The Springfield Armory M1 Garand featured a new investment cast receiver and reclaimed GI parts, but also had a new barrel and stock. This was a fine rifle in every respect. It did have a good trigger, and accuracy was good, too. If you want a Garand with a new receiver, this is it.

The Springfield had a milled trigger guard, which had a hole for a cartridge to help take down the rifle. There was a bit less room in it, but it looked somewhat better than the more common stamped guards.
The rifle showed good grain direction in its plain walnut stock. We noticed a green tint to the action, but there were really no problems with this rifle.
