Why get 1 new Garand, when you could get several CMP garands. Or you can buy me the IH Garand I have always wanted

I won't post my bonus and raise for last year. It would most certainly give you a coronary, and I can't have that on my conscience......

Big +1 on CMP. The new ones don't have a soul.

By all means go w/CMP for your Garand. Get an '03A3 and a 1917 Enfield or two while you're at it.
sigh.

The old Garands are cool, but I'm not interestedin soul. I'm picky and want new. The last gun show I went to "soul" was going for a hefty premium.

I agree on the unions, I've never been belonged to one. I grew up in a union house (my father was a teamster for 32 years) in a strong union town and I don't believe in them. They had there place at one time but I think that time has passed.

Sounds like you need a Mil-Tech Garand. Haven't seen one in quite a while. They still around?

Go see John Holbrooke at the next Puyallup gun show, he'll set you up. He's the guy with all the 1911's in the cases that has all their histories (ships they were issued to, battles fought, etc.). He takes CMP garands and and makes them beautiful. I'm very happy with mine.

What is this bonus thing you speak of?

I had Miltech rebuild my Garand. I was having serious functional issues with my Garand (which I had purchased from a pawn shop in Idaho). Sent it to Milttech and they did an outstanding job of rebuilding it. The rifle looks brand new and I've not had a single malfunction since (1000rds).

If you're looking for a real piece of history, then Miltech isn't the best option. They use only original recievers, but the barrels are Wilson match grade. This isn't an issue unless you're looking at collecter value.

Miltech offers a great product, and I have no reservations about recommending them. They're kind of expensive, but you won't be disappointed.

Here's their website:

Anyway, that's my $.02.

+EleventyBillion for the CMP!

The high end of what you pay the CMP for one (Excepting the rare collecter stuff they have) is the low end of what you'll see on the open market..

Go for the CMP deal man, and get two.....

Were the prices on the website for rebuilding yours, or for ordering one from them...? My Garand shoots great, but some hack "sporterized" before I bought it. hat present to myself decades ago.

No. I had to call and talk to them. The cost was around $850 in 2002.

I checked out miltec and felt the pants getting a little tight. Looks like they do beautiful work. The gun I got my eye on is 1082.00 out the door. I would like to have an old one but I don't want to mess around with getting one fixed up. I have been seeing things on this board thats it's taking many months to get one from CMP. I am a NRA member but I don't shoot comptetion. Been there done that (trap shooting) and its no fun for me.
The last 2 guns I bought used spent more time in the gunsmiths hands than mine. No more of that crap. I really don't even plan on shooting this one that often, just once in awile when I need to hear that "TING" & I like smallbore (read pussy) recoil.

Thanks for the info.
