SA Garand receiver modified to take M-14 mags. 30/06 barrel replaced with a 308 tanker barrel & SE recoil compensator added. Modified a M14E2 stock to fit it.

This is my absolute favorite rifle.
NM front & rear sights.

What I was trying to build was power of main battle rifle with mobility of an assault rifle. Wanted hard hitting & good iron sights to 500 yds. Before knocking a shoulder out was able to hold it in one hand & empty the mag.

She is a dream to shoot. Something to think about though is with a full length barrel the rifle is unbalanced. With standard stock you have the goodies in the buttstock which acts as a counterweight. But this isn't a problem with the shorter tanker barrel. I was so impressed with the SE recoil compensator I put one on my AK.

HuntingHawk:

I'm not sure if it's my computer but your pics seem to go from big to very small on the last two...

Let me know if that was intentional or if I should check my computer...

Aloha,

Tom O.

PS... Like your post, that's why I came back to see more... :lol:

"SE recoil compensator". Who makes this?

That is a fine looking weapon. I'm really impressed. Is there anyone doing this commercially?

Been over 15 years since I had the Garand converted & don't remember the name of the place but receiver work was done in a place in Charleston,SC. I'm not familiar with the BM59 but if anything like this, one would be well worth having.
Anyone wants anymore pics of it just let me know.
