    Any M1s at economical prices

    I would like to get an M1 but there seems to be a price disparity between the CMP and retail, and I'd rather not jump through the hoops for a CMP gun. Sooo... what's out there for budget buyers?

    I have seen Inland M1 Carbines on sale at Big 5 Sporting Goods for $699. That's the best price that I have seen lately for that weapon.

    I simply don't know of anything out there that beats the CMP and the hoops would be fun to jump through. Try a match.

    im going to get my hand on one of those here pretty quick. In my opinion, the M1 is one of those great assault wepaons that flies under the radar. magazines for them are cheap and there are zilliions of ones on the surplus market, and the ammo is readily available and very easy to reload.

    $699 seems like a good price to me....

    I will probably be ordering a Garand from CMP sometime soon. Nothing beats .30-06!

    I think I saw that Classic Arms in NC had two M1 Carbines left, the pictures looked like decent grade (if they are the two shown), for $599.

    Ask questions...

    Are you a C&R 03 FFL? Because, if not, your going to have a shipping to an FFL and a transfer fee too. And CMP can ship direct to you so figure that difference in.

    Here ya go Classic Arms Inc.

    You really should consider going through the CMP.
    It is really easy and fun. And you are helping and supporting a
    great program. I got an absolutely beautiful Garand through
    them two years ago. Plus they ship right to your front door.
    No going through a FFL or transfer fees.
    Oh and my Garand is a great shooter and very accurate.

    I was reading and you have to meet certain criteria: US Citizen, Member of a CMP affiliated organization, and marksmanship or other firearms related activity... Now for the last I can use my military 214, but for the organization... What do people use to satisfy that criteria?

    Many just join the Garand collectors association.

    Many local gun clubs or local gun groups count. I am a member of 2 CMP organizations and didn;t even know it.

    WELL NOW, I see that my CHP qualifies for marksmanship, I thought I had to participate in a match for that. And I am already in an approved club. Things are looking up, maybe I WILL get that Garand!

    By the way, a lot of CMP's Garands are sold out. Is there a certain date that they "refill the coffers?"

    Former military, I'm not active and that's what I got out of it that you had to be active for one criteria or be part of a club or something.
