    And now to play the waiting game

    Earlier in the week, I sent an order form for a Service Grade HRA M1 to the CMP, along with an order for some clips and several hundred rounds of M2 Ball. I have been informed by some guys at the CMP forum that there is about a four month wait right now.

    What are some "must have" Garand accessories and maintainence gear to acquire over the next few months?

    Sling, period. It isn't a ray gun like an M4 or AR.

    Time at the gym you need a good work out carrying around a 13 plus pound rifle and enough 30.06 to feed it.
    Enjoy.
    Do some research on the serial number some years better than others

The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    A sling is definitely a must, and probably the only thing I'll strap on the rifle, other than maybe a bayonet.

    What about maintainence gear? I've heard a few people say the M1 needs grease?
