Depends on how long its legs are and how conditioned it is. Sprinting or marathon?

Sorry if I am missing something here.

Yeah I know there the rarest, but Im one of THOSE people... (I got a IH pickup and a Scout!)

From what I understand, many of the post war M1's were sent elsewhere as well?

CMP is the way to go for the best deals.

At the LGS, it's @650 for the crappiest, rustiest, greasiest Garand

on the planet. Half decent ones start around 900$, and go up

rapidly from there.

IMO, CMP is half as much, because the cost is less for better quality.

Totally agree with you, therewolf.
Here is my last one I got from CMP this past summer. HRA and I requested original wood.

The CMP can be a PITA to deal with, and you'll wait forever.

DGR - Dean's Gun Restorations

DGR builds beautiful rifles like this in about 4 weeks. He is far easier to deal with, and you'll get a much nicer rifle without having to jump through so many hoops. The cost is only slightly more for a standard M1 Garand than what the CMP charges for a similar rifle.

If you live anywhere near Long Island NY the only place to buy one is Orion7.
Orion 7. Note: If you are not seeing the pages below, please update your browser. The older browsers (IE6 and FF4) are too old for the newest standards. | Orion7 – the M1 Garand Specialists. Home to M1Garand.com
The owner, Anthony, is an encyclopedia of Garand knowledge and has very fair prices. Great guy to do business with. He personally shoots every gun and if anything needs repair he does it. He will not sell a gun that does not function correctly.

Never had any problems ordering from CMP but the rifles are taking about 30 days to receive one.

You are one of the fortunate ones. A little over a year ago I placed an order for 3 CMP "Special" M-1 Garands. The order came to a little over $3,000.00, and took me the better part of the day to assemble, per the CMP's instructions. I went to the CMP’s website, downloaded and printed, then filled out the required forms and applications. I went to the bank and got it all notarized. I included proof of membership of a CMP sponsored gun club. I even included current, valid copies of my C&R FFL, as well as my Arizona State CCW license, along with a copy of my drivers license, just to make sure everything went smoothly. I personally took it to the post office and had it weighed to assure I had the proper amount of First Class postage attached, and sent it off to Anniston, Alabama.

I then began the long, drawn out waiting process, which seemed quite unusually long for some reason. Then, I received an E-Mail in my inbox. I was all excited thinking my order had finally moved to the shipping process. Instead I found out that my order was in fact cancelled because, according to them, my background check came up "DELAYED", not "DENIED".

So instead of contacting me and informing me that there was a problem, my order was tossed into a pile on someone’s desk, where it sat for a solid month. Then, it was cancelled. All without so much as a letter, phone call, or E-Mail telling me there was any problem what so ever.

This is where things get screwed up. The CMP makes up it’s own rules in regards to background checks. Under normal conditions, per FBI rules and regulations, if a Federal "Instacheck" comes up "delayed", and the FBI doesn't make any further contact with the seller after the fact, the sale can, and should proceed as normal after 48 hours. It is very common for people to have background checks "delayed" for bogus reasons. The system is very flawed in that regard. The FBI knows this, and that is why the "proceed after 48 hours" rule is in place in case of a "delayed" check.

It is also the reason why I included my C&R FFL, (M1 Garand rifles are included on the ATF Curio & Relic list of weapons), as well as my current, valid Arizona CCW. You are required to go through a much more stringent background check for both with the FBI as well as the ATF requiring fingerprinting, than you are for a simple firearm purchase. No matter because the CMP makes up it's own rules, and informs no one of this until well after the fact. Had they called me immediately I could have jumped on it, and possibly corrected the problem. But instead they just ignored the whole thing for a month, (why I have no idea), then cancelled the entire order.

So after over 3 months of patiently waiting, this effectively put me right back at square one. They sent me some sort of packet containing a bunch of forms to fill out and send to the FBI, in an attempt to try to straighten this whole mess out. By this time I was so damn disgusted with the whole matter I just dropped it and chalked it up to a bad experience. Besides, I'm not even required to have a background check performed when I purchase a weapon because of the fact I already posess a current, valid CCW. Again, this complies with Federal, as well as state laws. But the CMP could care less.

If your order went smoothly for you, as many do, I am happy for you. Just so people know that if you happen to hit the slightest snag in the order process, the CMP will not be very accommodating. They are a bureaucracy just like any other, and are run as such, and believe me it shows.
