Getting a M1 Garand for Christmas (Now with pics)

I love my mom as any son would but some days she just blows me away. I was talking to her about rounding out my collection and really the 3 rifles I want to add to the collection. The M1 Garand was number 2 and I was talking to her about one I found in Grand Junction. After telling her a little about it her response was "So you want that for Christmas?" I couldn't say anything for a few minutes.

It's a lead dipped receiver. It's most likely a CMP gun but she is in really nice shape. I am picking it up tomorrow and going through the background check and all that. I gotta admit it will be hard to sleep tonight.

Now I gotta find a good quality gin for her for Christmas

Hope mom gets something, she really wants for Christmas.

Don't forget to use proper grease when lubricating it.

The M1 is my favorite rifle to shoot. You will love it. Now go somewhere and buy a tub of synthetic wheel bearing grease. She will thank you for it.

Turns out it's a 1941 dated Springfield which was then left over after the war for the Danes.

Nice. The Dane rebuilds are top notch.

Read up on the grease, and the right ammo. Keep the M1 happy and it will keep you happy.
