    To make it correct you are talking about a $2500+ investment beyond what you've already spent on it. Barrel and stock alone close to $1000. Probably far more than it will ever be worth after you get it done if, and I mean IF, you can even find the parts to do it at all. So, bottom line, no it's generally not worth it unless you have a lot of expendable cash begging to be spent for a project not likely to be a good investment. It will never be original and will always be a put together correct rifle. Almost every such rifle is worth more in the sum of it's parts disassembled than it is as a complete rifle.

    Depends on how much money your willing to invest in it. You may find it much cheaper to purchase a correct straight Winchester.

    Some advice/help with my M1

    I got the opportunity to buy a M1 garand just this week. I bought it sight unseen, except for a few pics. Those pics told me all I needed to know, regarding it being a safe buy (early serial # WRA receiver). I'm starting to dig deeper into the history of this rifle, and I would appreciate any insight you guys have.
    Receiver is WRA #137869
    Receiver Housing??? D28291-2 WRA
    Trigger Assembly #D28290-5-SA
    Bolt D28287-12SA. S-06 (diamond)
    Barrel 1-S-A-6-43

    There are no stamps or cartouches on the stock.
    It also came with a 16" bayonet stamped SA 1920 with wood grips in beautiful shape.


    I would also like your opinions on whether it would be worth it to try and hunt down all WRA parts, and try and make it a true WRA M1, or keep it as is. For some reason, I can't upload any pics. Thanks in advance!
