    Try Bulk Ammo or Brownell's. Our Clubb just got some 30-06 ammo from Bulk Ammo back 3 weeks ago.

    If I ever get a Garand M1, I will have settle for a connection with 1947 with a barrel of that date.

    On the other hand, I could easily settle for one manufactured on June 6, 1944, May 8, 1945, or September 2, 1945.

    How about this slogan - a Garand in every home in America? The founding Fathers would have said "at least".

    I purchased my M1 Garand from the DCM back in 1983 when I was shooting in our club's military matches. It numbers to March 1945.
    What Bruce said about the Schuster Plug. The Garand was designed to operate on a certain pressure curve for the operating rod..bend
    one and it can get quite expensive. Ammo was dirt cheap back in the day and it wasn't uncommon for a couple of guys to put their money
    together and order as much as they could afford. I still have more than I'll ever need so I never had to reload for my M1. I have a soft spot
    in my heart for the old military arms and the history that comes with them. I had some good pics but lost them when my computer crashed
    several years ago. I'll post what I have which is me shooting mine and the M1 field stripped for cleaning. Stay safe my friends Dick

    I'm curious, what year and manufacturer is stamped on the barrel of your Garand?
    Mine was rebarreled at CMP, and is new production dated 2011

    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!

    Mine is 11/43. Mine shows a lot of use, I would love to know the story behind it but has been lost now, the chain is broken. It has not been fired in 30 plus years or more. I would like to think it helped win the war, it sure looks like it.

    I love these things. Very happy for those that found mint ones.

    This one originally had a grenade launcher sight mounted on it, and is loose enough to have seen a fair amount of service in WW-II and after.
