Someone went to a great deal of trouble to screw that M1 up.

I almost liked it (shame on me) until I saw the handguard had been removed.
Ick.

Sometimes I see sporterized military rifles (susally bolt action) and can almost understand why .... but NOT with the Garand. IMO it is a perfectly nice rifle as is.

....And what the _____ did they do to the gas tube??????!!!!!

Sometimes these things can be reversed.

When I was a kid, my grandpa had a .30-06 hunting rifle he took on trips to Canada. When he passed away in '63, we tried to shoot it a few times, but could never figure out where the bullets were going. It eventually ended up in my brother's closet, where it sat in it's Monte Carlo stock for over forty years.

In 2008, I was visiting my brother, and suggested we drag the thing out for old time's sake. Lo and behold, I took one look at it and realized it was a sporterized 1903 Springfield. What's more, it was built in '42, had the original four-groove barrel, and all the numbers matched. As a kid, I'd never realized what it was, but now I had to see if I could restore it to it's rightful condition.

Long story short: I stripped it down to the last screw, cleaned it up, swabbed and lapped the bore that had sat neglected for years, and put on a new walnut stock with a hand-rubbed oil finish. I learned the reason we had never been able to hit anything with it (battle sights zeroed at seven hundred yards), started using the ladder sight properly, and found out the old girl can do 1.25 MOA all day long, and 1.0 on good strings.

My grandfather had probably bought this thing for fifty bucks right after WWII, when they were a dime a dozen. I think he'd be proud to see how things finally came full circle, and she's back to "normal" after all these years.

That is one butt-ugly backbirth of a Garand. But I'll bet Tommy Bish would have liked it.

Hell, he might have built the thing.

Ugly to me nut but it appears it has some appeal with 13bids and $1100.0 and reserve not met.I might could picture someone doing that being the old girl was just plain worn out but a 54-56

I got my I-H in the mid-'70s, and at that time they were looked down on as the redheaded stepchildren of the Garand family, not as desirable as a "real" Springfield Armory or Winchester. Today, of course, they're quite desirable and collectible, which makes me happy.

In many cases, these mods were made on guns that, at the time were common as dirt and as cheap.
Did anybody ever think shooter-grade weapons would assume near-collector status?

To All,

Back in the 1970s Kalifronistan days/DAZE those were quite popular (for a time)- I once bought a "sportarized M1" though it looked nothing like that and that thing shot BEAUTIFULLY.
(Some 2-3 years later, I swapped it for a Corvair Spyder, like swapping mules. = The Corvair didn't riun as well as the Garand did, either.)

yours, sw

and if you can't see the front sight, there are alternatives- get a new or newer "trash" gun and red dot or scope it, or hang it up if you're really not that safe

My daughter would be sick looking at those things.

This is her ideal lever gun. Skinner sights and all.
