I have a Springfield Armory M1 Garand serial number 3.29 million from 1944 that I have had for a while now. The barrel is marked SA 11-44, so I am pretty sure it is original to the receiver and isnot worn out by any means. The parts diagram numbers are as listed:
bolt group D28287-12SA
trigger housing D28290-12-SA
hammer C46008-7 SA
Op rod D35382 9 SA
Post WWII rear sight DRC
P proof marks on stock and I think it has faint SA arsenal mark also
The parts that I listed except for the rear sight seem to be correct and SA WWII era. The rifle functions 100% and shoots like a dream, the muzzle passes the bullet test with flying colors but I have no gauges. What would you guys estimate the value on this M1? Thanks in advance.

Depends where you are buying it. Cmp, $595, gun show, $700-900.
Sounds Looks like a nice one.

From what few I see at shows these days I'd say more than $700 and maybe up to $1000 if the wood is real nice.
Depends on how bad you might want to sell and how bad the other guy wants it.........

From what I see, and what you describe, it sounds as if you have a Correct Grade SA. $1000.00 minimum

Yeah, my estimate would be $850 - $1000.

Just my humble opinion
But you are getting LOW BALLED here
you need to go to
here
sign up join it is free
then go to the ASK EACH OTHER forum they will give you a fair opinion of what it is worth
but then again you need to give more details too
a couple of weeks ago a member asked what a trigger group was worth it was worth more and snagged up on the cheap
that is just my opinion

Dog1, myself, and many others here have been collecting and shooting Garands for years. And yes we also hang out over at the CMP forums as well as Jouster. I don't have a clue what Garands go for in Illinois but I do know what they sell for in the South.

YMMV and obviously does.

Thanks for the input folks. I am not looking to sell my M1, I was curious to see what value it may hold. What was stated here is what I thought for the most part.

Especially ones that are a couple expensive parts away from being correct.

I have a all correct Feb 1944 Garand that I put together. Doubt I could get $900.00 and it is "all correct" with original cartouched stock
Sad thing is I could probably get more for it if I parted it out
