Before Continuing!

When I was first getting involved in learning about M1 Garand Rifles I was annoyed that I could not find a well illustrated website showing the basics of taking the rifle apart and more importantly getting it back together! On the following pages you will see how each part fits into the mechanism as a whole and maybe, just maybe, learn what it is supposed to do. This Assembly and Maintenance page of of the M1 Garand Rifle site includes detail and field stripping sections as well as re-assembly procedures that I use.

This section of The M1Garand An American Companion In Three Wars Website has been removed!
(But that is a GOOD THING!)

MemorablePlaces Consulting is very proud to announce that the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has recently acquired this section CMPof our website. MemorablePlaces.com designs and builds websites including this very site which was our offering to the M1 Garand Community. In 2002 the CMP expressed interest in acquiring about 200 pages worth of this site which included the Nomenclature, Field Stripping, Detail Stripping, Reassembly, and the Accessories sections.

In August of 2002 we completed the job of repackaging those areas of the M1 Garand, An American Companion In Three Wars website and we transferred them to the CMP where they are now a permanent part of the CMP website. Terms of the deal are not being disclosed but all online rights and responsibilities for those portions of the site now belong to the Civilian Marksmanhip Program.

A Stack Of M1 Garand Parts


 

On the following pages you will see how each part fits into the mechanism as a whole and maybe, just maybe, learn what it is supposed to do. This Assembly and Maintenance page of of the M1 Garand Rifle site includes detail and field stripping sections as well as re-assembly procedures that I use.

Because I feel that it is important to pass on to others a little of what I learn, (and a lot of people have helped to teach this stuff to me), I decided to put this section together. Please note what this site is and what it is not.

  • It is NOT a guide or instruction manual.
  • It is NOT in any way offering advice.

  • It IS up to you to seek out REAL training from an expert and not rely on this page.
