    M1 Garand

    I bought a new stock for my M1 Garand from CMP probably 5 or 6 years ago. The stock is not a one size fits all and needs to be customized for the rifle to fit properly. I am not brave enough to do it myself. Any recommendations for a gunsmith that does this type of work? I'd love to start shooting my M1 again. It's been a long time just sitting there.

    Have you tried? I bought one around the same time for my woodless Dane and it was a press fit.
