Default AP. M1 Garand 6/45

Just bought a M1 garand from my neighbor who's father owned it form over 30 years. This rifle is mint, has a R.R.A. on the stock with a rectangle with a P inside on it just under the grip. The rifle looks unfired, sure you have heard that from a lot of folks. Looking at the parts, they all look right.
anyway I have owned several and sold them when money was tight, along with lugers and k-98's g43's and g41's. but that is life, they were an investment. In the last three months, got three matching (all) k98's, a ce 44, a Dou 43 and a ar43. Just trying to get my collection going again. I paid $750.00 for Garand. This is a very interesting we site, I also collect German helmets.

Very nice German military items. I have collected and sold quite a lot over the years-I wish that I still had some of what I sold like the byf 41 luger all matching with holster and capture papers. You have some nice items there. As you can see from my avatar that I still collect German military-yes the MP 40 is legal and the helmets are original. Best regards
