Not clear what you're referring to, but TPI usually means "threads per inch"--for example, a bolt that's 1/4-20 is 1/4 inch diameter, 20 threads per inch. If that's what you're looking for, you probably need to specify what part/screw you're talking about.

Not sure what other threads there are on a Garand receiver

But to be more specific. The number of square threads per inch on the front of the receiver that matches the barrel that screws in to the receiver.
It is just that I don't have a squre thread pitch gauge, but using the 60 degree "V" one I have it looks like 10. Just looking for a confirmation.
