    Do any of you guys know of some sources that still make 80% finished garand receivers and who sells garand parts kits (everything minus the receiver)? Thinking of building a few maybe. Thanks in advance.

    I know SOG has had them in the past, but I'm not sure if they do now.

    The website shows M1 Carbine receivers. Maybe make one of those instead. :D

    I don't recall ever seeing a Garand parts kit that was complete minus receiver. That's usually done to get around import restrictions on foreign guns or NFA guns.

    You can certainly do it, but it will probably cost you twice what CMP seels them for.

    Garand parts kits are currently unavailable. At least for a price that
    you could afford to build up a rifle. CMP has decent rifles complete starting
    at about 450. You will have 600-700 in your kit gun.
