    Gentlemen,

    How about that many in your gun room. One thing I would like to ask if I may. What are they doing to our M1 Garands ?

    Sorry about this pic. it was on old microfilm from the late 1940's

    I find the production capabilities of the time, and especially that of the M1, fascinating. I would love to go back in time and tour a Springfield Armory or Mauser factory.

    I from the late 1940's probably dunking them in the preservative before placing in barrels/drums to be sealed for storage.

    Looks like they are applying the acceptance marks to the stocks.

    No Clue

    Clancy,

    I've been thinking about this photo for a day or two and am clueless. The guy in the white sleeves looks like he's working on a rear sight. I can't tell for sure, but the guy to his right may have a rifle inclined barrel down. There's not enough detail for the others, except the bubba mid-pictures gasping in awe at his day's quota. :)

    So just what are they doing?

    John

    Gentlemen,

    Many of you had the answer or were very close. The answer to the photo above shows the following:

    These M1 Garand Rifles are being checked and greasing the rifles is done by hand.

    Time frame about 1943 ?

    Take a look at the next file.
    Thanks again
    Clancy
