kraigwy and 458winshooter have the spirit of the Garand Match nicely summed up. Fun with a piece from the history books.
The M1 does have some unique traits including changing POI in mid string. Or moving when the barrel heats up. There are some things that can be done to the M1 to improve accuracy,as Howard31 posted, without turning it into an expensive match gun. These are still within the spirit of the match and can encourage the shooter to become more proficient with the fundamentals of marksmanship. Shooting is fun. Shooting accurately is more fun.
