I have two Garands but I have no clue what the deal is with your's. I'd make a post in the CMP forums; I'm sure someone will help pretty quick. Maybe a bad enbloc?

Is your gun or did you borrow it?

I would field strip it, clean, and properly lube the action. They try some milspec rounds.

Any one have a spare recoil spring that I can try out or just buy. Also what about the adjustable gas plug for shooting modern ammo?

You can get recoil springs on the CMP eStore (100% guarantee that it works), eBay, Numrichs, or gunbroker.

I bet the bullet guide and/or follower are binding. Be sure to lube everything correctly. When you fire the first round is the rifle short stroking and not picking up the next round. Do you have more than one clip to try.

I would go to M14forum.com and join. Yes it is an m14 forum but your gun is the original and there are tons of garand supergurus on that site.

Trust me they will help you and you will get it fixed. Lots of those guys are diehard garand guys!!!

Ok guys I've checked n double checked everything so I guess I'll start replacing parts. I'll start with the springs. Are they hard to change out?
