VIDEO: If This Rifle Could Speak

So, I've got seven Garands, but in some ways this is my most intriguing one. It is a mix of a Springfield Armory WWII receiver, a HRA bolt, a WWII era Winchester trigger group (got that wrong in the video) and ... a SA barrel from 1964, two years before the Springfield Armory closed.

What's your favorite mixmaster Garand?

Here's a video look at it.

It would say close the door on your way out.

talk to me

Yeah, I get that same thought.......wonder what you have seen old timer?

GI rifles, or old hunting guns, all the same.

My looker Garand has very small shards of metal, pin head size, here and there on the stock........now what could that be.

I look at a polished by use and carry pump shotgun, or a brush whipped deer rifle and think..........I would like to see all your game piled up in one place.
