WTB M1 Garand .30-06

Looking for a 'Sunday driver' so to speak. Not necessarily correct in matching parts but rather in excellent condition without modifications.

CMP stocks are pretty low... Don't trust Gun Broker. I'm normally in CO Springs but at Bragg for the moment.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

Not sure if you're still looking for this, but the Civilian Marksmanship Program offers rifles for sale that come directly from the government. They're a mixed bag with a variety of qualities available, and they're normally cheaper than market. As a veteran or active duty, you'll be able to apply without having to attend a firearms safety course. This is the same organization offering up the .45s

If you buy a used M-1 at a gun show separate the stock and receiver and then check the inside of the receiver to see if it has been cut and re-welded. There are many of them floating around out there. It will function but the alteration detracts from the collector value.

Many years ago I didn't know about "cut Garands" and bought one from a pawn shop without checking. After learning about them I sold mine to someone else who didn't know.

Good point. Here is an article on receiver cutting.
