CUSTOM BUILT M1 GARANDS
Only Dean’s Gun
Restorations (DGR) offers each customer the opportunity to select their
type and finish of stock sets, (Maple, Bastogne Hybrid Walnut, American
Walnut and Claro & T-1 or T-2 finishes) has the industries best Mil-Spec
Parkerizing, uses new springs, uses to spec or rebuilt op rods, and new
stock & hand guard metal when building/rebuilding an M1.
Selecting your own stock
set is not only fun, it guarantees you no one else will have exactly the
same! Instead of your M1 being a “cookie cutter” production line
(all the same type) M1; with DGR it will be a “one off”, (no other
like it exists). You can either select from a few stock sets we try to
keep on hand or select from photos of blanks before the stock set is cut
by the manufacture. You will now add your own personal touch to your
I (Dean) have been
Parkerizing for 24 years now. I do not believe there is anyone in this
business that produces better Parkerizing and pays attention to detail
like DGR. There is a great deal more to Parkerizing then just getting
“color” but that information is a guarded secret.
The value of new springs
is missed by few and we feel, why perform all the other work and have the
M1 fail because new springs were not installed. Just does not make
sense to me and is border line stupid to use old springs, in my opinion.
Using an in spec or
rebuilt op rod is usually not understood. This is a huge advantage
over others that are willing to use minimal spec op rods which can
dismount from the receiver and/or cause failures with the rifle's gas
system. DGR exceeds military specs when dealing with op rods.
There are accuracy steps
that DGR (trade secrets) makes to assure the best accuracy from your M1.
One of these steps only cost $8 but I never see my competition making this
addition. Plus any accuracy steps we take are John C. Garand match
approved. So if you are looking for a new M1 or wanting your M1
rebuilt, DGR is the only one that can give you a look/quality unequaled by

DGR built M1 tankers with
the original length 18 1/4" new Criterion barrel. Since the late
1960s tankers have been commercially made and all modified parts were
made for the 18 1/4" barrel. That means you can find replacement parts
from other sources. If you deviate from the 18 1/4" barrel you will be
restricted to purchasing replacement parts (op rod, follower rod and
etc.) from a single supplier. This is one reason I decided to only
use the 18 1/4" barrel. The 18 1/4" barrel has always been the
standard length all parts were designed around.
