    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

    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?
