i've never liked these until i saw one at my grandpa's funeral a couple months ago..anyway i would now like to get one and have a laminated stock put on it like the one i saw. what kind should i get and how much do they go for?..i've heard stuff about CMP, and bad stuff about century arms...i don't really care about a collector, i want something decent that i can fix up and make it look good but still be able to shoot safely. anyone?

CMP is a good way to go, you'll have to join a club though, even if you're a vet. The Centuries are something else. Pretty nasty but for the price? Have it checked out by a competent gunsmith first IMHO. Springfield has them out now, more expensive but awesome. You'll pay for anything other than a Century, upwards to a grand and over. Shotgun News has some around, different manufacturers. Maybe buy a receiver and a kit if your up for that kind of work. You won't be sorry...the Garands are to me, the Crown Jewel of Semi Auto MBR's.

Century BAAAAAAAAD!!!!!! You no buy! Go to www.fulton-armory.com and look around (they did a technical inspection of a Century). Also go to www.gunandknife.com and go to their garand forum.
