I saw on the blog roll last night from Lyle over at Joe’s place that there is finally an M1 Garand UltiMAK rail. I was ready to start jumping up and down for joy and then the reality set in. I love my M1, I love it so much I do NOT want to change it. It was manufactured January of 1944 and the stocks appear to be original.
The thing is I do shoot that M1, I pull it out for CMP, and I do enjoy having a rifle around with iron sights to practice with. I would definitely shoot the M1 more if I put a rail on there, I just can’t bring myself to alter a piece of history. I guess it’s time to add another to the collection.
