Had the digital camera out today with some rifles and thought I share.

First is a Springfield M1 Garand I received about 13 year ago, from DCM.
Second is an IAI M1 Carbine, very nice for a parts gun.

I've been fortunate, no problems with the Garand, and only a loose piston nut on the carbine.

Cheers.

Dynomike,

TY. Yes, a left hand person in a right handed world:)

Weather-96 degrees+ 90% humidity.

I've had that pouch for the longest time. Can't remember where I got, and didn't even realize it fit over the stock until a few months ago. It looks cool, but bothers me when shooting.:sad:

Son, did that Garand come that purty or did you refinish it? That grain pattern is nice.

TY. The M1 Garand hasn't been refinished, that's the way it arrived.

Rotor,

To each their own. Your opinion is duly noted:)
