It's been a while since I have been on the forums So I figure Why not start some pictures. The stacks would have looked better if they were all the same rifles, But I don't own enough of any one type of rifle. The Japanese stack probably would have looked better with two Type-38's and a Type-30 since they are closer in size, But I figured two Type-99's and a Type-38 fit better next to two M1 Garands and a M1903A3 Springfield.
(The M1's are Korean War vintage not WWII which would technically not make them old enemies but I figure it was close enough for artistic purposes)
SHUFF’S MINI-G W/ SCOUT RAIL The Mini-G is a completely new Garand carbine conversion. The key to successfully shortening the M1 Garand lies with precise bending of the op-rod. The process used in making a Shuff’s Mini-G bends the op-rod consistently to the perfect dimensions every time, ensuring that no reliability is sacrificed in the conversion process. The front handguard is also removed completely, rather than leaving a stumpy modified nub as with the old-style Tanker conversions. To further ensure reliability, the Mini-G conversion includes a Schuster adjustable gas lock screw so that you can tune your Mini-G to run reliably with whatever ammo you choose.

I have a CMP M1 Garand that came with a new Boyd Stock. I disassembled the stock and can see in the hidden areas that the stock was stained.
Does anyone know if they also applied any finish on top of the stain and if so what type of finish it is?
To my completely untrained eye it looks like stained raw wood but it would be great to get some expert opinions on this.
Thanks in advance.
Great news. I received an email from CMP that they received my order for a Garand. They are saying it will be at least 30-60 days. I can wait. At least I got it in before the deadline. The order was received 05/16 (the last date for orders) so I will probably get one of the last ones they build (until they open it up again). I have to pickup some ammo now.
Would have been hilarious if she missed and shot No. That's a pretty cool way of proposing. One of my first dates with my wife was a trip to the shooting range up in the Poconos. They had just about every gun you could want to try in different calibers. M1 Garand was by far my favorite. They had a MP5 that was a load of fun too.
