Default Greasing the Monster

Grease, please forgive my for bringing this up. ( Strike one) I really enjoyed the posts about shooting modern ammo in the Garand.
I am a Carbine, ( I know, Strike two.) My rule for a M1 carbine was to grease everything shinny and oil the rest.
Over the years I have read posts about greasing a Garand. I even bought Jim T's book last month. He talks a lot about grease and a Garand but no pictures. I need pictures.
Last week Someone posted Garand Gear.com and talked about grease.
I went to their site and printed out the "Minimum" and "Additional" Areas to grease.
It looks like everything gets grease where two pieces of metal touch or rub.
Over the years, I have shot Garands that were dry with maybe a little oil.
No more and I want to thank every one who takes the time to keep us all straight.

In 20 years I have never had a malfunction, even with a cracked gas lock screw poppet. Guess I’m lucky. I use Superlube in a tube because it’s clear. Any grease you have in a few spots and your good to go. Really pretty much the same places as a carbine.

I believe there's an old saying, if it rubs apply grease, if it rolls apply oil. Something to that affect lol. I think you are good. Rich

Google it and you should find some Sites with pictures and even some You Tube videos on Garand lubrication. I found at least 5 videos and half a dozen places with pictures and descriptions.

This is one of the better ones: http://www.garandgear.com/m1-garand-grease

Beware of the Brownell's vides. They're not bad until they get to the trigger group lubrication and they tell you to put grease in inappropriate areas.
