Garand loose handguard

3471 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Bill
Recieved my cmp danish garand about a month ago. The front handguard is loose, moves front to back about 3/16". Would It be OK to make a shim to go between the gas cylinder and the handguard to prevent the movement? It is so loose it rattles. Rifle shoots good a bout 2" at 100, just want to make it better and keep it as recieved.

thanks rich

I wouldn't. I would build up the ends of the hand guard instead. Some people also drill the end caps (not sure of the proper name) and screw the two together. The only bad thing about this is you can't pick the rifle up by the guard anymore.
