$1060 for CMP IHC Garand, is it worth it?

I snailmailed an order in for one of these and received the DBU email, but they need me to resubmit one of the forms notorized before proceeding.

What's the consensus? Is this a fair price for a SG IHC Garand?

In a few years that's going to be a steal. Get em while ya can.

Considering that I sold my IHC with LMR barrel for $1100 more than 2 years ago, without any wavering by the buyer ...

shouldn't you have asked before sending in the order?

If its original, very fair. If its a IHC receiver, a springfield barrel, winchester trigger group, etc i think not so much. When i first began “accumulating” i found an IHC gap letter rifle. I paid 1k, and then realized it had a springfield barrel ( the rifle was listed in scott duff’s book with a lmr barrel, that my seller changed...gomfigure. Maybe he just considered it a shooter and wanted to replace the lmr) . Replaced the stock too but at least it was a beautifully figured early springfield with the GHC stamp. That may have been worth $400. There are some great books on garands. Canfield’s new book is available, duff has several. GCA has a journal ( just received the winter 17 issue today.). For values, review the on line sellers to find similar. Simpsons, for example. Checkpoint charlies. Same thing could be said for winchester receivers with unmatched parts. Good luck. They are really nice rifles.

Thanks for the responses.
Orlando, in the past IHC and Winchesters thru CMP sold out long before my snail mail order would have been in the running. While I would like to have one for my modest collection, it wasn't a need in my life.
I thought my last order qualified me for another order without the notary requirement, but according to CMP that ship sailed this past Jan., so before completing the purchase thought I would see what the consensus was with regards to price.
Apparently the recent influx of garands and limit of 1 per year purchase on IHC's has killed the urgency on submitting an order?

Go look on the open market and see if you could buy one for anything near that price. I have not paid close attention to makers or if they are mix masters but when I see a Garand I'll look at the hang tag and the ones I see are higher than that unless it is a real beater.

I just sent in my CMP app today for a Springfield for $730. I was considering the IHC but this forum talked me out of it. I love IHCs but for that money I’d want to see how much IHC parts it has.

CMP says up front it only guarantees a IHC receiver for $1060
I have one each - Springfield, Winchester and H&R, the H&R the only one being close to correct

Got a mix master with a Winchester trigger group and a new 65 barrel for around 900 last fall. New walnut stock from cmp and I've seen the same configuration going for 12-14 hundred. Just getting into the rife but I feel the deal was worth it. Bunch of the other stuff was SA.
