shops selling restored M1 Garands

Other than James River Armory, can anyone recommend a shop selling restored M1s? (not that there's anything wrong with JRA, they just don't always have them in stock)

but not cheap.
don't know about their carbines but the Johnson's they've restored are very nice, although not quite to original specs (finish, wood, etc is too nice )

whoops, didn't see this caveat:

I am trimming my M1 Garand inventory and have sold many of them , but I still have quite a few and might have something you'd be interested in if you want to send me an email. I sell on GunBroker as Good Guy 176 and I have an Underwood M1 Carbine for sale presently. My Garands range from Field grade to Collector grade.

A CMP Special Grade is a restored Garand. Reparked, new barrel, new stock.

Best bet is CMP. You dont have to worry about someone selling you a rifle with a fake certificate. Hes a member of this very forum
