I saw this mentioned on the GD forum...what would you suggest in building less expensive yet GI model Garand? There's a gunshow coming in 2 weeks...they will have Garands there for $1,500 to $800..I do not want to spend that kind of money. What do you suggest? I would to to have a 1940's receiver...if possible.

I would suggest www.odcmp.com see the M1 rifle sales page. For as little as $350.00, you can get a genuine G.I. M1 that was returned from Denmark.

Building really won't save you too much money in the end, besides the part kits are very very hard to find these days and the only website that offers them is about $200 over priced and will sit on your order for months at a time before processing it.

FAC has barreled receivers, or they did two weeks ago (Winchester's if memory serves me) for $150 or so. Then you would need the parts kit. Wholesale Guns has "very nice condition" parts kits for $219. For about $400 you would have everything you needed w/ a spare barrel.

Hope that helps.
