    That is how I finally got the trigger guard closed. One good smack with a rubber hammer.

    I did yes and he explained how to remove a little wood. Before I did that I was reading on the CMP forum again. They all said do not remove wood it needed a good smack with a rubber hammer. I was afraid I would break something but it worked. I read the wood needs time to compress and it shouldn't be as hard again. I will leave it alone for a couple months then strip and clean before shooting it.

    When i talked to him on the phone he was awesome. I would like to meet him one day. A friend sent his M1 to Orion 7 and had it all checked out pins and springs replaced. Anyone here ever use them?

    Itís really not that hard to fit the stock. The problem with some of the new stocks is that they can be a little thick in places. I cleaned one up that was almost a quarter of an inch thicker on one side at the front of the stock.

    I sent this rifle to Garand Guy last year to have it completely redone and a new barrel.

    That's a beautiful rifle Candyman they did a damn good job on it. I really want to pick up a Garand but I try not to buy guns I know I won't shoot. It would be nice just to have a piece of American history though.
