    No way in heck. Not for a worn out gun with poor sights.

    I thought the good ones were going to auction.

    Understood 100%...the whole process has been a royal PITA. All for a 10-20% shot at getting your number drawn.


    Only the most valuable pieces...likely just the pistols with historical significance or that are collector's grade quality. Approximately 500 pistols were transferred from the Army museum system so I would assume that a number of those will probably end up going the auction route. A majority of the pistols have undergone rebuild (likely more than once) so they wouldn't be considered auction worthy.

    I'm right there with you! I'd use the cash for another Garand first.
