    They're smoking crack

    https://www.legacy-collectibles.com/...it-serial.html

    awful lot of money for a parts gun
    whatever

    There's two groups that divide the Garand community:
    Collectors and shooters.
    Collectors try to build and maintain certain configurations of the rifle, often with no intention to ever use what they buy and/or build.
    Shooters actually shoot and use their rifles on targets, hunting and in competition.
    I'm primarily a shooter, but am coming to accept that collectors have a purpose in preserving the history of the rifle.
    Users maintain the knowledge base in the rifles virtues as a combat and utility arm.
    The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
    The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.

      most collectors that I know have both "shooter rifles" and collector rifles

    I guess if there is no rush to sell, start high and see what happens.

        Exactly. And way too much for a shooter.

          That's A LOT of cash. Of course I agree with the OP, it seems like too many things are going this way and lots of people need to put down the crack pipe.

            Somebody bought it??? Even the receiver has been parked a few times. What a mixer and way overpriced!!

              It was a consignment gun. I think it got pulled. There's no way in the world that somebody would be that dumb to pay 10 K for just a receiver. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around that. But then again, there are people who get too anxious when they see something and do not do their research and Pull the Pin. Then they get burned
