So I may have a couple months until my CMP Service Grade HRA M1 Garand arrives, but I wanted to start getting excited for it and ask about supplies and techniques everyone uses with their Garands. What is your cleaning procedure? I've heard field stripping shouldn't be performed often because it will disrupt the fit of the receiver/stock and will affect accuracy long term. What is your lubrication procedure? What kinds of products do you use? When I receive it from the CMP, should I detail strip completely to clean/inspect? Should it depend on how much cosmoline is packed in there? seems like www.garandgear.com has alot of great articles to follow so I guess I'll start there, but any Garand first timer tips (about anything) would be great! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
