    I finally got an International Harvester M1 Garand for my little collection. It is mostly IHC parts. It looks like a repark but the park has that greenish gray color like an arsenal park job. doesn't look like a commercial park job at all. How do you like it ???

    Nice, I bought an IHC from the CMP many years ago for less that $300 and like a fool I sold it for $650 a few years ago because my Springfield shot better. Would have been a good investment if I had kept it!

    Great looking rifle. What cartouche is that?

    Don't forget a range report.

    Your IHC is purdy. Mine is all dark. :)

    What a shame... that it's just too "purdy to shoot".

    It's one of the best-looking Garands I've seen.

    Nice rifle! 15 years ago I bought a Springfield built in 1942 for $400. Last year I sold it for $900!

    Looks great! I'd love to pick up an IH to keep my HRA company.

    Very nice. What parts aren't IHC? I ask because I have some IHC parts in my stash. Think I have an IHC windage knob, IHC bolt, maybe some others but not sure.

    If you need any IHC specific parts let me know. Not looking to sell you stuff or anything. For example if you needed an IHC bolt we could just exchange part for part.

    Anyway, for now just enjoy what is a fine rifle! :)

    The last IHC I saw in these parts went for $1200 firm at the local gun pawn establishment. It was in good condition and they wouldn't budge one penny on the price. It lasted one day on the rack.

    Nice rifle you have there congrats!

    I didn't realize IHC made Garands. Now I gotta have one since everything on my farm is red, and I have been wanting a Garand anyway.

    nice rifle...congrats!!
