I've been working on and inspecting Garands for going on 30 years now. That and have owned/shot just about every milsurp out there. I have a full set of Ordnance gages for the Garand/ M14 /M16 and Carbine. I even have the nearly unobtainable garand receiver stretch gage to check for wear in the firing pin bridge area. Any interest in me providing a tech inspection in the Piedmont area or even further if you have multiple rifles? I don't mind travelling as I will come to you. I will even fill out a datasheet on the Garand as well...noting any defects or issues I find.
