    Here are a few photos of my M1 Garand collection.
    This is a five digit prewar 1940 Springfield Armory M1 Garand.

    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.

    Respectfully

    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.
