Before


Here is the after:



Now, that is NOT the same stock. I had a stock that had never been finished, and that is what I used. I used the handguards that came with the gun, however. I think it turned out pretty decent

Don't you just love Garands? I mean those are some classy rifles!

Nice job on cleaning that old girl up. You gonna name her?

Thanks guys. I have only shot 40 rounds though her so far, offhand, as I have been working everynight for 10 days, 12 hours a night, and have not had the opportunity to fire her from a bench. I am hoping to be off in a couple of nights and really see what she can do!

You treat that lady proper, and she will amaze you. I drive guys crazy at the silhouette range knocking rams down open sights at 300 yards with mine!

I do not know how much you know about Garands, but if you have any questions about them, just ask. I like Garands, I like to look at them, I like talking about them, I expecially like shooting them.

I swear I saw it in the AR15.com forums in the C&R section, am I thinking right??

I gotta say, that thing looks amazing with the new stock. Take care of that little piece of history.

Once you work with a Garand, you will never really be happy with anything else. I have two. One like the one pictured. I dropped another into a synthetic stock to lighten it up. That is one kick ass truck gun.
