my 2

1st is a June of 1942 SA, I've made I'd say 90% correct. Still need a narrowbase gas cylinder. Othe is all HRA with a refinished CMP pumpkin stock.
Lots of nice rifles in this thread.

I'm going to buy a gopro camera soon, tired of my awful photography.

Here's my girl Laura.

It's a 1942 Springfield. It was rebuilt in 1965 - new barrel and all - and it looks like it wasn't fired much if at all since then.

I've been mostly happy with it since I got it 10 years ago, but something just wasn't right. So - after paying attention to Wade's stock work I degreased Laura's stock, smoothed it up, and have been laying the teak oil to it. Now it practically GLOWS. So, THANK YOU, Wade!

Here's my hardest M1 "restoration" to date, has a lot of early 1940 era parts, along with a few reproduction parts too (gas system/barrel, recoil spring/follower rod, stock and buttplate). Anyhow, its fully shootable and kind-of neat...

Replica gas trap on a 43k receiver (June 1940):

Type 2 gas trap front end (Rat Worx kit I bought a few years back):

Flush nut early rear sight:

Dual-spring set-up:

I'll never have a real/original gas trap M1, but I am happy with this neat replica M1.

Thanks from Rich D and Allen Humphrey

Fulton Armory also re-parkerized the rifle and they did a great job.


Yes they did. Beautiful.
