Whose rebuilt an M1 Garand

I was looking at the CMP website and the rack grade M1 Garands are in the 400 dollar range (not that I can afford one).

I am not interested in memorabilia and the CMP probably knows that collector grade guns. I wanted to get a junker and rebuild it from the ground up with Fulton Armory parts.

It would still cost about as much as just ordering a new one from them, but then at least I would have a pile of extra parts laying around. Has anyone refurbed one of these awesome rifles?

You'll spend about 3 times that building one, maybe more. Just save up and get a rack grade. They aren't that bad. The bullet might come out sideways, but you can get it rebarreled later if you want.

I bought a field grade a few years ago for about the price of the rack grades now. I requested a WWII serial number and got a 1944 USGI. That thing will put a clip on a paper pie plate at 200 yards.

I have a service grade that I picked up a few years back. The thing came in looking brand new. I think it was either a 1954 or 1955 Springfield. Roll the dice.
