    I voted SA as I have a strong passion for Gas Trap parts...however I do get excited when I find a Winchester Part!

      My favorite garand has nothing to do with manufacture but how it shoots.

        My 11-65 SA rebuilt IHC which is my match rifle. 2nd choice is my fully correct post war SA. Third, my fully correct HRA, the first Garand I purchased. But, I still have to consider the M1D I built from scratch with all USGI parts. ​​​​​

            I like "corn binders" (IHC). As a kid I drove IHC tractors. But any M1 built in 1953 is on my list. On a side note IHC was one of the largest suppliers of military equipment in WWII. IHC was awarded 24 Army-Navy E awards during WWII. They built everything from trucks, halftracks, bulldozers, prime movers, torpedoes. 57mm anti tank guns and much much more.

              My favorite is the one I got from the DCM back in '81 (SA 3.7 RRAD rebuild). You really had to "earn" them back then and the wait time was 15-18 months and no mfg choice. You got what you got and were damn glad to get it.

                Probably my RM1SPECIAL from the CMP. It's not a collector's item but is essentially a brand new rifle that shoots well, is reliable, and the stock set is comfortable in the hands and points naturally. The serial # dates the receiver to Feb 1943.

                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.

                  My fave is my win-13, but I shoot vintage sniper with my sa
                  m1d which gets a second nod from me.
