    Friends, family, countrymen, and of course gunbelt I present to you a true marvel. Harkening back to a time when men were men and the women were too, a time when we didn't elect socialists we shot them.

    Behold the sleek lines, the real steel and walnut stock, you can almost smell the glory and grease oozing out it's very being. The legendary m1 garand.

    Now a quick question and answer session to clarify some things.

    1: will this make me a man? Yes
    2: what if I am a female? It's 2020 now these things happen.
    3: can I get and extendo clipazine for this? No, you get 8 rounds and a glorious ping of freedom as bald eagles soar overhead signifying your victory over all that is laid before you.
    4: can I get a tapco stock kit for this? You are weak, your bloodline is weak you will not survive the winter.
    5: can I mount a sword to this glorious work of art of commie destruction? Absolutely, in fact it is encouraged.
    6: "my cat's breath smells like cat food" That's not a question.

    Now down to the nitty gritty details

    H&r receiver
    H&r barrel dated 12/54 likely the original
    Serial number range is 5.778 million
    Springfield bolt and trigger housing, stock, and op rod.
    I believe the rest of the parts are h&r
    Some minor pitting on the metal. Mostly near muzzle and bayonet lug area
    Bore looks decent and it shoots well. Was having a minor issue with extraction so I replaced the extractor spring and detent which fixed it right up,
    I don't have a muzzle wear gauge but you can see brass if you stick a bullet in the muzzle.

    Looking to get 950 for this. Face to face Fuquay holly springs area. I am buying 20 beehives and need some funds, but a partial trade of something interesting may work for me. Especially if it is a sporterized mauser. With an 8mm bolt face, that isn't a yugo. 20200226_180615.jpg

    Picture of the crown. Old. Military Steel cleaning rods are the devil. Does still shoot straight.

    20200226_202614.jpg Yes 3006 I don't think i would own a 308 garand personally. I have too much black tip saved up for the boogaloo.

    Also this is not import marked.

    Was this a CMP rifle? I sold an H&R to guy on the other Carolina forum years ago to fund a trip for my son to play ball in Cooperstown but I don’t remember the buyers name/username.

    You have all done well to resist such a finely crafted ad. Now I must inspire you using the artistic post bumping technique passed down my family for generations images.jpeg

    Notice the supple lines, as if carved from the resplendent memory of the elder gods of yore. Behold the glorious visage of power and strength! Do you not crave this peak example of firearms ingenuity? Does your soul not cry out for such a veritable vestment of masculine grace?

    Can a man with such a fractured soul truly be whole? I Beseech thee, change your fate while you still have time, rise up against the sea of polymer, aluminum, and mediocrity. Seize not only this fine rifle, but I daresay your destiny. Not for my sake mind you, oh no but for the everlasting memory of all that have come before you, and all that are yet to be.

    Thank you and goodnight.








    Yes I get bored easily why you ask?

    This rifle not selling shows that the market on wood and steel guns is getting smaller every day. This is a fair price for a fine old rifle. Been about 10 days...there was a time it wouldn't have lasted 1 day. Plastic is where it's at, I guess. I wouldn't take this price for the Garand I own.
