Here is the info on the Receiver. If you blow it up, and look carefully, it says Springfield Armory. I had to use the picture to read it as even with reading glasses, I could not see it.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Looks like April of 43, pretty good chance that she saw some action. Very cool, now get out there and break her in!

Missouri Conservation Dept. has a brand new range nearby. They have Thursday evening hours during the summer. I might head there tomorrow after work.

Have fun and be safe brother. Being a new barrel I'd probably take it easy on her and give it a proper break in, so don't forget cleaning supplies and a rod or bore snake.

Gotta get them too. Anybody ever deal with Midway? They are right down the road, near my daughter's house (well, same town anyway). Good excuse for a Road Trip. Weather is supposed to suck this weekend. I rode in the rain enough last weekend at Eureka Springs.


200 Rounds, ready to lock and load...

Midway is a great place to shop; I prefer them over Brownell's. I'd go broke if they were right down the road...

This is so true! Shipping is a little slow but prices are fair and they have so much inventory.

A lot of people (who never subscribed to Guns & Ammo ) tend to use the designation 7.62 NATO and .308 Winchester intermittently. The NATO round is 7.62x51 MM whereas the .308 Win is 7.8x51.18 MM. By the way the 7.62 NATO has a shorter casing (51 MM) than the .30-06 (63 MM).

The USN had two versions of the 7.62 NATO firing M1 Garand. One had the chamber bushing as mentioned, with the new nomenclature: Mk2 Mod 0 (Mark 2 Model 0). The USN granted contracts to two firms doing these conversions, the AMF (American Machine and Foundry) and H&R (Harrington & Richardsons Firearms Co.).
The other had the old .30-06 barrels removed and replaced with new 7.62 mm barrels. This conversion was much better although more expensive. The M1 rifles with the 7.62 NATO barrels were designated Mk2 Mod 1. Springfield Armory delivered the barrels chambered for the 7.62x51MM NATO. In addition every Mk2 rifle had an enlarged gas port, and a chamber insert to prevent loading of the .30-06 round.

In Norway during the 1950s and 1060s the Armed Forces received close to 70.000 M1 rifles from the US Army. These were being replaced by the H&K G3s in 1966-1967. Today the only unit in the Army that retained the M1 is the HM King's Guards Band & Drill Team.
