My DGR built rifle. Used mixmaster parts handpicked by me. Dean reparked metal, supplied the Douglas/Barnett military contour barrel, did a JCG Match legal trigger job, fitted and finished the Wenig Extra Fancy Walnut stock set, and assembled the thing. I shoot this one in our club Garand matches.

One more. This is the Danish Service Grade I was shooting in JCG matches before DGR built the other one. A mixmaster with a VAR barrel. The receiver dates to 1940 if I remember right, just after the gas trap serial number range. It shoots nearly as well or as well as the DGR rifle with military ball ammo.

I started with a DCM Garand when you could only get one in a lifetime. All my Garands are from CMP. All but two are Service Grades. The one with the striped walnut stock was built from parts that I accumulated on a CMP receiver. There are several Danish SG's there. There is only one IHC, and 2 Winchesters. The bulk of them are SA with H&R's mixed in. I have a Greek RG that DGR converted to .308 for me, and one Greek SG. The only really unique one I have is an all correct H&R SG.
