    Next Project # 6

    I have been bit with the Garand bug and today this arrived . Another great looking stock from Dean's Gun Restoration. This will be #6 and it will be a more precise(re: pricey) build. I have a Criterion chrome lined barrel from Fulton Armory and one of many "spaghetti" Garand receivers to start with. Now to start finding all the little bits to make it ''ping''!

    This is getting to be an expensive habit you're forming, are we going to have to have an intervention???

    Does the phrase "Get off my lawn!" ring a bell!.

    Considering I purchased 1 solitary receiver to build over a longer period of time. With a little prodding from another Garand enthusiast I have built a few more. After every build it still gives me a tingle to hear that familiar "ping" as another one is reborn!Now if I could only get my hands on some of that Greek surplus ammo the Americans keep finding!

    #6 is Alive! All the parts found their way to my door and ended up as this.

    Now that this one is finished I have that Norinco 305 project to work on. Still will be on the hunt for parts to finish #'s 7,8,9 and 10! (maybe 11, I might have a receiver hiding here somewheres)

    The Deans stocks are pricey but to date they are a true 'drop in' fit. The chrome lined Criterion barrel was a bit of a cheat with no reaming required. Headspaced perfect with a Breda bolt. As soon as the snow disappears I am heading out into the woods for the test firing. (can't afford to lose any brass!)
