What brand / type of grease and what type (s) of oil do you use on your Garand. I've wanted one since I was a kid, and finaly found a nice shooter I could afford. Now I've got to learn how to care for it.

Thanks for your advice.

One thing nice about Tetra is a little goes a long way.

If you don't already have it Scott Duff's book on the Garand is well worth getting. It covers lub, disassembly, etc everything you need to take care of the Garand.

Call or e-mail the CMP for their "Read This First" booklet. It has very clear photos, descriptions and a bunch more on the M1 Garand. It only costs $3.00. Well worth it.

Also check this link for the on-line field manual on the Garand.

Thanks guys. Sorry it took a while to get back to say thanks. I really appreciate the links to the great sites. For me, a picture is worth a thousand words, and all the links have great pictures and good reading.

Grease on all the parts subject to high speed friction . Gun oil on all the rest of the metal . Boiled linseed oil ( BLO , which can be diluted with turpentine ) on the wood .

Exception , the gas cylinder & plug ; and gas piston are stainless steel & left dry .

A pound container of white lithium grease ( generic for Luberplate ) , from the auto parts store may last a ligetime .

God Bless
