It's spelled Garand, as in John C. Garand
Tankers are nothing but bubba made hacked up pieces of junk, that often don't operate properly or reliably. No "tanker" that you will find/be able to afford is original military (the military only made about 10 trial guns, and scrapped most of them).

OUCH. That hurts. Mine operates properly and reliably. I don't think I'm a "bubba". Mine is in .308 with the conversion parts bought from Numrich. I don't think they are "bubba" either.

I like it.

Try this, has some basic info. http://www.scott-duff.com/t26.htm

http://www.warbirdscustomguns.com/M1%20Garand.htm

So why are you pursuing a Tanker Garand rather than a nice Ljungman or M96?

Red face DGR built M1 Garand 'Tanker'. . .

Just my humble opinion, but I think Dean Dillabaugh builds one of the best M1 'Tanker' rifles out there. Below is mine:

The OP here, Jenssweden, finally got his "tanker". He put it on another post, hopefully he's going to come back here. I believe he had his done by Herbert Werle.

Call it what you will, there's "bubba" versions, and then there's well done conversions as most informed people know. Herbert Werle is an outstanding German gunsmith, of the old world variety; he once worked as a depot maintenance gunsmith for the US Army, no small qualification. He now does extreme mods for P08 Lugers and M-1 Garands and I'm about to have him do the "tanker" conversion on my M-1, don't care for comments on whether it should be done or not. Herberts work is proven; I would have mine done by Fulton, Dean or Tim Shufflin if I weren't living in Germany, but Herbert is every bit as good as those guys, maybe better, but that's all opinion stuff.

Herbert specializes in creating a Drückjagd carbine version of the M-1. the "Drückjagd" is a type of hunt here in Europe/Germany where short barreled medium caliber/cartridge rifles reign supreme and the M-1 with short barrel is perfect; quick follow up shots are really necassary. However, my standard M-1 is just too heavy and long for this:



But this will be perfect for the traditional Drückjagd (don't get excited, it's a photoshop creation, Herbert hasn't even gotten his hands on it yet):





I don't care about the supposed sacriledge of this and yes it's an orginal 1942 issue Springfield, the year my granddad was captured by the Japanese. It will never be sold, never shoot in IMA matches or anything traditional like that, will never perform reenactment duty; it stays with me 'till the end, and I need it to be a little different than it is for actual use (hunting and recreational shooting). Loss of power is too minimal to even be a consideration.

I have a question for the experts like Tim or whomever. Since the original Garand had issues with slow burning powders, how does this affect the carbine conversion? Must you still use the faster burning powders and M-1 safe ammunition? I use Mcccan's adjustable gas plug and M-1 safe ammo, but am thinking to be safe, I will need to use the adjustable gas plug always afterwards. Just kind of curious, though.

For the record, I'm retired US Army and live in Germany (still work for the Army though).

I Know only one guy anywhere, who has a good GI one. He got it from the DCM around 1969. Back way before it was the CMP. This same guy carries a range data book with him to the range, as large as a Scrap book. He has every target he ever shot at with that rifle in that book. All SR-1 type targets, and all are nearly identical in grouping.
The only wild card that rifle ever produced is the first (cold bore ) shot is a flyer that's always low to the right, all other shots after that one are right in the black, always.
Never had anything done to it after he got it, still the same internals and barrel. I myself amoung others at the range, always pause and watch that old timer when he's down there with that old Tanker. I think in 1969 he only paid what it cost now a days for a tank of gas...LOL.
He's been offered Plenty (in the thousands) last I heard and he still wont sell it to nobody.... After all why would he sell it, that's his babby.

I would consider a Tim Shufflin "mini-g" 16" garand. It's an awesome brush gun.
