Two new additions to my gun collection. I purchased them from the estate of a family member who passed away. A Korean War veteran and a good man.

i just love those old guns!!! sorry about your loss.. i never did care much about matching sn numbers and so forth.. i only care if it shoots well, if I can cast for it, and if I can get or make brass for it.. nice job with the video!

Sorry to hear about the passing of your family member, but it sounds like those rifles went to a great home!. I've had quite a few M1 Garands over the years for collecting purposes as well as shooting in CMP/Service rifle competitions. They're fantastic rifles! I'd suggest joining the GCA(Garand collector's association). They put out a quarterly magazine worth the annual fee alone) and do tons of research on all things M1 Garand. A good bit of the Garands were sent over seas where parts were swapped around or were arsenal rebuilt here in the U.S. I've owned a couple of all-correct M1 Garands, including the first one I ever purchased and still own, a post WWII Springfield Armory. I have a WWII Springfield that's been rebuilt, which I use for my match shooting. Anyways, lots of great information out there! Scott Duff published a number of great reference guides to the M1 Garand. I'm not the most knowledgeable, but know my way around an M1 Garand pretty well. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to help out.

Awesome. I appreciate the info on the GCA will definitely look into them. I do have a question maybe you can answer. The end of the barrel inside at the muzzle appears to be threaded. I noticed it when I was checking to see if it had been counter bored by placing a bullet in the muzzle. When it went to the case neck I assumed it had been counter bored. When I looked close, it looks like fine threads. I cannot fine any info on it. Ever seen that? Any idea?

@NC Gun Guy : I've never seen that personally. Just throwing this out there, but there are quite a few recovered/re-activated drill rifles out there floating around. Your rifle looks really nice; I'd be surprised if it was. Does the barrel have any import markings? Any idea what the muzzle gauges at? If it shoots great, I would sweat it too much. Maybe take a picture of it?

@Christian Grest: I will tear it all down this weekend to oil and grease properly. When I do I’m going to get as much info off the parts as I can. I will also make and post a follow up video on it and I’ll show that threaded muzzle. Like I said I only shot 8 rounds through it but it shot great no malfunctions and was very accurate. Well for me shooting it anyway. Lol. Stay tuned brother they will be more to come. Maybe you can shed some light.
