    A friend told me the federal armory(?) sells m1 Garands 'as is' for bargain basement prices. Anyone have confirmation or the particulars on this? Thanks!

    They are the best source for quality, affordable M1 Garands and M1 Carbines, but they're currently backlogged about 6 months on rifle and ammo sales. If you were to go to either store in person though, you could likely take one home that day, and ammo too.

    One store is in Ohio, the other is North Carolina, I think.

    yes.

    definitly the civilian marksmanship program in the place to get an m1 garand.

    most (if not all) of the garands in this thread came from the cmp.

    i know the top one did. its mine (1 of 2 we picked up at the south store in alabama.)

    I just got back from the South Store on Wednesday. The people there couldn't be nicer, and there are lots of Garands to choose from. I went in thinking I was going to get a Special Grade, but instead got a field grade Springfield and a new walnut stock. Really enjoyable experience, and great prices too!

    been to the north store, plenty of guns, but completely out of ammo and unfortunately mags for my carbine. the guy at the counter said when they get the cases of ammo in, they fly out the door, even with limits.

    Only about two hours from Tuscaloosa, and it's sort of awe inspiring -- rack after rack of Garands, carbines, 1903s and such (depending on what they've got in stock at that time, but always pretty fun).

    And hitting the store allows you to pick and choose the rifle you get -- I got a pre-Pearl Harbor receivered rifle (70K serial number range, from Oct 1940) with a VAR barrel that gauged well above the minimum for Field Grade.
