Well here it is!!! All done!!!
Springfield M1 Garand.
At first glance he looks pretty darn rough, but actually the metal on this rifle is very good!! It appears it has never been re-finished so the the markings are very sharp and there are no pits anywhere except on the plate on the trigger that is on the inside and will never be seen. I plan on doing this restoration myself. I think it will be relatively straightforward. The plan is to rebarrel this guy with a Criterion 308 barrel, add NM sights, and an aftermarket stock.
