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!
