I made this video as a tribute to my Uncle George, who lost a leg at the Battle of the Bulge, serving as a combat medic. The Garand I'm shooting in this video is a Springfield Armory, all correct, built in 1944, with original receiver and barrel. Dean's Gun Restoration replaced the wood, which was post WWII wood, and reparkerized it.
Hope you like it.
