I'm new to the forum,and would like to say after looking around, at all the post's that you guy's are alway's right on the money ! That's why I'm coming to you gentleman with a question . I fire a WW2 Garand and often have wondered about slam fires and are they common? I shoot original ammo,not reload's and thankfully, have not had this to happen. I did have the second round, leaving the enbolc to fail to fully chamber, often. The cause was due to the gas chamber screw being loose, of all thing's. I would like some to hear from other Garand shooter's on these matter's and in closeing say, this is the best forum around !
