Re-assembly of the M1 Garand rifle is a process
that can take a couple of weeks to learn. Becoming
familiar with how a firearm operates and how the
parts work together is very important for a plethora
of reasons not the least of which is keeping it
functioning. Being able to take a weapon down to
its individual parts helps one learn these things.
Always wear safety
glasses when working on my rifles as there
is the possibility of a spring popping lose and
you don't want to lose my vision over maintaining
an M1.. no matter how historic.
Once the rifle has
been Field Stripped we turn our attention to the following
individual groups and take them apart one at a time.
