Once again, you guys are great. Very informative. I went to the range today and apparently when i assembled this from cleaning, the op rod was not connected to the bolt. Geez. Garands were not my era so back home to look at videos. Op rod spring out, oprod to the side, bolt inserted, op rod connected, back to stand by. But no shooting of the rifle today...shot pistol on steel. I wanted to see if taking apart and reassembling the rear sight helped. I can try another stock. I could put this in the back of the safe but it will get passed on to another shooter at some point so i do want to get this resolved. I like this site a lot, and particularly the cr section. Smart guys and gals with good knowledge willing to help. Its a very nice community and this is one of the reasons i started shooting 57 years ago. By the time i was in HS the rifle team was a little weird to the track team and wrestlers, but i liked that.

Took this garand to the range. Still shooting right wihout big front sight adjustment. Took some photos of the sights and sent an email to CMP. I have had it 5-7 years, so we shall see. But it is FUN.

Grab the gas cylinder and try to rotate it, does it move? The gunsmith you went to doesn't know what he is talking about. Barrels can be over or under indexed

CMP responded to y emails. The head armorer believes barrel no indexed properly. If too tight, needs replacement. If too loose can be tightened. I am the cmp buyer and have had it for 5 or sonyears and never shot it. I am asking if they will repair at no cost as it left cmp in this condition. Reasonable request?

As long as it has not been messed with and it left CMP that way, I think it is a reasonable request. Worst case, all they can do is say no and you would have to pay for the repair. Since you are the original purchaser, I would certainly believe they would take care of it.

If they decide to charge for the replacement/repair and it were my decision, I would contact Charlie Maloney. His contact info is: www.charliemaloney.com

I am biased but i thought the request was reasonable. They can tell if its been tampered with. Have not heard back. But they do respond. Dug the papers out and i received this 9/14. Never shot it, never messed with it. Just put it away. So we shall see. I know i received it in this exact condition. Its a good reason to shoot what you buy when you take possession. Thanks for responding.

While CMP "might" fix it do you think any other company would after all this time? No
I guess the real question is why did you by a Garand and never shoot it? That's something I couldn't do

Unless it is illegal or immoral, no request is unreasonable. I don’t think they will honor it though. Yes, you may be the original buyer, but it has been 4 years. CMP is pretty good, but most places wouldn’t warranty anything for more than maybe a year at best.

So I wouldn’t expect them to agree to fix it at no cost. They might, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.

Also no, they can’t be sure it wasn’t messed with, even if you are the original buyer.
