Are y'all recommending a field strip or a detailed strip?

Personally, I like tearing them all the way down. That way you know for sure where you are at.

I Always Detail clean and inspect/lube test fire then replace ALL springs. It may have 2K rounds on them...ya never know..its cheap insurance and kits are inexpensive. Now, with regards to the M 60 detail strip noted above.... THAT is a TOTAL PITA.

I like a detail strip every part apart strip except the barrel and receiver.

I did mine and found some red powdery stuff of some sort under the top of the handguards. Not sure it was rust or what. Barrel was fine.

The rear sight pocket is another spot crud likes to hide.

For someone who has never handled an M1 Garand before, the thought of completely stripping one is intimidating.

I shot the pig a couple of times in the service, but did not have to break it down. The Garand field strip from what I have seen looks straightforward, about the same complexity as the M16-A1 we were issued back in the day. Great info from everyone here!

I have noticed that the Garand field strip is similar to my Mini-14.

Which is similar to the M-14, which is similar to the M-1. Once you do it a few times its a breeze. The only issue I ever had was reassembly of the trigger group if you disassemble without releasing the hammer first. A hand clamp works like a charm in that case.

Thanks DetJason. Man o man, I would love to get my hands on an M-14. I have read that given the number manufactured, a majority of them were destroyed. I guess they figured since they were automatics, they would never sell them anyway. What a waste, since they could be converted to semi-auto.
