MH60, nice job! Mother of invention. Your post and reasoning is why the M3A1can do so many different things. You can do anything you need to to a Garand except change out the barrel with it. Plus, it hides in one of the buttstock tunnels so it's out of the way.

I have an M3A1 tool and I do use it - just not for bolt dis-assy/assy. It rides in the buttstock of one of the two or three Garands I take when I go to the range.

I used it for the bolt until I figured out that a spent cartridge was faster, easier and less of a pain on the hand (even with a rag around the brush). I can always come up with a spent cartridge - even if I have to make one. Then, one day, I was at the SS and saw one of the customers taking a bolt apart with one. I took a quick look at it and decided, heck, I can make one of them. So, I went home an did.

I keep an extra bolt which headspaces ok in any Garand I shoot. The buttstock tool works fine for me so far, but arthritis could change that. I don't really see myself fidgeting around small internal bolt parts in a pressure situation anyhow.

FWIW I usually have 3 spare Garand bolts at any time and I always try them all when I check headspace on a new build or acquisition. I've never seen a bolt that wouldn't headspace safely in any of them. Despite that, I would never fire one with a bolt that hadn't been checked unless it was a life-or-death situation. I believe that's why some troops were so cavalier when swapping bolts in combat conditions.

It takes me about 7 seconds to disassemble a bolt and about 10 seconds to reassemble it.

Thats wild.. This thread somehow jumped out of the How-To's and into the M1 Garand forum... Hmm

Time to bring this one from the depths of the CMP forum archives and resurrect it. lol

Seriously though, Eric, I wanted something I could copy and paste and keep in the M1 Garand folder I created to have for a reference should the need arise. And low and behold, when I searched this thread came up so I did just that-copy and pasted it, pictures and all into Microsoft word and then saved it into my documents and into the M1 Garand folder.

I thank you for providing it and I concur with the others in that you did a superb job in both explaining the How-To process and in providing pictures showing how it should look using each specific gauge and then even providing the results.

Again, THANK YOU!.
