    LEtterkenneyArmyDepot, where it was overhauled/rerefurbished. It was rebuilt n January, 1965. It is electro penciled, not carved. Is there an orange tri-angle on the bottom of the pistol grip?

      Does this devalue the rifle quite a lot? Here’s a photo of the pistol grip.

        A rebuilt rifle is always worth less than a original or corrected rifle. Some guys are collecting these 1960's rebuilds. In excellent condition as they were after rebuild I see SA and HRA sell in the $1150 -$1200 range

          Yep that’s about what l figured. lts ln great condition. l will prob try to sell for $1100 or something. Thanks for your time.

          What would an m1 with an original WW2 stock that has not been reparked be worth? Almost all of them seem to have been reparked.

            We need a pic of the BOTTOM of the pistol grip not the front to see if the LEAD rebuild stamp is there.

              There are about 100 variables that would determine the value of the rifle.

                  That stock apparently then, is not the stock from the rebuild, unless the orange triangle has just been worn off. We'll never know.

                    Kinda like asking whats a old chevy worth. There is more to a original garand than having original finish and having original stock. Earlier WWII and pre war riles are worth more than later WWII rifles. There is just no way to answer your question as prices vary from several thousands to many tens of thousands $$$
