    She'll more then likely be a safe queen. I'll take her out here when it warms up a bit... but it's mostly a collectors item

    [QUOTE=Pro2A;1503465]And man is she a beauty I picked her up from a guy on PAFOA. It is a field grade CMP Garand with matching parts... I made a thread earlier with some questions about an M1... now here are my photos as I know some of you wanted to see. She is a real gem I can't wait to get her out and stretch her legs. Enjoy the photos!



    Of course our cat the "Customs Agent" had to come inspect it as he does with EVERYTHING I bring home

    Just seeing one of those M1s almost makes me want to solute it for all it's done for our country and for our world.

    A true piece of history.

    That's a nice one. Reminds me of my Dad. He was a Paris Island Marine. There's a Garand, an '03 and a M1 carbine in his safe. Lots of memories there.

    I know the feeling. Now we have two in the family Mine and my FIL's... I may soon end up with both of them since he told me once he kicks the bucket, it's mine.

    I love the history behind this rifle and only wish it could talk. Mine was made in January of '45. There is a good possibility it saw some combat in WW2 and most likely in Korea.
