At my grand-in-laws for Turkey day... Grandpa's got a garand collecting dust in the basement... I'm not too familiar with garands because they were always beyond my gun budget. This is a short, tanker model. Springfield marked receiver, no other markings except for numbers on the bolt. What I found odd was the bolt is chromed or polished or something. I've never seen this before on the garand I've handled before. Didn't find anything similar via Google search, maybe he did it himself. Thought I'd put it up here. Grandpa may not be able to give too many details, if you know what I mean. Thanks NWFA!
