Got mine through the CMP, last year. $395! Furniture has some defects, but other than that no complaints. Ammo006.jpg Ammo007.jpg Ammo003.jpg

Thats a nice rifle there. Especially from the CMP. I mean, you never know what your gonna get from them and it looks like you got a good one. The metal looks to be in good shape.:cool:

Who cares if the wood is banged up? Personally, I would enjoy that alot more, because it adds some authenticity, and history, to the rifle. Of course, that's assuming the rifle was banged up like that because of use.

Still, great rifle! I would love to hear you shoot it.

Kubador;4378209You have to polish your wood every morning since it's shiny... Shit, I made a gay and polish joke at the same time... Someone please kill me.

2 Garand owners in this thread, I'm sure one of them wants to help you.

Yeah, but this is a Greek stock, not the original American WWII vintage. On the plus side that means it was used to fight both the Axis AND the Greek commies! The serial number indicates mine dates back to Nov. 1943 (Springfield). Sooner or later I'll get a historian to research the its detailed history.

Shoots great, and I am so grateful I could get such a piece.

Ahh ok. Thats cool.:cool: And yea the garand is a great shooter. The only problem I had with mine was...

Awhile by I was shooting and the extraction pin just cut in half. It was an old one though so I guess that was coming sooner or later. Besides that, I've never had a problem!
