Gentlemen,
Sorry I was gone so long. Lost 4 computers at the same time. I have been rebuilding the systems and should have both of my web sites up and running in a few days. Working with Vista I don't need to say more. This is for the NEW guys. If you older guys could please email me so that I can rebuild my data and emails. Thanks.
Here we go again. Below is a photo of the op-rod on the M1 Garand. As you can see the Piston is getting a special hardening. What other part of the op-rod received a special hardening and why?? Have fun with this one.

Admiral Yamamoto

A Veteran, whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve, is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount of “up to and including my life.”

Thanks again for taking the time and effort to read this data. I hope you have learned a little of the history of the M1 Garand.

ps Could use some hits. I hope to have both sites update in soon. Have fun hope you enjoy and learn.
