Default Just bought my first M1 Garand

Went to the National gun day show in Louisville, KY on saturday and got my first Garand. It's an HRA, "correct" (all parts match, numbers do not) piece. The bore is still good and the condition is very good, the guy let it go for 600 bucks and even threw in a 20 rd box of ammo and his business card, saying if I ever had an issue to call (apparently a renowned "master gun builder" from Ohio, though his name escapes me at the moment). So, what you guy's think?
A. Stole it.
B. Good deal.
C. Eh, 'bout right.
D. That's a terrible deal, you wanna make your money back?

I voted "Good deal". Would have voted "Stole it" if you knew the TE/MW numbers, and they were low. (Throat Erosion/Muzzle Wear).

Remember to use M2 spec ammo, or get a Schuster gas plug.

A very good deal.

Here's the pics, the wood is a little splotchy, but otherwise in good shape, the gun itself is in great shape for what I payed. Oh, and all the parts match EXCEPT that purty little trigger assembly, which is wartime Springfield. These cell phone pictures definitely don't do it justice.

Thanks for posting photos, We all love some gun porn. Give her a good cleaning and inspection and shoot the crap out of it.
