I researched this a recently and came to the conclusion ...Fulton Armory Hands Down = USGI Parts, knowledgeable personel, spend a little extra....you'll be glad you did.

Dude do a search for Fulton Armory. You find a lot of discussion here on them.

An SA new Garand will cost like $1100. A FA service grade will cost you like $1000 and is built with all USGI parts and all reparked and pretty.

I have a match Garand from FA and it is my favorite. Gets a lot of attention at the range which was cool at first, now I just want the old salts to leave me alone.

You wont be disapointed with a Fulton gun. Man their working on a .308 AR. I already have about 4 rifles on my list, that might be 5.

lets know what you decide. with pics to.....

Can you only buy FA rifles off their site or are there other sources?

A third and, IMHO, better option than either of the other two...

groups.msn.com/WestTexasOrdnance/m1garand.msnw

My $800 WTO built 1944 SA Service Grade Garand - Wenig walnut stock, Wilson barrel, and all USGI parts (note:T37FH)


My WTO built 1953 H&R Garand with Wenig maple stock, moly coat, Barnett barrel, NM sights and op rod, and all USGI Parts


My current production SA Bush Rifle with WTO handrubbed Wenig walnut stock


Clayton is refurbing a .308 Garand Tanker for me at the moment, and recently handrubbed a new Wenig stock for my M1 Carbine...

He's the best kept "secret" in the gun world, again, IMHO...

Nice Rocket, but where are those from?

They are Fulton M14s with the Sage EBR. I have one on order. Can't wait to get it!

I have a SA M1A "Loaded" model. It has a NM barrel, NM sights, etc. I am very pleased with this rifle and would not trade it for anything.

I tend to agree, I was close to ordering a Fulton, but when I called them a month or two ago it was going to be the end of the year before I would see the gun, I did not want to wait... I opted for an SA NM M1A, so far its been fine...I went the CMP route for my Garand, USGI Service Grade...
