The recent range trip had me drag the FrankenGarand out for another test. Ammunition is getting a little scarce with me overdue to acquire a proper quantity of 7.62 surplus, so I had to make do with the same ammunition as before (American Eagle 150gr). Concentrating more on the accuracy of the rifle than it’s basic operation the rifle seemed to print respectable 2″ groups, and with a little adjustment of the sights was plopping the rounds pretty much exactly where I wanted them. The last string in particular was impressive, with the rounds falling within about 1″ of each other.
The FrankenGarand was not the focus of this trip, and I’ll have to make a trip dedicated to nothing more than putting 100 rounds of so through the rifle, gauging its accuracy (and mine for that matter) properly. For now I am satisfied that the rifle is reliable and reasonably accurate, not bad for a home-built rifle, eh?
