    M1 Springfield Mil receiver barrel suggestion

    Looking for a replacement new barrel for a M1 '06 I have looked around some and am looking for an opinion of who was happy with XYZ manufacture. The rest of the rifle is in great condition . The barrel has been replaced before and the owner was shooting corrosive cartridges in it and never cleaned properly.

    Thanks BIll

    It's been 5 years ago now when I re-barreled 5 M1s with Criterion barrels that I picked up on sale. They perform very well. Odd thing is, I can't remember who I bought them from, but probably Midway or GPC. Doesn't matter at this late date. But as far as I know Criterion is still in business.
    I chambered them with a pull through reamer from Brownell's.

    Thanks for the reamer tip! Found their web site and CMP has them for 190$. Best price so far.

    Criterion is a good barrel actually the button rifled division of Krieger barrels. I have a garand with a medium heavy douglas cm barrel on it that was a real shooter. .308 Chambered 1-10 twist. Kriegers are good and contoured so the shoulders can be fitted as needed.

    https://www.ammogarand.com/m1gabaus.html. I just installed one two weeks ago, installation was stress free, dimensions spot on. Shoulder timing and cylinder fit I would call perfect to (these) parts. Only have 64 down pipe but there were in a little circle at fifty. I have had pull through chamber reamer set for many years and they ain't any cheaper now. Proper tools and experience a BIG BIG plus here, I do not know your circumstances but if you do not have these please search out. Usually a buck to a buck and a quarter you can have installed and chamber cut.

    I'm pricing for a customer that comes into the shop. I let the young gunsmith do all the machine work it's all his stuff not mine.

    I stock the Shelf with cartridges. Work on older firearms prefer muzzleloaders. Diagnose peoples troubles when their firearm can't group or shoot properly. Spend a lot of time researching looking for older parts.

    Criterion was founded in response to demands of rifle builders and firearms manufacturers for quality button rifled match grade barrels at a reasonable cost. Initially a division of Krieger, Criterion is now completely independent with a separate facility, personnel, and ownership.

    Criterion or Liberty

    Criterion links are already listed above so here is one for the liberty https://shop.saternbarrels.net/produ...nd-replacement

    I have used Criterion on other calibers with excellent results the same applies to Saterns' Liberty line.

    when I shot out the last barrel on my h & r. I put a medium weight citadel in 308. it does the job. I went with the navy conversion because at that time 06 brass was hard to find. .308 was every where.

    Not sure, but check with the CMP as they may do the installation for a price. Can't hurt to ask. And they will do it right. If they do the install you won't be out the cost of the tooling $$. Frank

    Ah that's a great suggestion Frank I'll pass it on to the kid who runs the mill/lathe.

    Thanks to all who posted links and history on the barrel makers. I save them all

    With /so many/ standard Garands out there already (and complete SG's @ $730 shipped), if I was rebarreling one I'd do it in .308 - a very popular config these days.

    If he plans to shoot as-issued JC Garand matches, keep it chambered for 30-06.

    A lot of replacement barrels would work good I'm sure. I put a VAR Danish on mine a few years ago. Got it off the guy I bought the rifle from. He let me have it very cheap. It shoots great with the 2 or 3 loads that I've tried.

    Most of the M1 barrels need to be bumped up so the sights will be in alignment. This process is not difficult but some care is required so the front sight is in alignment with the receiver. In the Marines we had a jig for changing out barrels on M14 rifles. The same jig would also work on M1 rifles.
