M1 Garand for sale  (30.06 Springfield)

Be ready for the coming Corona-Zombie Apocalypse!  O0

$900.00 includes CMP hard case, new cotton sling, chamber flag, CMP M1 owner’s manual, and I will throw in a dozen enblocs and two rolls of TP.  ;D

This rifle is comparable to the M1 Garand Special grade that CMP sells for $1050.

I’m giving Alaska Appleseed folks first chance at the M1 Garand that I built at the Civilian Marksmanship Program Advanced Maintenance Course, (CMP AMC), in October 2019. (Link to the build AAR below)

If not sold to AK AS folks it will be consigned at Great Northern Guns

This is a beautiful rifle that was built under the strict supervision, assistance, and testing of CMP gunsmiths.

This rifle is an excellent shooter.

All major components have been bead blasted and re-parkerized.

All components were inspected by CMP gunsmiths for safety and function prior to assembly.

This rifle was built on a Springfield receiver manufactured in 1942.
New Criterion barrel.
The Winchester, (W.R.A.), bolt was lapped to the receiver and head spaced to the barrel.
Winchester slant op-rod with relief cut.
All the other parts are USGI of various manufactures.
New walnut stock and hand guards finished with five coats of hand rubbed pure tung oil.

If interested please send a PM through this forum or email me:  hogfamily@gci.net

Willing to sell to an non-AK AS folks? (shipped to an FFL of course)
The hardest distance to shoot is the six inches between your ears.  It gets easier when you get out of your own way.  Self doubt and negative self talk have no place on the firing line.  Once a shot is gone... good or bad, it is gone.   Focus on the next one. Make forty good first shots.
