Any goood quality wheel bearing grease is more than adequate. No breaking in , just shoot it

Try approx 8 clicks up , should get you on paper at 100 yds.
Forget about the elevation dial. Instead once you get it zeroed at 100 count how many clicks up that is and wright it down and put paper in trapdoor. That way if elevation knobs ever come loose you only have to look at paper , count clicks up and you are zeroed again

Treat it like you would any new rifle. Clean it and lubricate it before heading to the range. I have a document on grease points that I'll send you. It may be the same one that Orlando pointed you to, but I'm not sure. You can also follow the basic rule of thumb: if it rotates, oil it; if it slides, grease it.
Congrats, you are now officially afflicted with "Garanditis"!! There is no cure, but buying another Garand has been known to temporarily reduce the symptoms!!

Well, here she is! Unfortunately, they don't have any more spam cans with the bandoliers, which I was counting on to give me more clips. Instead they just gave me one! But hey, at least I don't have to single load, right?

Default Nice M1

I bought one myself a few weeks ago, thanks for the grease info, waiting to finish the stock before taking it to the range.Have you decided on how you are going to finish yours?

Well, I am probably going to run in over with some mineral spirits and boiled linseed oil. I may not finish it before I take it to the range...I'm a bit anxious. We'll see.

What are you leaning towards for finishing?

Congratulations on your (literally) new M1 Garand! It's a beauty! Bet you can't keep from picking it up.

You did okay for yourself. Hope you enjoyed the visit to the SS. If you've never shoot a Garand before, you're in for a treat - Guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
