    Sons High School Graduation Present

    I just purchased a Garand from a private seller and after looking at it and doing some lurking, it appears to be a Red River rebuild
    that was never used after it was proofed. TE is 2 and ME is 0, barrel dated SA10/63. Question is should i give it to my kid or keep it for myself
    and find him another

      thanks for the welcome. The more i look at the rifle the more i want to keep it for myself. I dont think ones like this pop up every day it even has a MN op rod

        NM op rods were commonly used in rebuilds. Nothing special about it. Personally, I'd keep that rifle and find another'ne for your son. It should be a great shooter. The 60's SA barrels were some of the finest ever made.

          60's rebuilds are actually pretty common anymore, CMP has released alot of them lately. They are nice refiles but not rare by any means

            My DCM "one per life time" was a RRAD rebuild complete with birch butt stock and NM op rod. Both were "corrected" a l-o-n-g time ago. I still have that rifle and all these years later it's still a tack-driver, well, almost.
