    That is a beautiful rifle you have there. She has lots of character and can't say I would dare change out the stocks.

    I would love to have one myself.

    This is a great piece of history that won WWI for us.

    Keep it and fire it. It will not let you down.
    It is not ugly, as some have mentioned, it has character.

    Please to not try to varnish the stock or "improve' the appearance in any way.
    If you do, It will loose all of its value. It is beautiful just the way it is.

    um...if you're going to try replacing the stock, unless you plan to keep it for posterity (which I hope), PM me, I'll take it.

    That gun is beautiful now, replace the stocks and it will be just another rifle. The dings and carvings are what make that rifle amazing.

    You guys do realise I was being tongue in cheek by calling her ugly right?

    The only reason I'm considering changing the wood is because the reciever moves (back and forth) in the stock while locked in. I'm not expert but I'm pretty sure that's gonna blow open my groups.

    Her name is Emily by the way . . .

    I really like the M-1, there is no telling where it saw action.

    It would be a grate thing to know the history of this nice firearm.

    I see no ugly, just character.

    Range Report

    After four hours of searching for a place to shoot, we went to a friends farm and set up in a gully. Went through nine clips and had a few malfunctions, but I already know the cause and am working on finding a fix. If you know how to adjust the timing of the clip release on an M1 let me know as it's the problem.

    Other than that, I had a BLAST (pun intended) !

    We should all look as good at 66, after what she's been through.

    Actually, the safety on the Ruger is the same kind as on the Garand.
