Ronaldo Olive sent us these photos of an M1 Garand rifle confiscated by the Military Police of Rio de Janeiro State. It features a Sage International M1GALCS/PMRI stock (but with a different AR-15 stock and pistol grip). An EOTech scope is mounted on top.

Thanks Ronaldo.

    isn't that stock/receiver for like a BM-59 mag fed .308 Garand variant that grew up to be an M-14

    So after you add all that stuff to it you still have an 8 shot rifle. A heavy 8 shot rifle. I think it is off the scale in terms of coolness, but it is a failure in terms of practicality. I'll keep my DCM M1 the way it came to me from the Army.
