and the bug bit me. I have just sent in an order for my first M1 Garand. Wishing you all the best!

              Here is a few pics. I need to strip it down, grease and oil it up and do something with the stock.

                I see you got one of CMP's stock on the rifle. Orlando has a good write-up on things to look for on new CMP stocks that may cause issues.

                    The rifle I got is an RM1Special. It comes with that new stock. Im going to take it apart, grease and lube it up, then shoot it. I will start the stock work after I put a couple hundred rounds thru it.

                        Life got in the way then the snow storms settled in. Haven't put a round thru it yet. Last storm hopefully for a while coming thru tonight.
