    Good Day from San Diego!

    Hi - I'm Dave. I am a new M1 Garand owner since Tuesday.

    I purchased my first M1 Garand at auction, an April 1940 Springfield Armory (Serial #338xx).

    I am trying to find out all I can about this rifle. It apparently was safe queen, was shipped from the Anniston Army Depot delivered in July 1986 from the Director of Civilian Marksmanship (DCM) and rated as "COND B Service Grade" W/OE (1005-00-674-1425) rifle. The rifle came with the original shipping box, all paperwork, cosmoline rifle wrap, NRA Highpower Rifle Match firing certification (08-25-1985), and cost $94.30 at the time, with taxes and fees, totaled $165.00.

    It also came with an original U.F.H. bayonet (circa 1942-1944). That's all a I know for now. I have not fired the rifle at this time, it did not come with Enbloc clips, so as soon as they arrive, I'll probably take it to the range and fire it, clean it, and then store it in my safe. I feel really lucky to have this rifle. I am fascinated by the history and knowledge about these rifles. I am hoping to find some veteran owners who can guide me as a novice Garand owner.

    I've wanted a Garand most of my life, and now finally, I have a good one. Here are a few pics of what I got in my purchase...
