More true if it's a CMP rifle. You can't cover all cheap owners.

Found this posting for a Garand with a Criterion barrel:

Not sure of the caliber but CBI is plainly marked.

None of my 308 garands have a block, not because I am cheap its because they are not needed

That would be what the CMP has been selling.

Those blocks may also wear out other parts on the rifle. I donít have one in my navy garand.

So, did they come with one and you removed it? Or never had it? You know it has purpose. I'd rather have it, if I had several M1s in 30-06. If you only have one in .308, I can see not having it.

Have 26 M1 garands in 30.06 and 2 in 308. They never had the block no reason for them. Its impossible to chamber a 30.06 rd in a 308 chamber, rifle will not fire as the receiver bridge keeps it from happening

I picked up the rifle from a gun shop. It didnít have a block in it when I got it. I read up and saw Gus Fisher talking about the blocks and decided that I donít need to have one in there.
Gus Fisher was an armorer for the Marine rifle team when they were using M1s and M-14s and his postings very informative.

I figure that I can be careful of what I load into the 7.62 garand. I figure the block was put there to ďsailor proofĒ the rifle. (Not meant as an insult to any sailors)

Folks,
PLEASE DON'T BUY OR USE those steel "blocks" in 7.62mm or .308 Garands.
The way the follower arm flexes and rubs those things in recoil, it will wear out the parts that control timing MUCH FASTER than normal !! I have seen this time and time again. I HATE those bloody things the way they do damage to perfectly good parts.
There is NO REASON to put a block in other than to keep from loading a clip of .30-06 ammo in a 7.62mm. The original off white plastic ones the Navy used, and Orion 7 sells and excellent copy of, were mainly just a reminder not to jam up the rifle with a clip of .30-06.
OH, BTW, you HAVE to slightly modify the stock if you use an original or repro off white fiberglass block. The horizontal shelf ahead of where the front receiver legs contact is where you have to cut some clearances so the "feet" of the off white blocks don't get busted/cracked the first time you put the block in the rifle.

Man I am glad you told me that you have 26 Garands. I have 2 and was thinking that getting a third was excessive. I would love to have one that has a SA receiver.

Bad thing is I still have parts I could build 8 more
