Was looking at a Garand and noticed what looked to have been a little bit of pitting under a re-park job on the rear bottom edge of the receiver.Is this common on a WW11 M1?Is it a terminal thing?

Yes, On some garands it is normal to find a bit of pitting especially if it is a WW 2 or Korea era issue rifle. Combat is hard on men and equipment. Pitting will also show up on guns that have been stored for long periods of time without receiving the propper care due them.

Sure in common, but not terminal.
If its under the wood, no big deal, only you will know.

I have a rifle that is pitted in this way, under the receiver heel and both legs. It functions fine and looks alright while in the wood. No worries.

Same Same on my Garand as well. More than likely it was caused due to precipitation between the stock and the receiver bottom. Not visible unless ya break it down and does'nt hurt the function whatsoever. Have a great day! :) Six Out!
