I will post a full review when I get a chance to go out and shoot it in a few weeks. Until then... here's a teaser picture, with the one comment that I think this rifle is the bee's freaking knees. Can't wait to put some rounds through it.

For those interested in what all this rifle encompasses:

http://shuffsparkerizing.com/services/the-mini-g/

My Mini-G started out as a CMP sold barreled receiver with bolt. Receiver was nice, SA, no pitting. 1.08M serial range. Bolt and barrel were both new-in-wrap SA parts from the 50s.

Stock is a DuPage Nutmeg Brown laminate, finish is Shuff's Manganese Park, sling is El Paso Saddelry 1907 leather, and front sight is Smith Enterprise Tritium Stripe.

Enjoy.

Once this ny hysteria and legal crap dust settles ( hopefully with clarification the garand will not be considered an aw and need registration!) I plan on a 308 mini g the choice between a 308 eight shooter and a ten shot 223 seems a no brained- go full bore!

Interesting. I know a dude with some CMP Garands that he is not too happy with because of the beat up conditions. Maybe he would sell me one for a conversion job.

Everything I see is that the M1 won't be included because it doesn't have a detachable magazine.

Man that is AWESOME!!

I recall seeing pics of what some called TANKER GARANDS and thought those looked good too. This one looks much better than those do though. Can't wait to hear more.

Thanks

The mini g is much more refined than the old tankers. The key is reshaping the bend in the op rod properly.
Cmp garands while the supply lasts are going to be your best choice

That's super cool!! What was the turn around time? Did they refinish the stock for you?

Turnaround time was 10 days. I used a brand new laminate stock, so no refinishing necessary.

From what I recall the mini-g is about the same size as an M1 Carbine. There is no 2 inch wide front handguard to worry about.

Well, except for the cost of ammo.....

It depends on what you plan on doing with it, and where you live. Here in the PRNJ we can't have a Carbine unless it's a non military model. In addition the Mini-G would be better for hunting, and it's quite a handy rifle. I wouldn't trust it as a combat arm until several thousand rounds went down range, but to each their own.

Id take the mini G over the carbine id like it in .308 please..I already got the full size Garand..The carbines ARE cool but just not my "cup of tea" I guess plus the ammo is pretty $$$$. Though id not turn down a nice Carbine its not high on the want list..Ive wanted one of the Shuffs Mini's for years now but I wanted the "original" full size first/ got that last year..

From what I've seen 30 carbine is running about the same as .223.
