Detail Stripping The Stock Assembly Of The M1 Garand

To remove the Buttplate from the M1 Garand's Buttstock I start by opening the cleaning kit access door and removing anything that may be contained therein. In the case of my rifles there is almost always a combo tool and a cleaning kit or oiler.

Next take a standard slotted screwdriver or the GI Combo tool and remove the short Upper Buttplate Screw.

Loosen and remove the Lower Buttplate Bolt. With both of the screws removed, the Buttplate simply pops off.

The Lower Buttplate Bolt uses the Rear Swivel as a nut. When the Lower Buttplate Bolt is removed, simply pull the swivel out.

To finish the detail stripping of the Buttstock turn your attention to the muzzle end of the Stock.
