I just picked up my new Springfield M1 Garand today. I was very impressed with its handling. Recoil is surprisingly low. But there were a few problems too. 1.) About every other clip would eject about halfway through, leaving quite a jam. Anyone ever have this happen or know how to prevent it? 2.) The rifle would not feed the first shot without assistance, except I think once. Is this normal? Or are the clips just too tight or need lubrication? 3.) When my friend tried it, it would pass over the cartridges and feed nothing. When manually charged, it usually worked. Tight clip again? I'm still trying to find the best ammo to use as well. I know M2 is good, and AP as well. Anything else that competes with reloading? And what is the weight of the AP bullets?
