    Upward trend in Garand prices since CMP supply is down to a trickle

    I have seen very big hikes of prices for Garand's. Hold on to your seats it will get worse and not better. Decent rifles will bring big prices!

      Yes do not sell now. wait till next year to sell. When all you can buy is a shooter grade rifle reparkerized and a commercial new barrel with new wood for $1070 with tax. Good collector rifles are going auction. The well has dried up! CMP is doing a great job to promote the sport and marksmanship. lets face it there is nothing to bring back.

            M1 rifles are like real estate--neither is being made any more.

              I'm not sure the Garand could be manufactured at competitive prices. The newly manufactured 30 Carbibes are $400 too high.

                The new inland carbines are investment cast not hammer forged like the real Military carbines. A company like Bula Defence can make hammer forged Garands. But the cost would be upwards 2K. Bula makes the best M14 clone today just the the military milspec M-14.

                  Is that how Fulton Armory is doing there carbines?

                  A new Garand is not worth 2 grand, the rifle was great in its time but that time has passed.

                    I've been watching the CMP for an M1. Prices were $750-$1000 but everything seemed to be out of stock. I recently purchased a Nov 1944 Springfield in very nice condition for $1300 from a good friend of mine. It would have been way too much a year ago, but in today's prices it seemed like a great deal.

                    No import marks, appears to have been re-armored at RIA in the 50s where it got a '53 LMR barrel.

                    Got a box of enblocs, reloading dies, and 500rd of brass. Good price? I dunno but I think so.

                      I think you got a good deal especially since you also got the LMR barrel, the brass, and the reloading dies.
