    M1 Garand Question

    I'm new to the forum. This has probably been beat to death somewhere here on the forum, but I can't find it anywhere...
    Q- If you swap a 6.5 CM barrel onto a Garandicon with a 308 barrel do you have to change another parts. I know about headspace, just don't know about any other parts changes.
    Thx. for any help.

    It ain't over.

Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    There were no parts swapped to change over to .308, just a spacer added so .30 cal ammo wouldn't fit. This should work the same. It's even shorter than .308.
