Hey guys. I’m new here to the forum. I recently restored a sporterized K98 and ended up making a new friend and trading the k98 with boot for a very nice M1. Serial number is in the 5.8m which I found out is around 56? Can you all tell me what to look for. I’ve never owned an M1 but I instantly fell in love with how it handled/shot. Here’s some pictures

You did very well for your first M1. I have a 5 mil as well and learned that the 5 and 6 mil rifles are NM so I'm told . It looks like you have USGI wood (Walnut) with a DAS and that's as good as gold. At the moment USGI wood is in big demand and you may have seen the last of it. I really can't tell you much more about it. There are plenty of knowledgeable people on this forum that can give better input with better pictures

Hey thanks for the reply. This may be a blonde moment but what is NM? I really wanted to get one in the 40’s range as I love WWII memorabilia. But the M1 has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. Now that i have one I know why. The stock on this one is beautiful in my opinion. I had a choice of 2 M1s when I traded for this. The other one looked brand new. Stock, reciever, barrel and all. But this one felt right when I shot it and I like the look better. I stripped the gun a few minutes ago and found it’s all SA but the hammer and trigger guard. They are W.R.A

NM stands for National Match you most likely have a mix master consisting of SA and WRA parts. Maybe this link will help.

Yeah it’s definitely a mix master. No number matches unfortunately. But from what I’ve read M1s rarely match? I’ve dealt more with German k98s where you have several mixed rifles and still some complete number matching rifles. I actually traded a number matching k98 for the M1

Got my FG in today. It only took 10 days. It has an August 1943 receiver.

My FG is a Hackberry mixmaster, but it looks like it will do just fine. I am using the SG to compare and contrast. There is a little rust and pitting on the FG but it does not look like it will be a problem. It was rebarreled with a 1952 barrel and it has a late style trigger guard.

Can anybody explain the gas cylinder lock?

I was just gonna say, the wood looks amazing but then I realized that some people want new and some people would rather have the GI wood... Me, I have one of each and I still can't decide which one I like best...

The new CMP walnut is very attractive and the fit to the receiver is nice and tight. In my sample there is no binding anywhere so no adjustments were necessary for proper function. It feels a little thick in some places but that can be remedied if desired in the future.

Default My Garand arrived.

Very very pleased with this beautiful HRA. The Walnut is absolutely beautiful. Pictures don't quite do it justice. A couple coats of oil is all that's needed for me on this one.

Added a note for please no pitting and they definitely came through. For everyone waiting on theirs, just hang in there. It will be well worth it. This one is a keeper. Had to jump through more hoops than any gun I have ever purchased, buy sight unseen and luck of the draw, and also waited longer than I have ever had to wait for a gun. Now I have a real US Military Surplus M1 Garand with it's original finish and a beautiful one at that. It was all worth it. Sure to be an heirloom.
This one's not for sale and I won't be letting just any joe shmo touch it either, let alone shoot it.
