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)
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.
Not everyone uses their rifles in the same way or for the same reasons.
Flat absolute statements of “good enough” may not be for some folks.
Just because you don’t have the need to take a shot at 200 or longer doesn’t mean someone else doesn’t.
We need to stop assuming everyone has the same frame of reference.
The truth is a 50 yard zero does not always equal a 200 yard zero and if you are looking for the ability to make a 200 yard precision shot, which is something the AR platform is completely capable of, you need to confirm at distance.
That's kinda what I was thinking too? Zombie shots at 200 yards? Taking out a neighbor down the street at 200 yards? Didn't think so.
Most defensive uses would be even inside the 50 yard mark, or 10 or less like you mentioned.
