    Nice to see those stamps in the left side of the stock.
    I actually like this one better than your CMP version.

    Mine below for comparison. Got this one about 25
    years ago from author/collector R. Blake Stevens
    who wrote: 'US Rifle M14 - from John Garand
    to the M21'.........

    Thank you.. Nice rifle.

    One of the guys that I work with, last name "Garand" is actually the nephew of Mr. John Garand.

    Very Nice. I like the lock bar sights!! I have those on mine.
    So did you gage the muzzle and chamber?

    Those are such beautiful rifles! They look like they will last forever and built like a tank. I hope to find one some day, it'll be in my collection.

    Hi Mark.

    There are still quite a lot of these out there, but condition
    is a factor in cost. Weeks ago I saw one at a local show
    which was similar to the one above - asking $1,900.
    20 years ago there were some surplus Garands up
    here for $199 each, but they didn't look too great.

    The Civilian Marksmanship Program down your way
    would be the 'cream-of-the-crop' for a nice Garand
    these days and something to look into - unless
    you stumble across a beauty like Rob's.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Thanks for the info, Steve. I have seen some of the guys posting about the CMP and have wondered if all the Garands were WW2 era? The program sounds great. Would you happen to know if they provide matching-parts rifles or are they pieced together? Everyone would like a matching rifle, myself included.

    20 years ago? Imagine what will happen 20 years from now. Will collections be that much more valuable? Will only certain things be more valuable? I hope to be around to find out, but I can wait!

    Lol - I'd buy another if I could get this kind of program here !

    I believe they are all refurbed in some way - new wood,
    barrels and certain parts but apparently you can make
    requests for specifics and 'Special' grades. Below are
    a couple of members' threads who recently
    purchased CMP Garands:
