    Value M1 Garand, serial number mid 500,000

    I recently came into possession of an m1 garand from my father, I was looking into the value of it. The serial number says its is from 1942 I believe. The problem is that it has sat in a closet for more than three decades and not been fired in a long while. It seems like it is in good shape from the outside, no pitting and the wood seems in good shape. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    A complete set of photos and gauging of barrel would be helpful. Is rifle import marked?

      As RDS said. Need more info. Basically you've said, "I came across this old Chevy that hasn't been driven in 30 years but has been garaged the whole time. What's it worth?" Just sayin'

          there is only marking in two spots

          1. the serial number and says Springfield armory and says its 30.06 cal.

          2. and some random numbers and letters: D28287-2SA RE5C

          Thanks!

            The "random numbers and letters" are the drawing (or part) number of the receiver(D28287. -2 is second revision). RE5C is for the supplier of the material the receiver was made from. In this instance Republic Steel. 5C is the material lot identification number.

              Those few pictures don't help a lot. Its hard to tell but it looks as though it may have correct Type I rear sights which are fairly valuable. It would be wise to take action out of the stock and take detailed pictures of all parts
              Pictures need to be taken up close and clear
