During the early to mid 90s I did quite a bit with the M1 Garand rifles. The Beretta BM59 rifles were popular then. I saw a few among Garand Collectors. I also saw some hack job attempted conversions of US M1 Garands. I have one which I rebuilt and chambered in 7mm-08 and still have a new .308 barrel laying around. This is the rifle I did in '95.

Someday maybe I'll get the .308 barrel on this rifle. Anyway every attempt I saw at converting a M1 Garand to use a box magazine and mimic a BM59 was a complete trainwreck. Most used M14 (M1A) type magazines. You want a box mag M1 Garand? Just buy a M1A or similar. :)
