Repost: M1 Project 8/?/06

My friend and I looked over my M-1. The barrel looked pretty shot up, as we could tell it was mostly operated by right handed shooters by the wear from the cleaning rod on the right side of the muzzle. We recrowned the barrel, but barrel shows a lot of wear. This gives me an excuse to order a .308 Win barrel and use it instead of the .30-06. Our best bet is that this rifle was built in 1944, saw some action in WWII and was returned to the US. International Harvester put a new trigger assembly on and shipped it to Greece. The rear site was repaired and the op rod looked good too. He gave me some parts too- clips, and an open bolt indicator. He said he’d try to dig up a buttplate, sling swivels and handguard hardware.
