My FIL gave me a Garand recently and I was looking at being able to shoot commercial 30-06 ammo out of it so that I can use the same ammo as my hunting rifles. Has anyone tried or installed a ported or adjustable gas plug in their M1? Garand gear has the ported one that is supposed to not need adjustments to be able to shoot commercial and various other places have adjustable plugs. Anyone style better than the other?

I've got the Schuster adjustable plug for my IHC. I don't think you can mount a bayonet with any of the adjustable plugs, if that matters to you.

I've shot modern cheap commercial ammo, but I mostly shoot PPU Springfield 30-06 M1 Garand ammo. It's pretty much the cheapest "Garand safe," ammo I've found.
