I'm thinking that it makes sense to make the gun look like an M1 rather than an M1A1. I need to replace the M1A1 bolt that comes with it with an M1 bolt (already got one from IMA) for safety reasons. Also, the receiver says "M1" on it. So I might as well go ahead and try to create a replica M1. I know that the L sights were used on late 1928A1's and on early M1's, but were the protected sights ever installed on M1's? I really prefer the protective style.) Thanks.

Don’t forget the paddle style controls and ’28 style mag catch.
To really look right, these need to have the receiver corners radiused and some other cosmetic work.

My WH M1 goes out to PK today for all of these touches, as well as for the receiver modification that he mentions above and other work to bring the gun to GI specs.
This will entail another four month wait, but I know it will be beautiful when PK returns it.
