POST POST POST! i want to mod it to make it better, and i want to make the kit that the real garand could have! Bayonet, Rifle Grenade, SniperScope, Flash Hider and an added strap.

COD freak alert! Actually, funny thing about the rifle grenade...

barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-19

Where did freak come from? i don't call them rifle grenades now. they are noob tubes. Anyway, the CoD race is a very sensetive being that consists of me, and a few other close PS3 buddies...

DrWeird117 (author)barrax2009-07-19

Not "freak", it's an American term for "lover" of something. LOL! Noob tubes...

barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-19

Yeah. I'm not american I don't see most of their terms....

DrWeird117 (author)barrax2009-07-19

I know, you're British.


barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-20

Why lucky? I, mean, I agree with you in all respects, but why do you think we are lucky to be brits!

smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-20

barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-20

have you joined my club?

I made a group a couple of months ago called British club, after I said that same phrase (join the club, I'm British too) to someone else!

Group's here:

Smasher555 (author)barrax2010-11-02

Your British? Didn't you have an M200 Intervention video? You didn't sound Brit.

DrWeird117 (author)barrax2009-07-20

I'm American. :( Plus the UK is a beautiful place!

builder968 (author)DrWeird1172009-08-17

You're sad about being American? That makes me sad :(.

DrWeird117 (author)builder9682009-08-18

Why not be sad?

barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-21

:( you deserve a place in my top ten i think...

DrWeird117 (author)barrax2009-07-21

Aw, thanks, barrax! I really appreciate that!

barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-21

thats cool, bro.

smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-20

smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-19

i want credit from it if yu go ahead and make it.

barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-19

Yeah, of course. i wouldn't rip a gun from someone and not mention them (with my knowing)

smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-20

thanks mate.

seriously, it's been a long while from that one comment in it where you said i'll post it. it's 2010 now. just post the freaken gun

barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-20

It's cool, but i thought of a better idea (See my other comment)

smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-20

ive just made the most amazing shell ejecting springfield that when you pull the bolt action forward it clicks as if the bullet is ready to fire .!!!!!!! i will send you a pic when im finished..i sorta made it out of my m1 garand but i had made 2 so ive still got one of my m1 garands left if you get me.... lol

barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-20

thats cool bro... Make sure you get me a pic (and a vid if possible) If it fires, post, even if the range is less than 15 ft (unless you can make it higher)


smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-18

i will but itl take time,1 cos ma camara is bust,2 cos ill have to braek it up and make it again, and 3 cos im a weeeee bit lazy but i will do it........:)

barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-18

(whoops, i deleted the other one because i forgot something) does it have the real action of a Garand? (clip flips out at end of the magazine, and needs to be pushed in from top to reload) Is it SEMI AUTOMATIC?!?!?!

smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-19

you may not like this but its a model :( im not good at makin firing guns

barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-20

If you post I will make what I was planning to make in my original!

Semi automatic, true Garand reload GOODNESS!

*** In fact, let us collaborate!

you make the instructable, then after you finish, go to share, and click add member, barrax. If you do that, then I will be able to see your instructable, build it, and mod it to fire, then I could change some of the steps to make it fire.

It would still show up as your gun, but I could put in the intro that I modded it to fire...

builder968 (author)smithinator2009-07-19

If you post, I could make a simple trigger mech...

~KGB~ (author)2010-06-15

Killer~SafeCracker (author)2010-01-05
