One good thing about incorrect data is that you can recognize the restoration by certain parts - like the single bevel follower arm (Winchester) that was used in the early gas port restorations.

You still have to give Scott Duff credit for publishing the first complete book covering parts and data sheets. This book was never updated.

Don't expect detailed information on parts in Canfield's book but has excellent serial number data

Like most other reference books it's not perfect (my anti-flaming disclaimer) but used in conjunction with other sources Harrison's field guide book "Collecting The Garand II" can be useful in identifying parts.

I know nothing is perfect, but something like this make me wonder about "info came from documented original rifles"

Any of these books need to be taken with a grain of salt, but the end of production 6 mil rifles have been known to have a few odd parts that don't fit in the normal timeline. Theory being that they were using what parts they could source to complete the last ones.

In the meantime, I emailed the publisher, North Cape Publications. They said they are reprinting a new revised and expanded edition of the M1 Garand book, and hope to have it available in the coming months. Great news!
