First, some warnings

This page is not an authoritative description of how to assemble an M1 Garand rifle.

This page is nothing more than my notes about how I did that. You should not attempt this. You will undoubtedly damage your rifle, destroy your workshop, kill yourself, and do untold other harm up to and including unleashing Gozer and bringing on the apocalypse.

OK, that's enough lawyer repellent.
