    I made this video as a tribute to my Uncle George, who lost a leg at the Battle of the Bulge, serving as a combat medic. The Garand I'm shooting in this video is a Springfield Armory, all correct, built in 1944, with original receiver and barrel. Dean's Gun Restoration replaced the wood, which was post WWII wood, and reparkerized it.

    Hope you like it.

    Good video and a nice M1. DGR did a great job on the stock. What type of walnut is it?

    Just to let you know an "all correct" rifle means all the parts are correct for the serial number, that one has the wrong rear sight on it, it should have a WW2 type 3 lockbar sight.

    Great video - and thanks! What better way to commemorate Memorial Day? :patriot:

    Just one minor quibble: your rifle was made by Springfield Arsenal. Springfield Armory is the modern day company known for its 1911 pistols among other things.
