NEED INFO ON GARAND!
 
HOW CAN I MAKE my Garand 30-06 shoot 7.62x51/308 ? change barrel,operator rod what else ?

New barrel is all that is required.

Wow if those chamber adapters work that would be pretty cool.

SAFN49 September 12, 2017 22:26

Chamber adapters do not work. Get a new bbl and a spacer block.

Falfan2017 September 12, 2017 22:47

Better yet buy a garand in 308. Cmp still has some. Then you'll have two!

chamber sleeves= bad idea.Military tried it once

Rebarrel the rifle is all that is required. All other parts will work as is

Chamber sleeves....Navy tried it before. sleeve would eject with fired case. I have a 7.62 garand . all you need is abarrel and maybe a spacer.

Alternatively, keep it in the original 30-06 and learn how to reload. By using the proper powder, amount, and bullet you can shoot very accurately for a real reasonable price. Been doing it for years.

If the rifle currently shoots well as a 30-06, I would whole-heartedly agree with the above poster.

I have an M1 Garand rebarreled in 7.62x51 and it is awsome. Personal theory s that it is better because the original design was for .276 something something which would have allowed to be a 10 round clip/magazine. Criterion barrels have a good reputation. Pietro Berreta magazine filler blocks are available. There's an aluminum version on eBay with an additional wing

IMO blocks are a waste of money, they serve no good purpose

Preventing the insertion of incorrect ammunition, as well as a visual reminder of same.

That is not a good purpose ?

For 15 bucks ?

Having both a 30-06 and .308 Garand in the household now, I think the block is a good reminder. :)

Does anyone actually know what happens when you insert the longer 30.06 rd in a in a 7.62 Garand?? Absolutly nothing, Bolt wont close, hammer wont fall
Anyone know what happens when you shoot the shorter 7.62 rd in a 30.06 chamber?No devastation,no catastrophe, brass just comes out straight walled

IMO ,the blocks are a uneeded item, I dont not and never have used one.

So that's how they make some of those wildcat cartridges! "Ooops! Round in wrong gun. Call it a wildcat"

When things got too hectic at the Armory, John Cantius Garand enjoyed ice skating in his living room...being from Canada and all.
