The M1 Garand for anyone asking without knowing its designation.

I am on my 3rd. I've had 1 H&R, and 2 Springfields. All 3 were excellent shooters. Do you know the throat and muzzle erosion #'s ? Also, check for excess slop on the gas/op-rod assembly.

That is, I'm assuming you mean the rifle isn't grouping very well.

Correction to my misleading post. 
 
I have never shot one that wasn't spot on regardless.
 
I was just wondering if someone ever had one that couldn't shoot.

Mine is a Winchester and it is on the high end regarding headspace. It groups fine, though.

I've had a couple that wouldn't shoot; one had a shot out throat and by shot out...the gage fell all the way in.  The other had a loose fitting stock.
 
One thing about the M1's...if it has a good barrel (including crown) a glass bedding job and a few tweaks here and there the groups can really shrink.
 
One thing though, if the front hand guards and gas cylinder have been tightened up it's wise to pick the rifle up by the main stock or sling, not by the hand guards or gas cylinder.

I restocked one for a CO.. It was a Springfield that was reimported  from Korea by Bluesky. The muzzle was worn out; you could stick a 30-06 round in the muzzle all the way to the case neck. The best I could get was a group the size of a dinner plate at 25yds.
