Humm? If you ever find a Remington Garand you will be able to retire in style.

I owned a grand, years ago. Think I got it from southern Ohio gun for something around two hundred bucks. In the mid 80's.

Mine was 30-06. Never did like the feed system on the blasted thing. Much prefer a magazine.

If they were selling them for $200 again, I would pass. Sold it to be rid of it. Haven't looked back. Mine was Springfield armory as I recall.

Have a LR308 now, much prefer that over my old grand.

Only manufacture of Garands are Springfield, Winchester, HRA, IHC. Springfield is the most common manufacture with the most numbers made, Remington never made Garands
At one time HRA Garands were considered somewhat scarce . With the huge amount of them that came from CMP and the Greeks that has now changed, they are very common.
The IHC rifles are the same way, yes there were less of them made but reason they are so collectable is there arent many around.
Why? A large number of them were loaned to the Turkish Govt, some of the IHC's CMP will be selling is coming form them.
These rifles will be priced alot higher than what other manufactures CMP is now selling.
For your first Garand I suggest getting a nice HRA Service Grade
Good luck with your decision

Doesn't veteran status automatically qualify a buyer on all counts? I've looked through their requirements, and that's how it appears to me.

See, we are no longer allowed to copy military IDs or 214s. It used to be no big deal, but now you can get hammered pretty good for it.

I'm mostly just trying to talk myself into making the trip

Their all good...

IH is the rarest, but HRA only made less than 90,000 more than IHC

Oh and their post WWII- Very few of the IH and HRA M1's even made it to Korea.

So, would a cellpic be a "copy" or a scanned image?
