Somebody did a comparison relatively recently maybe the GCA using the m2 flash hider with 173 gr ball ammo if I recall correctly.
It was more than one rifle selected and a few exhibited better groups during the testing.
More than likely it was just better stock or handguard fit or some other circumstance which had an additive effect. I cant remember the exact conclusions but it was an interesting read at the time.

As far as accuracy goes this rifle is very good without the scope. It will be interesting to see how much better or worse it becomes once I find a scope mount.


Anytime ����
I dont think a scope will make the rifle anymore accurate but it may make the target appear larger.

It may at least help my aging eyes see the target better thus making me more accurate.

So many very nice Garands!

No "Garand Porn" thread would be complete without a pic of our friend Mooseman shooting an M1.

We miss you every day, Buck!

With this thread in mind I got to looking thru pics taken at past Hooligan shoots. Trust me - there are thousands of them...

Here are a few pics from the Hooligan archives of 4570 shooting Garands back in 2013. Since he's my friend, I gotta roast him:

Hey 4570! It's a little harder to get back up from that prone position than it used to be - right? Maybe that's why we're both shooting a lot more BP...
