Nice! Please do post pics of it when you get a chance.
No. Neither came from the CMP. They are 1958 Type 1 NMs (verified by the CMP records). 666 is unfired since manufacture. 665 is still a 98% rifle although it has been shot in matches and the front and rear sights upgraded to NM (unhooded rear) per the 1959 regulations. I wrote an article for the GCA Journal on them but the infighting and fallout from that ultimately led to my leaving the community and selling off all of my rifles but these and "Ole's Rifle". I used to have a significant collection and actually ran for the GCA Board of Directors at one time. Now I just have four (the three previously mentioned and a 5.62 HRA for my shooter).
I used to own 4440467. I picked it up from a Club sale in St. Joseph, MO. It had a rebuild marked leg but was still original finish. It took me a year to restore it but when I got done it was as nice as an original. M1s were my heroin. I've been clean and sober since 2007. They are things of beauty.
Sorry for the late reply. Mine is a postage stamp, original LMR barrel and IHC stock with number in the handguard. I'll work on getting some pictures.
+1. It's really the only way to go...
thanks to this thread, I just spent thirty minutes going through the m1A and garand picture thread!
Where did they stick that thread? I haven't seen it in a while since folks are now posting their M1 / M1A pics in this forum.
its still in the photo section. I just did a forum search for garand
The thread wasn't showing in my index in that forum, so I posted a pic to bring it back onto the radar.
I would have really liked to have given CMP my business, however the whole joining process put me off. Anyway back on topic, after several deals falling through, I should have my Garand sitting in the safe tomorrow night. Pics will be coming post haste.
