I wonder if that was signed off on by the infamous Snoopy from "the Stamps"

Hey AR15 guy, there is no gas tube on an M1 or M14 clone.

I’d really have to see small parts to be happy there are no reproduction parts (lots of repop gas cylinder lock screws around”.

I read the 'certificate' several times. It reads: "...is an original U.S. Govt Issue M1 Garand with specifications as detailed on the accompanying data sheet". "All parts listed have been inspected and verified and the firearm tested by CGS who hereby certifies it's authenticity."

Besides the several errors in grammar and punctuation, the 'certificate' indicates to me that: 1.) The rifle is (was) a USGI, and not a lend-lease, foreign-built, or aftermarket Garand. 2.) The information about the rifle's components is on a data sheet that comes with the rifle. 3.) CGS 'tested' the rifle, and inspected and verified that all of the rifle's components are authentic.

I knew nothing about the existance of CGS until this thread. Looking at their website, I can see that they seem to have an extremely limited inventory of M1 parts. Their last gun show info is from 2013. Their website has no details on 'certification' for M1 rifles.

I just checked my Garand collection, and determined that all are authentic.

I found CGS too, and to be honest, I am doubtful that the entity certififying this M1 has anything to do with the CGS we found on the web, and is probably just a name made up by the seller, with the coincidence that this CGS we found has the same name.

My favorite part of the certificate is the completely illegible signature and no printed version of the name.
