    I may have forgot some simple stock parts. The wood still gets a light tung oil application every few days and now it's put the rear sling swivel in (the right direction), place the butt plate where it belongs and screw it into place. Sometimes a new stock might need the top wood screw hole drilled out a tiny bit. Not on this Minnelli.

    loosen up the screw on the front sling ferrule ans tap it on the front of the stock. tighten it up and all is good .

    Now slightly tilt the rear stock away from the upper and place the front ferrule into the lower band.

    then push the two groups together.

    I love the inner workings of the garand, all these parts working together to produce the iconic ping.

    Now take that trigger group that has been waiting for this moment, and lube those locking lugs.

    cock the hammer back, open the trigger guard up and place it into the receiver.

    when it drops into place, (might need some wiggling to do that) push the trigger guard down as far as it will go.IMG_0553.jpg
    It might click into place with hand pressure it might not. It may go in with the guard being placed on a firm surface and the rifle given a good shove down. and then sometimes you just have to club it into place. I have seen photos of the Springfield Armory assemblers using a wooden mallet the size of a Folgers coffee can to fit the trigger assembly in place.

    ....But..I do not drink coffee. So I have a misfit old stock that takes the place of a BFH.

    I give the trigger guard a good solid thump with the flat side of the buttstock while holding the rifle on a solid surface. That railing is plenty solid.

    ...and that's that.

    All that is left is a rear sight. Once I get dinner out of the way I may just have a go at that.
    This is what I'm working with. Nice, clean and little or no wear.

    Hate to tell you this but attachments 19970 and 19971 don’t show

    Working now, I couldn’t see them earlier.

    I find it goes squirrelly sometimes if I try to load too many pictures in a row. Backing out and refreshing the page between posts seems to help.
