    Modern M1 Garand Manufacturers

    Who makes quality M1 Garands today? I know there are plenty of WWII surplus rifles out there, but my plate is full messing with USGI M14 stuff. I'd rather stick to a modern, currently manufactured M1 Garand for convenience. I know Fulton Armory has some, and I have seen some in stores commemorating WWII anniversary dates (with the engraved buttstocks). Who else is out there? And their quality?

    I would look into LOSOK, I think he is making a modern updated M1 type action.

          Hmm, I get an error when trying to access LOSOK's website. It says access denied. I wonder if they are still in business?

            Check out the CMP special grade garands. You essentially get a brand new rifle built off an original receiver, with refinished parts. There are many other offerings out there for a new production garand, but be ready to fork out the $$$$$$$

              I wonder if one of the guys here would be interested in taking on the project of building you a killer one, a turnkey ready rifle. That way you wouldn't have to mess around.

                Stay away from SA commercially made. I had a chance to compare a SA commercial & a SA armory. Commercial made was much lighter!

                  I know this is an old thread but I work at SAI and the newer Garands haven't been built since '06 or '07. I asked around the shop about why we stopped building them but couldn't seem to get a straight answer. The one I believe is just lack of sales. I think they were $1,100. Gee whiz, buy a repop or the real thing for the same price? And they are indeed much lighter. Also SAI receivers are cast not forged.

                      SA Inc Garand receivers were made in Australia by ADI. Reviews vary. Australian Defence Industries, formerly Small Arms Factory Lithgow have made rifles for the Australia military since 1913.

                        I highly recommend a CMP Special Grade. I just picked one up and love it. I's essentially a brand new M1 Garand built with an inspected and refinished receiver. All the other parts are either brand new or gauged and inspected new and refinished. They use Criterion barrels and new walnut (matching color as well) wood. For the money in particular, I don't think you could do any better.
                        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.

                          Just to repeat, Get a CMP special (when they are available) if you want an essentially new Garand. Mine is a tack driver, a little lighter than most and looks great. It's my "go to" utility rifle for anything a rifle is suited for. The folks at Anniston know the Garand probably better than nearly anyone else and build a an excellent rifle.

                            Is it the Phillipines, and South Korea sending some back to the USA?

                              The CMP is selling Garands returned from the Philippines, and from Turkey. They might even have a few still left from US military inventory. Guess it depends which storage box they open. Rifles from South Korea are being imported commercially, not sure who, and don't know if they are even being sold yet.
