Garand Weekend (Bloomfield & Bedford, IN)

Nov 12, 2016 @ 9:00 amNov 13, 2016 @ 4:00 pm EST

This will be a special two day event to work with owners of the “U.S. Rifle, Cal. 30, Model 1”.

Day 1—Your M1, Inside and Out.

Prerequisites: A M1 rifle, complete.

The Garand Maintenance class will begin with a Saturday devoted to identification, maintenance, history and pedigree of the “U.S. Rifle, Cal. 30, Model 1”. Participants will learn the following:

  1. A full look will be given at the history of the Garand’s production run and its role in American history.
  2. A guided tour of your rifle during breakdown to the last detail and evaluation of wear and potential lifespan.
  3. You will identify the date of manufacture of your rifle’s components and build a full pedigree of that rifle.
  4. You will learn to disassemble, clean, properly lubricate, and reassemble your M1.

Tools will be provided to gauge wear on barrels, gas cylinders, etc.

Day 2—Sighting Your M1: The Battle Sight, It’s Adjustment and Use.

Prerequisites: 100 rounds of M2 ball ammunition or equivalent. Eye and ear protection are required.

On day two you will meet at the range where you will get zeroes to 200 yards and reset your elevation drum to ensure the graduations fit M2 ball ammo. When your sights are properly adjusted, you will shoot a CMP sanctioned John C. Garand Match with your cleaned, lubed, and zeroed M1.
