It is being held ransom at a gun shop, $1200+ tax, OUCH....


Nice late model M1, SA, not all parts match, it has a few non SA small parts. The wood is OK, darker stock than the handguards.

Action is smooth as friggen butter.

I offered $800 which I thought was afair price, and he did say make me a offer, but he said no, I might go around $1100..

I walked out, said by....

Sounds more like you didn't pay a king's ransom in return from freeing it from the rifle rack it will sit on for the next 5 years until the prices catch up with it...


ETA: Not saying that $800 isn't an okay price, more referring to the $1200 that it's listed at...

$800 was a fair price, he should have took it, last one I paid $800 for was a schweet SA [SN 16230xx] in excellent condition with a fab SA 44 BBL in a new Boyd stock and with the GI one also. All parts were SA and Correct save for a few. Shoots better then I do.

He should have taken it, go in with 8 100s and see what he'll do in a few weeks.

Why not CMP?

Only 900 for Corrects.

My 5 are beautiful and worth every penny.

My 4 Service grades were only $550 and are almost as nice as the Corrects
a little steam and they will be equal except not fully matching parts.

All steel seems nearly new.

So see if you qualify for CMP and get one before they are gone.

My USGI field grade has all Sprinfield metal with HRA rear sights. 568*** reciever places it born in early 42, barrel/etc from other times. It's been through Red River Arsenal for depot work. Walnut stock, but birch front handguard some dings and gouges. 425 from CMP, arrived at my door last week.

Was that a place in Ada? If so, I have seen it and I liked it too.

It was around the first of the summer. Does it still have the nice leather sling on it? I tell you what, liberating that Garand is going to take a lot of work LOL!

If "late model" means new production SA Inc. - NO WAY!!! Go with CMP for $500.

CMP Service grade is the way to go.

No, late as in...5.9 serial numer range.

Our Gander Mountain has on that is in pretty bad shape. You can't see hardly any rifling in the barrel. No finish left on the metal and the stock is not much better. I can't remember the exact price, but it is between 8-900.

I am certainly in agreement here. Some gun shops will buy from CMP for $550 for a Service Grade than sell them for $1,000.

Do everything you can to get hooked up with these guys, it is well worth it.
