    Accuracy Garand Build

    I have always wanted to do a accuracy garand build, here is the story
    Awhile back that I picked up a unissued 7.62 Navy barrel on another gun forum. This was the heart of this rifle





    I installed the NOS barrel on a real nice SA 5.4 receiver ,all I had to do was lap the bolt to get it to headspace.
    Did some work to trigger group , has a nice 5lb pull.
    List of parts are:
    Excellent condition USGI NM front and rear sights and trigger group. Balance of the rest of parts are NOS unissued.
    NOS Op Rod, NM gas cylinder, 65 series SA bolt, gas screw , lock and internals.
    Stock is commercial and has had wood removed for function and accuracy .Did some NM mod work to the rear handguard but that's where I decided to leave the rest to the experts. Sent the rifle off to Ted Brown for a bedding job and NM work to front handguard. He remove the liner, glue and screwed lower band to front handguard
    I am happy with his work and pleased on how this build turned out

    Very nice! That's what I wanted when I went looking for a Garand. No time to build with still doing the daily grind, let alone the skills, yet, so just ordered one from Fulton.

    100yds, bench. She has potential, not bad for a USGI barrel. I just need to get more range time with her.
