Hi all,
We know that in the Winchester order that for ever 100 M1 Garands built, Winchester had to build 6 spare barreled receivers with serial numbers. Also bolts, stocks, etc., Was there a test for these? If so how were these tested?
Have fun on this one.
Thanks again
Clancy

Hi all,
All barreled receivers as spare parts had to be tested with one round of proof load then marked.
All other spare parts were tested and proofed.
Thanks again
