I just bought my first m1 garand and coudnt be any happier. Mine is an early Winchester 1449xx made in febuary of 42. I paid a bit for it but have always wanted one. I am curious what they usually sell for. I have started to collect ww2 weapons and memrobelia. My grandfather was in the tenth airforce in China Burma India. I have his complete uniform with all medals and ribbons etc. Another complete U.S Army and navy uniform as well. Many pictures and letters and other collectables. Thanks for looking.
