1943 Winchester M1 Garand

I thought I would make my first post showing my WWII collection

My First one is a 1943 Winchester M1 Garand
It it about 80% Correct,




WWII Lock bar sights



Winchester Barrel


Winchester Trigger Group
Notice the Un-modified Pad




Winchester Gas Cylinder



Winchester Follower

Winchester Trigger Guard

Winchester Butt plate


Unfortunately the Stock is an Overton Arsenal replacment
and the Op Rod is a National Match

I also have a nice 1943 bayonet for it.


I also collect of the WWI items to complement the firearm
1943 Steel pennies and silver nickles. 1943 head stamped 30-06 ammo
Bore cleaner and K-ration Lucky strikes.

Nice Rig!! I bought a Winnie parade rifle just for the bar sight for $75 figured the site was worth that much.

Beautiful rifle.

The Lucky Strikes and wheat pennies are a nice touch.

Side note:

Wonder were he found the steel pennies. Oh, I've got a bunch but I've had them longer than some of the guys have been alive. Also, in 1941 the Luckies would still been in a green pack. As late as the mid-1950s a green pack of 4 cigs would show up in an old pack of C-rations. And, yes, I smoked them.

In high school I smoked either Camels or Luckies at 11 cents a pack. I carried a pack of Wings in my shirt pocket for the bummers and mine in my socks on ROTC days and in my boots when I wore jeans. Bobby Johnson switched me to Pall Malls. Man, she had me wrapped around her little finger.

I actually started smoking with C-rat cigarettes. During SERE I was pretty sick and couldn't keep any food down. We had all started with one issued C-rat, and I ended up giving everything except the liquids to other guys. In exchange they tossed me their little cigarette packs. "What the hell?" I thought.

I ended up with a fifteen year habit that was very hard to kick.
