    Have a coworker who asked me today if I knew of a smith that can look at a Garand for him. Anybody local to Alamance/Orange?

    I know he was going to go to DPRC and shoot and see if some of the folks there could help him, but don't know specifics of his issue. Told him to let me know, i.e. write down what it was doing and I would post up for him. He didn't let me know before he left the plant today.

    Thanks.

    He's not local, but Isaac McCaskill of Cassatt Gun Works (Cassatt, SC) knows his way around the M1 and M14 rifles and is a top-notch gun-plumber. He has no internet presence so you'll have to call him at (803) 713-8762

    I have used Jerry Saunders ( JH Gunsmithing) and have been satisfied with his work. He has never worked on my Garand, but has done three different jobs for me and seems quite knowledgeable. He is way up Pagetown Rd in northern Alamance County near the Caswell line. I have not used them, but Maverick Gunworks in Mebane has gotten positive reviews on this forum. Any good gunsmith should know his way around a Garand.

    Try to find a gentleman buy the name of Brian Cranberry or Granberry. I think it's the latter. I think he's in Salisbury. It's been a few years but he's a good man to see about anything related to most military arms. If his M1 is jamming (especially on the 7th round) I can tell him what the culprit may be as it happened to me. There is of course a wealth of information online.

    Saw him today at Rowan county Wildlife club high power match. He's having a time with his elderly mother so he might not be as available as he usually is... from RCWA high power webpage .... For more information contact Brian Granberry – 704-754-7298 email is ... sights-m1@live.com

    I had him do a trigger group for my M1 and M1A....nice work! Price seems a bit high, but you get what you pay for. Brian is respected in his field
