Had it cut down a bit, and threaded for AR-15 hiders.....

Rummaged my parts bins and i came up with this one, its growing on me and looks like it belongs...

Johnny said it was one of the more Pleasant woos to work on .....right Johnny ? ;)


Thanks, Joezeta

How much was cut down? I'm trying to figure out how much to take off as well.

With the limited supply of preban woos, I condier altering one akin to "sporterizing" a nice pristine Garand. How long have you had those two woos for?

Nobody is more of a Purist then me........

Anyone that has seen my collection can attest to that.....
All original correct preban era guns .

That Being said......its my Shooter.....its not going anywhere.....and even if it does, i wont have a problem getting the 1K i have into it.......

Comparing a Woo to a Pristine WW2 era Garand is Silly.....
You are overeacting on that comparison.

If you have a woo and what your saying is actually true, then the value of yours just went up ;)

Forgive me, but what is the advantage of this? How much did you save maybe 2" off of the original length?

Not at all the same really..
It's a WOO and while it does have value the WOO has nowhere near the historical relevance of the M1 Garand..

It just makes for a better handling rifle.. You loose pretty much nothing but unneeded barrel length..
