Are the century M1 Garand receivers any good. Where else can you get Garand receivers for a good price?

Someone had posted a link of the Fulton Armory page that listed numerous problems with the century guns. Let me see if I can find it. Basically, stay away from them. Haven't heard anything about IMI ones, but they are a little pricey. found it. [url]www.fulton-armory.com/CAI-TI.htm[/url] they have another for lithgow recievers. [url]www.fulton-armory.com/lithgow-TI.htm[/url] If you want a Garand, do what I'm doing and join a CMP affiliated club, shoot a match and get it from [url]www.odcmp.com[/url]

CMP is the way to go.

Yeah that would be nice but DANG! I'll have to join FRED'S gunclub to get in. Nobody here know's what CMP means! I'd hate to have to drive from Ky. to N.C. for club meetings! TF

If you can find the Kentucky state rifle and pistol association your covered. Jumping throught those hoops is better than paying 700-1000 for a nice USGI, and is WAY better than having el-cheapo blow up in your face.

I have a CMP(Civilian Marksmanship Program)www.odcmp.com M1 and like it very much. If you are a vet all you need is your DD214 and you qualify. That's what I did but if you're not a vet the qualificaion is easy and doensn't cost very much. Most clubs have a Garand shoot, among other much fun meets. CMP sells the service grade for $500. Best money I ever spent! Check it out you will like the program. Good Shooting - Popeye

I've had a CAI receivered M-1 for some months now. Mine works fine. They get slammed a lot in the varius forums, but they also seem to sell quite a few of them. Would I have preferred a CMP M-1? Yes, but this one was $200 cheaper. For my purposes it suits me. Also should point out that CMP Garands can have "issues" as well. Remember they're pushing 60 years old and most of them led a pretty hard life.

dont buy century,if you want to be thrifty by a dane from the cmp its 400.00

Price is NOT the issue here, nor is support for CMP or anything else. Look at the Fulton pictures very carefully and read all the text. The issue is whether or not you get your face blown off. Fultons FAQ link to rewelded receivers has made me very leery of ever firing a poor quality Santa Fe BM-59 I bought years ago before I knew better. It was only $450 when real Beretta-made BM-59's were running $800 and up. The issue is getting your face blown off.
