[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.

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!

Our first M1. Supplied by the U.S. Government back in February of '66.

I finally got around to acquiring a correct stock for my HRA Service Grade. Purchased this nice 1/2" DAS stock from forum member Match223. I think I could entertain relatives on that huge back porch!

Default The Official M1 picture thread..

Received my order yesterday and am glad that I ordered two and I think I got a lucky draw on the older of the two.

Serial #: 2528345 - Jan 44 appears to be in the better condition of the two. Nice and clean, some sratch and dent, but i'm good with that. Muzzle 1 Throat 4. HRA Bolt, IHC on the plug. Crack in the underside hand guard doesn't appear to go all the way through. Less wear on the metal parts than the other. At first I didn't think it had any cartouches, but after a closer review it's very faint. Stock cartouche appears to be '42 to '43. Large ordinance wheel extremely faint. (Blew up the magnifying glass photo) Didn't see a circle P or any other stamps in the wood.

Serial #: 3739137 - May 45 seems to be a bit dirty (cosmoline maybe?), has rack numbers on it and has greater wear on the barrel, etc. Muzzle 3 Throat 4. Circled P stamped on the pistol grip. Haven't had a chance to take it apart yet.

Here is a link to the photos. The disassembled photos are of the '44. Any observations are welcome, as I have no idea what's what just yet.
