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?

I can't bear the thought of losing, I dread the attention winning brings

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.

You can do things the right way or the wrong way.
Or you can do it MY way...which is like the wrong way, only faster.
