    Lets Build Another Garand!

    Okydoky folks! As this is a 'gun forum', what better than to start another Italian Garand project. This will be a bit different than my others because......


    ...it's called 'GOC Choice'. To have some fun, you choose what goes into this one from my available parts. I will do a photo journal of this build as we progress.The choices will be up for a few days and hopefully we get more than one vote. We will start with the choice of Receiver. Beretta or Breda?

    [IMG][/IMG]



    It is hard to see in the photo but, the Beretta is black and the Breda is a shade of dark grey/green (lighting?)

    Tell your 'bff', your dog, cat, crayfish,pizza munching parrot.....! Again, fun,fun,fun!

    Looks like we are going Beretta.

    What are the thoughts on filling the serial number and crown with white paint. Yes/No?

    And bigger choices!

    - .308 Wilson Match barrel 1-12 twist NOS, in the white. GI profile
    - 30.06 NOS Numrich house barrel. 40 years old, 6 groove, GI profile
    - 30.06 Danish VAR. 1961 vintage, te/3-mw/2
    - 30.06 Marlin replacement. te/3-mw/2


    Barrels in same order T-B.
