One source of guns to look at is called backpage.com; it is a bit like Craigslist, but has lots of firearms in the "Sports Equipment" category. With luck, there will be one in your area. One thing to look out for on the M1 Garand is those put together by Century. They have newer US made receivers and the rest of the parts are genuine original. The collector value is questionable, but they can be functional.
