anyone done an M1 GARAND build with a m98?
im considering doing an M1 GARAND build with a model 98 - but want to look as realistic as possible ... ive secured one to use as a model - and a cheap airsoft to canibalize for cosmetic parts - but id be interested to see if anyone has done one and has advice .... the stock i have chosen is an arsenal refinished take off , and should look correct

I have been attempting one with a Tippmann 68 Carbine. I was having issues with moving the trigger group back and slightly down. I got the stock from a Machine gun shoot. Here is a picture of it at this point... However i do remember someone on the MCB that had made one from a 98c. It looked good, i think they used a spoon for the trigger guard.

do you plan to add all the handguards , ect??

- thats a M1 carbine stock - not a GARAND

I did not plan on adding the hand guards... Thought it may be easier to work on and switch barrels without all the extras on

i plan to "hollow" mine out and use them - just look too cool - im also using a 21 inch jj ceramic barrel

Sounds cool! Cant wait to see it! I also have an extra stock like the one in my picture above if you need one, we could work something out.
