In fact that is EXACTLY my plan! I'm being told that the folding stock from the Beretta BM59 will work. It'll be the perfect truck gun. Perfect for vacations. Thanks to every tv and movie from COMBAT! to Saving Private Ryan has made the Garand an object uniquely patriotic....almost PC! But the GI stock is too heavy and unwieldy for vehicle carry.CombatEffective said:I got shivers reading that post. Please tell me you are not going to defile a Garand by putting a folding stock on it (unless there was an oiginal military issue folding stock).
rocky said:never saw a MI grand with folding stock. Don't think the miltary ever had this config. Good luck with your conversion, I imagine the recoil may be alot more with a folding stock. Why not go with a lighter carbine for a truck gun?
