No that sounds like fun!!!Doug Bowser said:I bought a rebuilt Springfield M1 Garand from the DCM in 1982. The cost was $112.00 delivered. It had a new Springfield barrel on it. I had the rifle accurized by a former US Army gunsmith from Fort Benning, GA, named Hook Bowden.
It was amazing, the groups shrunk from 5" at 100 to 1".
I shot the rifle in service rifle competition until I bought a NM M1A. We used to shoot the Rattle Battle at our club and at 600 yards the rifle was deadly. You would be in position with the rifle loaded and the target was exposed to the shooter for 50 seconds. I used to shoot 23 to 24 shots from the M1 in 50 seconds and have 21 hits average on the US Army "E" silhouette.
Age has taken over on me and I am not that fast any more but the M1 rifle is still very accurate and can perform as well as always.
