I agree about using the teak oil or flax seed oil. I think that will give you a cool GI look.

When I finished my new CMP stock, I went with a real milk products pure tung oil. If I had to do it again, I would not have used it. Don't get me wrong, it looks great, but now I think I would like something that is going to give the deep red patina look.

I hope you don't mind me posting pictures of mine. I'm just giving you a visual of what I am talking about.




Thanks from Rich D and WaM14gunner

That's a beautiful M1 for sure, no worries. The color of mine is very similar. Its a Boyds stock and it was only stained I think and I am now rubbing in some tung oil. I will post a new pic when it has a few coats on it.

Thanks from jrblanke

Slant cut Op Rod. If it SA I would pull it and use a different one. If Winchester (which is what I bet it is) I would use it. Either way it an early part.

I stole this pic from TheCat, teak oiled. If you want a larger pic, it was swiped from the M1 pics.

Went up to the range today, about 30 miles each way, got there early, in hopes of shooting this M1. County guy drives up and tacks a sign on the gate. RANGE CLOSED TODAY! Great! Turns out the RM had some type of medical event before I got there and off he went to the hospital, no one else around to take his place. So next week will try again. Range is open weekends but frankly its like a dang zoo with the weekend crowd. Sigh...

Congratulations on your new addition. if you have a rifle club near you that run a "Garand Shoot', go for it. You'll enjoy the rifle even more. You are correct; KA is corrosive, PS stamped is not.

Or Service rifle for that matter. You'd be more competitive against Garands though. To me the score doesn't matter too much. Be fore warned, competition is almost as addictive as buying Garands.

My High Power days are long over, last match was in early 90's. I did win a local Garand match some years ago with my H&R DCM rifle. It was a 100 yd reduced course, shot a 467 11X to take top shooter. That's the only score I ever shot that I still remember. Did the bulk of my shooting with first a Fed Ord M14, then later with a Glen Nelson Super Match, though I didn't know it was a GN rifle at that time, just recently found that out.
