    Well went to take photo's for a friend and sell his rifle. Darn it he let me hold it to long and after I took about 50 photo's of all the finer points we worked a deal and she came home with me. Heres a few pics of my new favorite Garand with a T.E. of .5 Yes that is less than a one. It is absolutely mint with some handling wear and if 500 rounds went through it I would be amazed. What is it folks? Rick B

  2. D A N M ! ! ! ! Rick that is a GREAT find. Does your wife know you're having an affair? And to bring her home, right under her nose. How much? $500, plus building a deck or what? Any history? There's no wear in the op rod channel. Again, Great find! That beats my 03-A3 Smith Corona garage sale find, in unissed condition purchased from the NRA in 1960 still in cosmoline and in the original shipping box.

    Details in a bit but look at this I was given this a few years ago. I know the original owner and he bought it from the NRA/DCM around 1914. It is 100% original. I have gotten lucky a few times. RIck B

  4. Great rifling picture. Do you use a SLR 35mm camera or a digital camera? One day i'll figure how to post pictures or I'll ask the 9 year old neighbor kid.
    When people ask me how many guns I have, I reply,"more than one".

    I use a Olympus Digital D360-L It is great for close ups but can get fuzzy when you take far away photo's. It has worked great for the 3 years I have had it. Get that camera going and share those pic's. Thats the best part of having these. Rick B

    Hey Rick, is that M1 a Gas trap? Or is the sn too high?

    Just wondering.

    Rick, The queen called and said she wants her garand back...... Nice London proof marks.
    A guard at the tower of London set it down for a moment for a spot of tea and it was gone.... **** Yanks!
    Does it have the red homeguard stripe? I am very jealous!
    Nice find.
     
  8. Great rifle, Rick. I have a #335652 - unfortunately, the only "original" part is the receiver. I thought maybe the barrel date was a little late for your receiver, but I guess it's within the '0-3 month' rule.

    Any Broad Arrows on your rifle?

    SteveG - no, not a Gas Trap - the last Gas Traps had s/n @ 50XXX.

    I positive drool over your 1903 - still my favorite rifle..

    Acording to Scott Duff's book it is correct for November of 1941. What bok did you look at for the date/barrel configuration? The 03 is way better looking in person. The camera flash does it no justice anbd in person it looks like a fine grade hunting rifle with very tight seems and lines. Now if I couild just find tht Model Shop Garand hahahahahah. Thanks,,Rick B

    That is a early Flush nut and very hard to find one and when you do there getting up in price. I have heard of a few selling reproduction ones and there cheper but still around $75.00 for the pinion and nut. The checkered Elevation knob is another hot item along with a Windage knob. This time period had one of each if you noticed in the photo. Rick B

    Rick Slater, Thanks, I couldn't rember the sn range for the gas traps. I guess the angle and my eyes were playing tricks on me again.
