    My 1943 M1 Garand

    Many of you here know the back story, after a few trips to Orion, the rifle is almost completely made from 1943 parts. The rear site and the stock are all that i need to complete the rifle.

      Nothing, I just want a 1943 stock to go with everything else.

                  You may have some luck finding the remaining parts on the garand forum. I know there is one somewhere.
                  Nice build and definitely make it all 1943 authentic. Great piece of history.

                    Very nice. Put a WTB ad in the Parts Wanted Marketplace on this forum:

                    Someone will have the stock you'll need. It might not be cheap though.

                      I have a Springfield built in October 42 with the correct barrel and stock, but everything else is a mix of manufacturers and dates. I thought about making it right, but man can it get $$$.
