I received my M1 Garand today 6 June 2022. What a Coincidence that it is the 78th anniversary of the D Day invasion of Normandy France. Please know that I could not be anymore pleased with my rifle and I will tell you it exceeded all of my expectations. The serial number of the rifle corresponds to a September 1944 build date, the same year my Dad was drafted into the US Army and my birth month. It is unbelievable the number of coincidences. In closing I would like to thank armorer #10 for The great job he did building my Garand. He is a true craftsman.
