Interesting read... thanks for sharing JC.
I've never shot a M1 Garand... but I did finally have the opportunity to take my Ruger Mini-14--and new Ruger AR-556--out to the range with a friend and punch some holes in paper. The Ruger Mini-14 uses the same gas-action as the M1 Garand.
I discovered the Mini-14 is more accurate than I was lead to believe... and friend Frank was laughing as I shot. He said there was a nice tongue of flame leaping-out the end of the barrel on every shot. I also found the new Ruger AR-556 to be quite the shooter. With two clicks to the left on the adj. rear iron-sight, we were chewing the centers out of the targets with no problem. Never a FTF or FTE with 120 rounds downrange. She's a keeper.
