Just keep a few extra around.

Occasionally, toss one up in the air...and watch to see if anything tries to take advantage of the fact that your gun is supposedly empty.

Kudos Young Sir!

I love hearing the ping at the end! One of the best sounds in the world!

I finally scored my Garand last summer. Went down to my FFL to pick up an A1 receiver set for a 20" retro build I was doing and he had a '44 Springfield Armory on his back wall. The stock had a lot of battle chatter in it but the receiver, barrel and action metal was pristine. At $800 it was a steal. I had him toss it on the 4473 right then and there.

OP, go to ammogarand.com and get you some pre-packed 48-round bandoliers and order a small pile of AP blacktips while you're at it. Good times.

That’s be like putting 24” rims and a gay paint job on a 69 Camaro. This one is staying stock.

My bad friend. I responded to the wrong comment. It was meant for the person suggesting a synthetic stock and stuff.

This ones had the trigger housing replaced or was built with a Winchester trigger housing. Hammer and all other parts on the gun are Springfield

Its a shame you are taking her on fishing trip, would be terrible if she fell over the side somewhere in the middle of the lake.

Don't go where I was, water is so rough, it shook everything out of the boat. Tragic loss.

Definitely needs new synthetic stock with lots of rails and attachments like red dot and magnifier, flashlight, flip up sights, bipod, extended mag, camo paint, binary trigger, three-point sling, flash hider with threads for mounting suppressor, /s

Its a very nice rifle.

I love the way an M1 sounds when fired. It's unique to this particular rifle model. It's a hard metallic "clank" that you will never forget.

Great Rifle!
