    So my gunsmith buddy knows I like Milsurps, and offered me a Springfield Garand Receiver that he had laying around . Of course I gladly gave him $150 for it! My next question is what to do with it? I like the idea of building one of the BM59 kits that Sarco has now. But I kind of feel guilty about cutting up a USGI receiver . What would you guys do / build?

    If you already have a M1 Grand, build one in 7.62X51

    You are going to chop a prewar Garand to build a clone of an Italian rifle? Get the **** outta here!

    That Mongolian beef looks way under cooked.

    Give you $175...and I'll build a 458wm Garand.

    In all seriousness, I'd build a 308 if I already had a 30-06.

    I'll toot my 9.3x62 horn here- that's a unicorn build for me. 9.3 in a Garand. 3,800ft lbs. x8! It would probably take less to work well than the 458 too...

    You should sell or trade it to me. Seriously, I’d like to have it to build a period-correct rifle for my son
