So I was able to get this one home last month! Estate sale to a Pawn Shop to me, priced like any ordinary nice Garand! It is all original, not messed with or overhauled since issued in January 1945. Appears nearly unfired from the looks inside of it. It was viewed 2000 times over on the CMP forum and no complaints. All correct per Poyer. It was a very lucky find!

Had one just like it except it had a 4 - 45 barrel and a NFR stock. A friend got it through the DCM (pre CSP) in all original condition. Told him I wanted it if he ever sold it, and one day he called.

This one is my lucky find though. It was found at a small show some 20/25 years back in totally original condition. The experts of the day thought two of the internal parts were incorrect, but as it turned out the parts were correct and thankfully I stuck them back just in case. Excellent 8 - 40 barrel and keystone springs.

OOOooo...pre-war rifle!

A garden variety M1 resides here but I love it. A mid-1980s DCM gun being World War II era (6-44) that was rehab'ed before being shipped to me, it mustered out sporting most of it's correct revision parts (including proper revision uncut op-rod), except for the trigger group which is a mish-mash of WWII parts. Post-War sights and gas plug complete the package.









It's seen many seasons of high-power competition on the local level just as it is.
