Check out the CMP. You have to jump through a few hoops to meet the requirements to purchase (have a ccw and join the GCA are the easiest). However hey are the best deal out for the M1 and the CMP is a good organization to support.

Garand Collectors Association, need to belong to an affiliated club or join the GCA to fulfill one of the requirements for purchasing from the CMP.

Default WTB M-1 garand

Itís actually not hard to buy from cmp. Itís just a lot of paperwork. There are a lot of faqs and links on the internet on how to do so. Cmp rifles usually exceed my expectations depending on the grade and they are a great buy....when they have them in stock

I had a easy chance years ago but procrastinated about it. I was getting ready to move and didn't want to take a chance of it getting there after the move.

I sent my paperwork to the CMP just before Thanksgiving - Copy of birth cert, DL, CCW, NRA membership, credit card info. $730 and 10 days later I had a beautiful Service Grade M1 on my front porch.

CMP is the only way to go for Garands! Let's just say that I have enough Garands, but I still want more knowing the resale value... lol
