Ics m1 garand - now with added ping
Hi guys, my first post on here and probably some of you might not like this from an authenticity point of view but others might be interested so thought I would share.
I recently bought an ics m1 garand and its a lovely bit of kit with kit and with great performance but its a shame it’s missing the iconic ping noise, so i set about trying to find a way of recreating it.
I bought a sound recording box from talking products and uploaded a mp3 clip for the famous ping. Originally the idea was to house it in the stock with a light sensor to activate on removing the mag but without boring out more space in the stock this would be difficult and i did want to get too drastic on my new rif.
I found on epic militaria they sell m1 garand sniper stock pouches so i gave that a punt and managed to hide the device in a sniper stock pouch. It is press button activated and i can reach it by pressing the the leather pouch with my little finger so i dont have to change my firing position. I might not keep it on there all the time but just wanted to share it with you for those looking for that ping 🙂
