    Added Another Garand

    Just picked up a Winchester Garand from a private owner.
    Its a LEAD Letterkenny 1965 rebuild

    It is a rifle that falls in the group of duplicate serial numbers, notice the "A" at the end of the serial

    Letterkenny rebuild triangle ink stamp on grip

    Unfortunatly there are alot of dents on the stock, looks as though other rifles were stacked on top of it. I'm not going to mess with them as I want to keep the original color to the stock
    Marlin 1953 barrel, Muzzle Wear- .5 Throat Wear- 1

    Rifle looks to have been fired very little since rebuild as there is no wear to the park on the bolt and very little wear to the finish on the Op Rod


    Hopefully the weather will break here in Ohio so I can get her to the range, should be a good shooter

    Nice! I love my CMP garand. It is my most accurate and consistent shooting autoloader, and nearly as accurate as my K-31 Swiss. They have both percolated to the top of my range trip list, since accurate rifles are interesting (to paraphrase the late Col. Jeff Cooper).

    Springfield arms does NM trig jobs to Garands for a reasonable price. They also do parking, and check thru the rifle for parts wear.

    This one isnt getting touched other than to the range. It would kill the collector value
    I have built and have had Garands built. When I need rifles reparked or trigger work done I use Shuffs Parkerizing. IMO he's one of the best in the bussiness and no one has a faster turn around time than him . Gauranteed to be on its way back to you 5 days after he receivers your rifle
