Field Stripping The M1 Garand

Removing The Stock From The Rifle

After setting the trigger group aside grab the forward handgrip with one hand in order to hold the barrel and receiver in position. Grab the buttstock somewhere around the comb and carefully rotate the buttstock up and off of the receiver legs.

Note how the stock is rotated off of the receiver

Note the relationship of the ferrule to the front handgrip on the receiver.

We now have three distinct groups of parts. The barrel and receiver group, the buttstock, and the trigger group.

If you want to disassemble the rifle further you need to detail strip it.
