    2. Description
      Here's an overview of a 5.4 Mil SA M1 Garand, as delivered from CMP and with a new DGR stock. The original stock was pretty beat but is being restored. All parts except the trigger group are period correct.

      Bob Womack Thanks for your kindness. I suppose the best answer for that step can be found in the authentic SA arsenal practices used in building national match rifles. You can see an example in this thread:

      10 ring Looks good but who does Dean at DGR think he is cutting that rear step into his stocks?? He claims its to increase accuracy, and boasts about all the machinery he bought just to make that cut whatever, but If John Garand wanted that cut in the M1 Garand stock I think he would put one there, besides, in my opinion Deans quality is very poor as of late and his prices don't warrant what he sends you. I would go with James River Armory in the future. 12-10-2011
