    Mark Johnson also said he expected to be completely out of garands by 2017 unless more arrive.

    They are also talking about building rifles on grade c receivers, to create a lower grade special......I've got a grade c receiver. Not going to be the prettiest rifles...

    well remember, CMP is running short because Obama has continued to disallow importing of the 10 of thousands of Garands we (the USA) leased to Korea during the Korean war.

    funny, these are exactly the type of guns the liberals would seem to support. no high capacity mag, limited to 8 rounds, not a quick reload, to big for use drive-by's, expensive ammo, too heavy and long for gang's to carry around or criminals to conceal.
    Funny how those ain't "weapons of war", but an AR-15 or a WASR-10 is. :rolleyes:

    Oh man, I have a 308 Tanker Garand, but want a full length 308 Garand. I better get a full size one soon, but I am saving for an AR10.

    They haven't made these things for about 60 years now. They're gonna' run out some time folks. I mean, you can't expect them to be available forever!

    My health took a very nasty turn not long ago, and I am now trimming a healthy collection of M1 Garands sooner than I'd planned to. I have SA and IHC Garands available, but, of course, not at CMP prices, but you if you live in central MD, you can see and handle the rifle before committing.

    I sell on GunBroker as Good Guy 176 and have one late War SA listed now at $1,275 start price. It's a June 1945 rifle and pretty nice with its original SA 6 45 barrel, lockbar sight and SA/NFR cartouched stock.

    The CMP wouldn't get those unless the Korean's decided to give them back to the US Army and the Army declares them surplus to their needs and turns them over to the CMP. Korea wants to sell those guns to the commercial market to make some money.

    Phuck Korea the ungrateful bastards. We spend billions protecting them and this is what we get in return. I would hope Trump loosens things up and tells them, send them or back or start paying up for all we do. Same for the other countries that abuse us.

    My order form is sitting on my kitchen table all filled out, just haven't had a chance to get it notarized. No rush now.

    Im now on the hunt for an affordable IHC and/or WRA. Would like the major parts to match. Finding one is not the problem, finding an affordable one is. :)

    Not looking for "correct", just the main parts. Ive seen a few go for 1000-1200 on GB, but just haven't pulled the trigger. Was hoping to trade a SA and give some funds in a trade, but haven't had much luck... On that note, I haven't really tried to do that yet besides put a post on the cmp forums.

    I agree but facts are paperwork /proof is what gives the rifle value especially on higher end Garands
    I received an IHC correct Garand (all parts ) from the DCM in 1994 and the only paper work was the box it was shipped in, which I still have. Does that mean it's value is hurt.

    If it is turuely all correct ,no as you have DCM provenance. Do you know how to tell if parts are IHC that are not stamped/marked? Later IHC's had letter codes on parts that other manufactures let unmarked/stamped
    Agree or dissagree its common fact that rifles without CMP/DCM paperwork do not sell as fast and as high as price as rifles with paperwork

    Yup. CMP paperwork seems to add ~$100 or so to the value. If nothing else, it's a certification that the rifle was good-to-go.
