I have read that the correct gages for M1 Garands are: 1.940 GO, 1.946 NO-GO, 1.950 FIELD.

When I bought a set of FORSTER gages, they arrived marked as follows:
GO = 2.0487
NO-GO = 2.0547

Can any of you M1 Garand wizards tell me what is REALLY correct?

Unless installing a new barrel on your Garand the two gauges you need are no go and a field. If it closes on a no go gauge its still safe to shoot but need to moniter the wear with the field gauge. If the bolt ever closes on a field gauge you need a longer bolt. Honestly all that is needed if a ffield gauge, thats what I use. The go gauge is only needed when installing a new barrel
