Happy and honored to own a piece of history

First off I want to say how much I appreciate what you guys do. About 10 years ago is when I first heard you could purchase an M1 Garand. From that day forward I wanted one. And I wanted one bad. But I didn’t have the money. I love military history.
So after years of saving and finally making good money, I finally got to purchase one in June of this year. When I put my order in I only had one request, I wanted a Springfield Armory. See I live 30 minute from Springfield Armory. Now I know it technically isn’t the same company, but I’m a big fan of them. So I don’t know if it was by luck or honoring my request but I got a June 1944 Springfield Armory. And a mostly correct one with great readings to.
I’m currently refinishing the stock. I disassembled the whole rifle, stripped the stock, and am using Pure Tung Oil to finish it. I have only just put the first coat on and am really loving the color.
In the end, I’m just happy and honored to own a piece of history. Thanks,
