[QUOTE=spartan23;1563082]FG recvd Monday...

SA '43 Recvr.
SA 1-55 Barrel MW 2 / TE 2+ Chamber "in the white"
Mix of other parts, SA bolt, SA trigger housing, IHC hammer, HRA safety and op rod
Post war SA USGI stock w/ very faint DODAS. Original circle serif P and small uncircled P stamp (rebuild I think) on pistol grip.
Some pitting underneath back edge of recvr and a little above wood line in a couple spots.
Love the color of the stock.
Overall happy.




I ordered 5 FG. I'd be happy with one like it.

Default Field Grade arrived today

Received SA 3272*** Field Grade - October/November 44
3 SA 3 45 Barrel
Throat 4/ Muzzle 2+
35382 9 SA uncut oprod
D28290-12-SA Trigger Housing
6628287 SA Bolt

Appears to be a lot of original stuff?? This is my second M1, the other was a service grade I haven't look into yet and I'm not sure how to date all the parts, this seems like a good one to learn on.

Fair amount of pitting on underside of receiver, stock beat up pretty good - but that is what I was expecting/wanting. Well maybe not so much the pitting, but I think it's acceptable amount

One visible circle P stamp on the pistol grip, possible faint square on the left side just back of of the sights. (The spot by the butt plate that looks like a big chip of wood missing is paper stuck to the stock).

Overall, I'm pretty happy. Let me know if there's something you'd like to see a picture of.

This is my first Garand, a Special Field Grade. I ordered a FG a few weeks prior to this one but after plenty of reading on this forum and wanting a "shooter" (as well as trying to scratch the itch), I ordered this rifle to fill the gap and provide me with some fun at the range. What I ended up with is a very cool (to me) Garand! Still looking forward to my Field Grade but for now I'm very happy with what I received, and a trip to the range today reinforced the fact that it was a great purchase.

2684549 SA - March 1944
Trigger Housing D28290 12 SA - December/1942 to November/1944
Op Rod 6535382 SA - January/1946 to December/1957
Bolt D28287-12SA / S-A1<> - January/1944 to November/1944
Receiver D28291 32 A 1 3 C <> - December/1943 to May/1944

My first M1 Garand - Field Grade - Order# 634233

Serial# 1006XXX dated 11/1942
Muzzle: 2
Throat: 4+

It appears to have some original with a mix mash of parts? I couldn't see any markings on the stock, not sure if could be an original? Maybe someone can tell me more about my M1 based on my photos and see how I did? Overall, I am very happy with my M1 and can't wait to take her to the range!
