Winchester M1 Garand

Post by echo1 »

Hi Fellas,

I've got a Winchester receivered M1 with a shot out Springfield barrel. Has some other Winchester stamped parts. What are my options to get it to be a decent shooter? It's my onliest M1. Thanks PAX

My choice for a decent shooter would be a new Criterion .30-06 M1 barrel for $260. Not going to be original USGI but likely more accurate. These are the same barrels that the CMP uses on their "Special" rifles.

Someone else may know a source for new USGI Winchester barrels but I doubt that they would be much cheaper, and perhaps even more expensive. And, that assumes that new in-the-wrap USGI Winchester barrels even exist. If the CMP doesn't have any NOS M1 barrels then I don't know who would.

Well Fellas, I was surprised at the rapid replies I received from the various Boards I'm on. I got this list sent to me, and went with #5 just to have it if/when needed.

1. SA 6(or 8?)-48, TE=3, MW=3, chromed gas cylinder pads........$90
2. SA 9-64, TE=3+, MW=4.....$75
3. SA 3-44, TE=4+, MW=4......$60
4. SA 12-41, TE=2, MW=1......$200
5. VAR 6-61, TE=1, MW=2......$180

Thanks all, PAX
