Who does garand rebuilding for a decent price? I'm planning to order up a rifle from CMP and would like to have it given the once over, bead blasted and reparked. I'll buy some new wood to throw on as well. The bore condition is not terribly important as long as it's not totally trashed so hopefully I wont need to go with the expense of rebarrelling. I want to wind up with a new looking decent shooter. I dont shoot matches but would like to be able to tag clay pigeons at 100yds or so and have a nice rifle to do it with. Something that can go on the gun rack and be displayed with pride. Restored to look military new or as close to it as possible.

Any reccomended shops to do the work?

For everything you plan on doing to it, the only thing left is what you claim to not care about, the ME/TE.

I CMP hand-picked mine strictly by ME/TE, and it is a shooting sonofagun. We shot clays/clay bits with her today, hell someone tied a string downrange and the guys were making that jump with it.

I know mine is a great shooter, and a $120 stock set and a repark and she is good as new. I would personally advise you to rethink your barrel thoughts. They guys at CMP were calling the ones with higher ME/TE numbers "muzzleloaders".

Good Luck!

So the barrels are crap? Damn, what's a rebarrel run?

I've got no experience with CMP rifles, how do you go about the hand pick and such?

Should I be looking to spend a few extra bucks on the Field grade over the rack grade?

Try not to be too hard on me here, it'll be my first experience with the M1.

Warbird does great work. He redid my Polytech with all USGI parts. I love it.

Here is his link

I would go with a Field Grade AT LEAST. Best bet is to go with a Service Grade. If you want a Rack Grade to meet your criteria, I wouldn't get one unless you can pick it out at the North Store.

A rebarrel will run you about $250 depending on barrel. Ted Brown is in Oregon and has a very good rep. You can rebarrel in 30-06 or .308. Best thing is decide what you want to use it for and build accordingly.
