    Hello I'm looking for some help on valuation of an M1 garand. I have a very nice M1 Garand package with IHC parts and LMR barrel from 1954. Throat and Muzzle are very good to excellent at 1.5+ each. lot of extras:
    - enbloc clips
    - Ammo plus box of sealed ammo in ammo can
    - GI cleaning kit and patches, tool
    - white plastic caps
    - extra sling
    - CMP Case, certificate
    - IHC trigger, Oprod, sites, receiver

    i'm just looking for a range of value if anybody could help out I would appreciate it in the likely posted for sale on this forum later. Thanks for any help ! I'm working I getting pix.

    IHC was the least produced of the M1 Garands and had the most variations They bring a premium over other makes. That being said the value will be based on condition, what variation it is and how straight the rifle is. From the photos its had to tell condition. The fact its a CMP rifle is a plus.The rifle appears to be a standard logo receiver. About 20 years ago I sold my IHC M1 collection. My standard logo IHCs brought twice the price of a correct standard M1. The Gap letter receivers and Arrowhead logos brought three times the price of the standard M1 of the same condition. Best bet is to check Gun Broker

      Your IHC is the "Postage Stamp" variation, the most commonly encountered model. Nothing special about it that I can see, other than the fact it is an IHC, a desirable maker to have due to the relatively low number made, about 330, 000, give or take. I have one and it's a terrific shooter--the LMR barrels are the cat's meow.

        Since the IHC CMP release common Postage Stamp IHC's have gone down some. Really cant give a accurate value estimate without knowing if it has all IHC parts and IHC stock

        "If " rifle is completely original on a very good day you might be in the $2000-$2400 range . For a rebuild $1200-$1500 , again depending on what parts is on the rifle.
        This is just a real rough ballpark estimate

          Parts not stamped with IHC should be stamped with letter codes or other identifying marks. Here are pics of my all original IHC that you can use for comparison. I value this rifle around $2200-$2400 on a very good day

                            Does your rifle have any import stamps. Somewhere around 25 years ago Century Intl. imported a small batch of mint IHCs out of Morocco. They appeared to have never been issued.
