Sounds like the Garand is covered here....
I really don't see them taking it that far. There are a lot of weapons that would cover if they decided to get anal about it.

How far will evildoers go? You're giving the benefit of the doubt to those who have broadcast their intentions for decades. This is truly the most openly evil and corrupt administration ever in our republic. How far will they take it? Why not expect them to go all the way?

Trust me, they're definitely anal enough and they are on a crusade.

That is why it is so important to read between the lines. A 50 is a 50 whether it uses modern powder or black powder. These yahoos can't distinguish between an auto loading rifle or a auto loading shotgun. There are all assault weapons in their tiny little brains.

The truth of the matter is if brains were made out of gun powder these liberal commie fags wouldn't have enough to blow the wax out of their ears. You can take that to the bank.

Nice setup, but I think the good old sixteen incher just looks more suitable for the aught three or seventeen....

BUY IT, trust me you'll be kicking yourself later if you don't. You can't find one anywhere for close to that, in fact the cheapest I've found one for is $1000.

A couple of years ago I found an M-1 Carbine for $200. I didn't buy it cause I didn't think I could afford it but the next day I came into some money. I drove straight back there with my money to get it but it was gone.

Still kicking myself. About six or sevn years ago I was visiting my gunsmith and he had a Garand he just completely refinished and reworked. I mean total attention to detail. He was in one of his "im getting out of the business moods" and offered it up for $500. I didn't take it. Kick, kick
I had the cash in my pocket! kick kick
Cant remember what I blew my money on.. kick
I swear it was the most beautiful M1 I've ever laid eyes on.

I found a 1943 Springfield in excellent condition, like 95%. New wood, although it may have been orig. and never issued. I paid $600 maybe 10 yrs. ago. My 1943 PAL bayo ran me about $75, "cut down" to 10" or whatever they cut them down to.
