    20 July 2022 Garand Picture of the Day



    160817-N-PM781-002
    WASHINGTON (Aug. 17, 2016) An M1icon Garand rifle used by U.S. Marine Corps Raiders during the World War II attack on Japaneseicon military forces on Makin Island is at Naval History and Heritage Command's (NHHC) Underwater Archaeology Branch. Due to the rifle's significant surface concretions, corrosion, and other physical damage, NHHC Underwater Archaeology Branch is performing an assessment of the artifact's stability.
    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  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. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    I think if they put in a block of clear epoxy resin it's further deterioration would cease. No air, not a further problem.

    The metal parts may be in much better condition than they currently look.

    Pretty neat you can still see the oiler I believe it is, in it's storage compartment in the butt stock. I bet the damage in that area was either caused by a bullet or shrapnel smashing the stock in that area. Probably didn't turn out well for the young man carrying it I would imagine.

    Yes, the early Nickle oiler and pull through case. That's been noted on other descriptions of the rifle...
