So, the purists would be horrified, but the gun is basically new and ready for lots of shooting, and is a real, 1943 M1 Garand. I'm happy.
I did something similar, sent them a service grade and told them make it perfect. It's nicer than an unissued one in all ways, mechanically and cosmetically. Not "correct" or original but in my opinion nicer overall
