Please help me buy an M1

A friend's wife asked for some help buying an M1 that her husband (said friend) would use (think Christmas). This needs to be a complete surprise (wife would never, ever think of doing this before last week). Friend is not a collector, and is not interested in a safe queen. He would love to have an M1 that he can shoot on the range and perhaps hunting or varmiting on occasion. Reasonably good condition, good shooter, not in need of any work to take it out and shoot safely.

I can guide her through the legal requirements, no problem, but I'm not an M1 guy. I've shot a few of them, but that's about it. I am looking for some good advice, price ranges, and perhaps a few leads. Friend is in Carroll county, and I'll be accompanying the wife to look at things. Any IPs out nearby with something sitting on the rack?

Thanks.

The CMP is the place to buy M1 Garands. Meeting the qualifications requirements is not hard.
http://thecmp.org/cmp_sales/rifle_sales/m1-garand/

An MDS member just ordered one and it was delivered in 13 days. See post #32:

Good question. I didn't know about the variants. Will ask. Thanks for the education!

She's flexible at the moment. She's seen the listings on Gunbroker and has not blinked...

Go to the CMP website/forums and see what you can find, plenty of rifles either from the CMP or from private sellers.
Theirs no sense paying anymore than you have to.
