M1 Garand Gas Plug Wrench

Quick Overview

The M1 Garand is a semi-automatic rifle that is chambered for the .30-06 Springfield cartridge and served as the first standard issue semi-automatic service rifle for the U.S. Military from 1936 to 1957, at which point it was replaced by the M14. You probably already knew that though, considering the fact that it is also an American icon and known the world over for its unique design. Though when General George S. Patton calls something "the greatest battle implement ever devised," it probably does a thing or two for your reputation.


Anyway, back to the rifle. The action of the M1 Garand is based around a gas operation system that ports excess high-pressure gases from a discharged cartridge into the gas cylinder located beneath the barrel. Within the cylinder, the gases push a long-stroke piston to the rear of the rifle where it manipulates an operating rod that engages the rotating bolt that cycles the rifle.


Considering the importance of the gas operation system to an M1 Garand, it is probably a good idea to keep it clean, ensuring a reliable cycle after each discharge. In order to clean the gas cylinder, you will need to remove the gas plug. And in order to remove the gas plug, you will need Keepshooting.com's new M1 Garand gas plug wrench.


The M1 Garand gas plug wrench is now available for $14.97.

Details

As noted, the action of the M1 Garand is based around a gas operation system in which the high-pressure gases that are resultant from a discharged cartridge are ported into a gas cylinder located beneath the barrel. With high-pressure gases constantly flowing through the gas cylinder, an eventual buildup of fouling within the cylinder is inevitable, which necessitates the ability to clean it. The gas plug is a small metallic plug that not only prevents the ported high-pressure gases from escaping the gas cylinder but also offers access to the cylinder itself. Unfortunately, the design of the gas plug necessitates the use of a special tool for removal. Fortunately, Keepshooting.com has that tool.

The M1 Garand gas plug wrench is a small metallic wrench designed specifically for the removal of the M1 Garand gas plug from the gas cylinder. Its unique head shape fits perfectly into the recess of the gas plug and allows for a hassle-free removal of the gas plug. And because the wrench fits perfectly into the recess, there is virtually no chance of marring the gas plug.

Another cool feature of the M1 Garand gas plug wrench is the small hole in the handle end of the wrench. This hole provides the ability to hang the wrench from a peg hook, making it easily accessible in any garage, gun room or workshop.

    I always hated using a large flat bladed screwdriver to take the gas plug off my M1 Garand. Those days are gone now that I have this great little wrench! The handle is thick enough that you will never be able to put enough torque on it by hand to break it and the driver fits the gas plug very well. A great investment for anyone that owns this beautiful, old battle rifle!

    Being an avid Garand rifle person this is a good deal. I especially like the hole on the end of the tool that allows me to hang it on a peg hook.
    Fits the gas plug with good contact with no extra slop that could mar the gas screw/plug.
