M1 Garand

The M1 Garand: the rifle that helped win WWII and still a favorite of collectors, competitors, shooters, and hunters today. The beauty of the M1 Garand is that while they are classic icons of a bygone era, they can still be found in great numbers and at reasonable prices. What that means to us is that the M1 Garand is a rifle that’s just begging to be tinkered with, modified, and refined. Whether you want to restore your rifle to the condition it was the day it left the factory, or you want to modify it into something truly unique, Shuff’s has an option for you. Check the ordering page for return shipping rates.



If your rifle just needs a simple refinishing, then consider a parkerizing job. A la carte pricing is also available for individual parts. 



For your M1 to truly be restored to its original state, you may want to add a reproduction cartouche, or inspector’s stamp, to your rifle’s stock. Details.


Trigger Job

Most surplus Garands have a trigger pull weight of between 6 and 6.5 lbs. The final stage of the trigger pull is weighty and long. The Shuff’s trigger job will lengthen the first stage and create a very crisp and short second stage ending at a very noticeable “wall”. This “wall” will break crisp and clean at around 5 lbs for a much more controllable shot. The sear on your trigger must be in good condition in order for this to work.


Barrel Replacement 

If your M1 is in need of a barrel replacement, I can provide a brand new Criterion or Citadel .30-06, .308, or .35 Whelen barrel  If you have your own barrel, I can install that for you or I can re-crown your old one. 



Mini-G Conversion  

Love your Garand, but wish it had the handling characteristics of a carbine? The Mini-G conversion gives you the best of both worlds.  Comes standard with Shuff’s bolt hold open (just like a holbrook device)



Mag-Fed conversion    

Everybody loves the “ping” sound of an enbloc clip ejecting, but let’s face it; 8 rounds isn’t much to work with by today’s standards. I can convert your Garand to accept M-14 magazines, and rebarrel it for .308 so you get the quality of a GI receiver and the function of a slightly more modern rifle. Details.


M1D Sniper Mod

The M1D mod is one of the coolest modifications you can do to an M1 Garand. Originals cost in excess of $4000 but I can make you an outstanding replica for far less. You provide the rifle and conversion parts and I’ll make the necessary modifications. Details.


Shuff’s Special for the M1 Garand and the M1 Carbine   

Your rifle may be fundamentally sound, but may not be aesthetically pleasing, it may need a little extra attention to make it the right rifle for your collection. This special restoration package includes a complete reparkerizing job, and any two of the following options:

  • Re-crown barrel
  • Cartouche on your stock
  • Install and head-space a barrel that you provide
  • Perform 5 lbs trigger job (as described above, M1 carbines don’t get trigger jobs)
