Tonight's Puzzle! The M-1 Garand

So taking it apart is easy, does anyone have any hints for this?













So far I have done the usual, simple green and water in the ultrasonic cleaner and then spray down with Break Free. So my question is what to simply wipe down and where to put grease? Any tips on reassembly? What to look for on abnormal wear? Leather sling and proper gas port tools are on the way.

  1. Here's the Army manual on it. Roughly... if metal rubs on metal, grease it, except perhaps the gas piston. Extra grease on the bolt runs.

  5. That's a step further than I ever go. The trigger assembly stay together and get soaked and blown out with an air hose. I bookmarked OldNFO's suggested page, too.
