A basic comparison is what CMP is selling them for. A service grade is $750 and a select grade is I think $1050. My service grade is close to as good quality as what is in your picture, except it is a new walnut stock. Not sure if mine has an original barrel or not (HRA 1955 receiver and 1955 SA barrel. I donít know the history of HRA manufacture to know if they made their own barrels or made the receivers and sourced parts from others).

Private sales most Garands tend to start around $1000 unless in really bad shape.
The $1050 select grade has new production furniture and barrels, in addition to everything being refinished if it isn't new or NOS.

Having a GI stock would help its value over a new stock. Lately, I've been seeing M1s on the secondary market starting at $800 rather than $1000.

HRA did make their own barrels, but they also used SA and LMR barrels. I believe Scott Duff wrote that HRAs used SA barrels very early and then again relatively late in production.

Buy the gun, not the story.

$800 isn’t a bad price regardless of the provenance if it’s generally in decent shape.

I’d say you probably won’t go too wrong at that price...and might just get a steal (although from what I see and others have said, it doesn’t look like it matches the story).

My bet, it’s fairly priced but NOT a steal.

Garand $800 unless its got a mechanical issue or the bore is gone and muzzle greater than 2.5 (e.g., nearly swallowing a bullet) sounds like a grab.
