Re: Numbered Parts

Only the receiver is numbered. Any other numbers are part numbers and you need an in-depth book that will give you want numbers belong in the era of the rifle manufacture. As for parts numbering to the gun serial....no. There were 4 makers of Garands, so one can often see their Garand has mixed manu...

Re: M1 Garand Loading Question

Not a rifle problem! Your entire process is correct! Your final summation incorrect. Once you pull the bolt back, a TIGHT grabbing clip will hold the bolt back as the bolt face meets the cartridge. Then one usually heels the op-rod gently stripping the cartridge from the clip. One should roll the ha...

Re: Different front sight heights?

You only have to raise it about .05"...1/20th
I'd go with JB weld because you could peel it off if desired.

Re: 1943 Remington Rand

You can check to see if the serial number is in a Rem Rand assigned block.But I can tell you for sure you have a M1911 frame, so likely the frame is Colt, and that it received a different slide at another time.

1943 Remington Rand

Back about 11 years ago, I thought I over paid for this pistol. $1000...now that price is a steal.
