How We Reassemble The Feed / Action Assembly The M1 Garand

When we have the bolt and the rear part of the receiver properly lubricated we turn our attention to putting the bolt back in place.

To do so simply angle the bolt about 5 degrees counter clockwise, tilt it upwards about 10 or so degrees and then starting with the rear of the bolt I gently jiggle it into place.

When the rear of the bolt slips into the receiver you can then drop the front down. Slide the entire bolt assembly back and forth to assure that it moves freely and to confirm that the orientation is right. The bolt should slide easily in the greased wells and it should rotate into the locked position when moved forward.

If the bolt is in place correctly begin the process of installing the Operating Rod.
