Garand Accurize Link from CMP Forum

I've been reading all that I can find on the topic on this forum, learned a lot!!!
So I went over to the CMP forum, and found this link.
Very good, I thought.

These are accuracy mods that keep the rifle CMP competition eligible.
Some have been covered here in great detail, some I haven't seen here.
For those that are in the know, please let us know what you think of these mods......

Particularly the: (according to the author)
Firing Pin Relief Cut
Receiver Heel Cut

The firing pin cut has nothing to do with accuracy
The receiver heel cut has been discussed here before. .The mods he talks about are mainly for new commercial stocks. Those are just things to check for on the stocks. Some stocks are properly made and need nothing, others need work

Thanks from nf1e, MeatyMac, Rich D and 1 others

I'm not a fan of cutting the tenon off the front of the stock to reposition it, it's too high a pressure point to trust to glue IMO. I file, sand & Dremel the tenon and fill with Brownells Acraglas gel then sand to fit the ferrule. Because the ferrule is ribbed on the inside if you Acraglas it in place you'll never get it off w/o ruining the ferrule, best to build up the area with Acraglas gel, let dry solid, then shape the tenon to fit the ferrule.

EDIT: If it's a JCG Match rifle the Acraglas gel will disqualify it, if I was prepping a JCG Match rifle the ferrule tenon position would be of upmost concern, it would have to be right as is or I'm looking for another stock for that build.

Thanks from ColdWarPigGnR

I would not use that method either
This is how I have fixed ferrules that set to high
I carved out some of the wood with a utility knife and dremel until it set in the proper position


I then had to fill in the area on the bottom of the stock since the ferrule set lower so it would stay in place when tightened
I taped off the stock, and applied paste wax to the ferrule for a release.
Then placed JB Weld to the bottom of where the ferrule sets on the stock, put ferrule in place and start to tighten the screw but not all the way





Thanks from Phil McGrath and rvr350
