Also watch out for DIRT in the rifle, the recent ex Turk rifles have a lot of it in them.

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.

Make sure you set the mood correctly with candles and maybe a bottle of wine, before meeting your new lady (open to individual preferences of course) . Treat her well after opening that beautiful green or maybe black case and setting her free.

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.

Most of all, be careful and take your time when performing the strip function!

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.
