That makes sense,its about the only thing I've not tried. Never had much luck with ICS.


I don't think you're alone. I can tell you that their AK74M is god-awful and I've heard a fair bit about other ICS guns going wobbly. Though someone I know swears by their Galils.
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

For what it's worth, I must have smashed eight hundred rounds or more through mine at Foy. Didn't have a problem with it and I found the gun extremely accurate. Could be a case of pot luck, though.

Try and use .25 bbs wherever possible; it does seem to prefer them and a 7.4v LiPo.

I think mines a duff one,runour has it some of the early ones can be a bit iffy.
I do run .25s and 7.4 lipos on everything as is,but thanks anyway :)
Given up on it now,sent it to Firesupport as I was pretty close to getting the Stihl saw out!

Hi all, newbie here. I pick up my ICS M1 tomorrow and I am wondering what batteries ya'll are using?

I spoke to a retailer and they informed me their 8.4v 3700 mAh large type battery will fit. I've heard that the large type batteries do not fit as well as they are telling me.

I ask this as I still have not got the bottle to use a Lipo.

Large type batteries should fit in the M1 stock, though my preference would be to use lipos every time (personal preference)

S&S rubber bayonets fit ICS Garands a treat.

Good to know the bayonets fit, sadly my Garand is back at the supplier once again as I'm still having mag issues :(

Hello guys. I'm looking to join the club but am not sure whether to buy a shoot and scoot or ICS garand. Can anyone tell me how these guns compare against each other?
Regards,

Ralph

I just checked out S&S' website for the M1 and the product has since been discontinued, so unless you want to pick up one second hand it's the ICS product. Full wood and metal, 400fps job.

Shows how out if date I am, their archive is full of beauties which if you'd asked I would have said they still did.

To be honest it's just that a sns garand has come up in the market place. I had already looked into the ics garand but the SnS is an m14 conversion so should be a quality gun.

I've put an order in fire an ics garand with fire support (they are doing a 31% discount) and a couple of magazines.

I see people are recommending 7.4v lipos. I already have a few 1300mAh batteries I use for my sten so that should work fine.

Ralph

So, is there any point in upgrading the ics garand at all or does it hold up well as stock?
