And yes I do mean factory new and unfired condition with matching numbers. Not a dent scratch or a pit on them. Not a reproduction, Original assembly fresh out of the unopened crates kind of condition.

All ads go to the EE and you must post a price.

The CMP will be auctioning off a few that showed up in the batch of Greeks.. they are still in the silver wrap from the maker.. more than likely, they will fetch $3K and up.

my M1 from the DCM (now CMP) was NIB, and I think the going price back then was $400


sigh, she's not "new" anymore, but I have taken good care of her (SA, cir'53 IIRC)

Are the new ones Springfield Armory offers condidered a "reproduction"? I see them at the shows for around $1K.

Are new SA ones considered reproductions?

Absolutely.

If you managed to buy a new one for $650.00, how much would you sell it for?

I just got a Greek H&R barrel date 3-55. Not new in box but by all reasonable standards, a brand new rifle. This rifle was never issued. It is becoming clear to me that I really lucked out on this thing. My name is Patriot, and I'm a Garandaholic.

I would gladly pay $1300 for a new one from Fulton Armory - they just don't get any better. Forget the Springfield Armory knock-offs.

Why would you do that when you can have one of these for $500.00 less?

Well, guy I work with paid $450+20.95 Shipping from CMP. He ordered an HRA Greek SG and got a brand new rifle. The thing was stored and that's it. Not rebuilt, brand new still in cosmoline. To say I was a bit jealous is an understatement. See pictures here. Look on the right side. MarkMars is the guys name.

At some point, it was disassembled because it came with a complete, brand new SA trigger group. Everything else is HRA.

I would advise anyone looking for a garand to get one from the CMP.


But there are some people that prefer to see what they are getting and get the springfield inc. That being said, I have an excellent condition correct HRA for sale. (shamless plug)


m1 for sale
Link Posted: 9/27/2004 9:57:21 AM EST
Fro, that is a nice looking stick! If any of you are looking for a good M1 think about it for a minute. A really nice 'correct' M1 is worth a pretty penny.

You can get (or could get) Greek Rack grades for $300 plus shipping, shootable but they are pretty rough. I got one this past July and after careful examination of its condition decided to make it into a "pretty rifle". You see my RG was cosmeticly UGLY, but mechanixcally sound. I had a good armorer recrown the barrel, and I wanted accuracy so I had NM sights installed, a NM trigger job and the gas system tuned. The rifle was re-Parkerized and glasbedded into a new AA FAncy walnut stock which I personally tung oil finished (20 days worth). It is a beauty, but all totalled I have close to $1,200 into it. Now if I had to sell it It would probably fetch only part of that. But to me it is what I wanted in this M1, a quasi presentatiion M1. Now if had come with a decent walnut stock I may have claened it up a bit and left it 'original'. But to each his own. This is my second Garand.

I've looked at the CMP, Trouble with paperwork requirments.

Only local range with shooting that qualifies is members only, Already called them. Membership fee for the range and such isn't bad @ $75 a year.

But some of their other requirments I just cannot meet. Must attend so many meetings per year which would be fine except they are on 1st and 3rd tuesdays at 7pm.

I work second shift.

Range open for shooting limited during what would be my free time when I could shoot. I have a 2 hour window per weekend evening.

All of their comp shooting is done on a day each month when I cannot spare the time.

blah
bhal
blah

Of course all of this sucks since the Range is only about 6 miles away.

All you need to buy an M1 from DCM is:

1) join Garand Collectors Association, $25 and you will get some good information as well.
2) have a CCW permit (doesn't everyone?).
3) be a US citizen with a valid birth certificate.

Years ago you HAD TO have proof of shooting two High-power matches, get finger-printed, etc. I got my first M1 under these rules 10 yers ago. Process is much simpler now. If you want one you will jump through the hoops.

If this is too much for you, then you can pay a few hunderd dollar premium at a gunshow for one that somebody bought and now decided to sell.

You can also meet the CMP requirements by joining the NRA and obtaining a C&RFFL.

The shooting requirement is waived if you have a C&R FFL, and joining the Garand collectors assoc. will met the club requirement. Everyone should be a member of the NRA anyway, but I meant to say the Garand Collectors Assoc. instead of NRA. Brain fart- sorry.
A C&RFFL is worth having by itself just for the discounts from Midway and Brownells. The C&RFFL is $30.00 for 3 years and the Garand Collector membership is $25.00. Send those and your birth certificate and buy a Garand, '03 or '17.

They are trying to make it easy. I think the results of the matches were either hard to obtain or a lot of matches didn't print results in the format the CMP wanted.
I have an M1 Garand that should be here Monday. Yeah right! like UPS is ever on time, but it will be here this week.
Everyone should have at least 1 Garand.
