Just picked up a nice 1943 M1 Garand almost correct, it appears to have all original parts except for the gas cylinder and oprod. The bore is quite nice with a throat erosion of 3.5 the muzzle is a bit worn but the rifling is still visible. And the guy I got it from said it is a good shooter and I've known him for many years. The thing that bugs me is when I fire the gun I can feel the front to back movement in the stock. I am going to try to find a trigger guard without worn tabs, that should help lock up but I do not think it will help with the front to rear movement of the stock. Are there any tips besides bedding the rifle that I can do without major alteration to the stock as it is the original World War II stock. I would not be against replacing the stock if I could find a good GI stock that had good lock up. And just keeping this one if I ever decided to get rid of the gun. But I think I'm going to have a hard time finding a decent stock that matches the patina of the front handguards.
