Default Need a Garand receiver.

I found an M1 Garand in my grandpa's closet a few years back. He passed away so me and my dad went through his stuff because grandma wanted the guns out and we found it. The thing is it was a Century rebuild with a cast receiver, and poly on the stock. Ive already gotten the stock back to normal, not i just need a receiver and the rest should be a cake walk.

Some of the importers may have what you want. Century Arms of Florida, Centerfiresystems.co, Southern Ohio Guns.
Good luck.

I can't do CMP. I don't belong to any of the stuff neccessary to qualify.

But i have checked out their stuff and it looks good.

I'll have to ask the local gunshop to do a little diggin with some of the importers to see what they have.

You might want to try Sarco, Inc., Firearms, Firearms Parts and Accessories they have parts galore.

(Numrich) Numrich Gun Parts Corporation might have what you need also. Ron

No C&R? No concealed license? Ever shoot in a competition? Military service? There's more than one way to buy from the CMP....

With one weekend of effort you can meet the CMP requirements. Shoot an IDPA match and that will meet the competition requirement. If you were born in the U.S. you have a birth certificate. You can join the M1 Garand Association for $25 when you buy the rifle. A month from now you could have the gun in your hand with a little effort.

Nope, nope, nope, and nope. Well it is gonna take me a while to scrape the funds together, so i guess adding another 25 to join the M1 garand association wouldn't be too bad.

Thanks for some good info guys.

Yeah, I guess you could go that route too.

Hey, shouldn't purchasing from the CMP be a benefit of "Supporting Member" status?????
