All the posts of late about Garands reminded me to post some pics of my latest.

I picked up this Garand at the South Store on D-Day. Its a Springfield field grade. Muzzle erosion 1, throat erosion 3. It came in a nice HRA 3/8" DoD stamped stock but I traded it for the nice birch stock its in now. I love the look of the birch. I don't really know how its a field grade as its really nice, though it does have some finish wear on the exposed barrel and gas cylinder.

You bet it shoots. Those guns practically won the war for us. Surprised many a dead German soldier.

Good looking Garand. I had an all original HRA with a birch stock set from the CMP that i still regret letting go.

Finally shot her yesterday. Nice tight group at 50 yards. The trigger is pretty rough, but that can be fixed. My HRA's trigger is a crisp 4.5 lbs. Once I get this one there she'll be a tack driver!
