I wanted to get a nice gift for my grandfather...so I thought a M1 restored would be nice...FORGET THAT Shhh..er stuff. The prices on those things have gone into space. Can anyone tell me why/how they are worth so much now??? I think it's a nice weapon and will still get it, but my question is why are they so much???

I have seen Garands at gun shows for 500 to 700 for a remanufactured WWII or Korea era rifle.

I saw some real excellent condition garands at a shop here for 700 something.

As posted above, go CMP! http://www.odcmp.com/Services/Rifles/m1garand.htm
It takes a little paperwork and you have to fulfill some requirements, but you can be assured to get a true service grade rifle in issuable condition. For $500, or $400 if you don't mind one that was loaned out to the Danish. No welded recievers or out of spec parts here!
For a good M1 forum go here:

If you really want a nice restored and accurized Garand, Orion7 is one of the best.
Good luck.

Is $800 way too much for a Garand?

I checked one out a gun show this weekend. It looked good to me. $800 is reasonable. If it were an M1A it would cost $1100.
