    M1 Garand info please

    Hey everyone,
    My precious M1 Garand is in need of re-barreling and I decided getting it re-parkerized as well.
    I'm also thinking having my M1 Carbine rejuvenated.

    Who would you recommend (besides Fulton Armory? They good but a serious backlog)
    Preferably someone that is accepting new work?

    Quite a few of the 'known' outfits seem to have retired or gone silent. Or there's a 2 year backlog....
    Thanks - Gene.

    STS - gone but not forgotten.

    CMP does this but I have no idea of backlog, quality or value of their services but I would suspect they know what they are doing.

    You might also check with Shuff's Parkerizing, I believe he has a good rep.

    Cassat Gun Works in Cassatt, SC is a good one. Issac was contracted by the U.S. Navy Shooting Team to assist the Crane Armorers with maintaining team members guns.

    Getting your rifle rebarreled is the easy part of what your wanting to do, and any gunsmith with a decent amount of experience should be able to do it. I would suggest you purchase a Criterion M1 barrel, and I would make sure to retain the original barrel.

    Parkerizing is another story. There are very few people or companies that have the desire, experience, or equipment to do it and do it right. I don't know the condition of your rifles, but be aware that collectors want to see patina - not rust - on a rifle. Having your rifles reparkerized will kill any collector value they might have had.

    Patina is oiled rust.
