M-1 Garand receiver

In keeping with the M-1 Garand posts here and at The firearms Blog, I though I would provide a couple of pictures of what the receiver looked like after it was forged and with the flashing cut off.

First the side views.


DSC_1970sNow the top view.

DSC_1973sFinally the bottom view. The amount of work to go from this to a working receiver is enormous.


Here are a few pictures after it has been partially machined, actually far enough along to have a serial number on it.

Again the side views.


DSC_1976sThe top view. As of yet the receiver has not been marked with the manufacture’s name.

DSC_1975sAnd the bottom view.

DSC_1977sStill more work to do on it.
