Re: M1 Garand (camp fire)

The closest we came was the interstate bridge collapse in MPLS that killed quite a few.
I`m wondering if that horseman made it across that gap.

Re: M1 Garand (camp fire)

Thanks fellers, Gunny there`s a flea market next weekend so i`ll check there and see if i can find some.
Ya can use the kind with the four sided tops which are more common, this drill takes a 1/2 inch shank so ya have to cut off the top on those and weld a 1/2 inch shank on as seen in the picture.
