Welcome to the forum Vinny! Whereabouts are you located?
And congrats on your first Garand...better late than never. And you have quite a lineage of history between it and your M1A.
As mentioned, look forward to pics of your Special FG...curious to see how they look.

And here is a sticky on how to post pics...

Any issues or questions about posting them, let me know.

Welcome and congrats,
Rob
