Really nice collection you have there!

You're making me feel real bad, I just sold my only M1 Garand on GB so I could pay off a lingering credit card bill:( Oh well, I got a great deal on it when I bought and I made a hefty profit by selling it so it wasn't a total loss.

Regardless now I want another M1 Garand, especially since I'm midway through The Pacific right now.

The Pacific is coming for me this month via Netflix and I can only imagine what my dream list is going to look like after that. Band of Brothers really played up the Garand but I think I remember seeing at least a few 1911 shots in the trailer for The Pacific. Nice Garand collection by the way. I've had the privilege of holding one near and dear years ago.

I can only hope someone has my old issue M1 that I had when I was briefly on my companys rifle team way back when. One sweet shooting piece.

Thanks for the pics.

Question for you .... what is the finish you put on those stocks? Looks right nice!

I hate to break it to you, but that 5 digit Springfield would look much better at my house! :D

I bought the guns with the stocks already finished. I will put boiled linseed oil on them in the future though.
