Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

They may be half as nice but will be four times as much. The Danes were known for having many original parts still on them. I purchased many of the woodless Danes.

This topic reminded me of this article on Argentine Service Rifles:

Argentina reverse engineered the STG-44, M-1 and 1941 Johnson!

If you got a Danish "VAR" barrel, you got a rifle better then anything the US ever made.
Think Kreiger match grade quality.
They are still US rifles It is just they have much better made repair parts..
Aint nothing you cant fix with five gallons of diesel and a match.

when they are returned, and after the CMP finishes re-arsenal them they will be like all other the garands that were returned grouped into categories, rack grade, field grade etc...

http://thecmp.org/cmp_sales/rifle_sales/m1-garand/

if you are looking for a very nice one. then either buy the highest grade you can afford. or, take a trip to the store and handpick out the garand you want.

You are correct Steve, believe what is meant is M1s that are out of Country now and may be brought back. The cmp description of M1 sales page originally was US rifles , later they added Danish and Greek returns. They are still USGI rifles lent to other Countries and returned. The word is Korea has a large number that may make it back to the US.

With the M1's coming back to the CMP there may not be many Rack grades or woodless offered. A large part of that grade will probably be turned into CMP Specials that they are putting on new barrels, stocks and refinishing.

That way they can get more bang for the buck!

I believe Italy (Beretta) made Garands.

I remember the :evil: "previous administration" :evil: refused to allow South Korea to return them. I'm glad they waited and the rifles are coming in now. I always thought they were good shooters and utility rifles. A little heavy maybe but they carry well. There's plenty of load data out there and good ammunition as well. We need to get as many of these in the hands of good citizens as possible.

The Philippines are sending back the 86,000 Garands we sent them as aid.

The South Korean guns were transferred to them under a different program and thus do not qualify to be sent back to the US in the same manner. They have to be bought as surplus and imported just like any other surplus military firearm. I believe it was Century that had bought them and was arranging shipment from and payment to South Korea when the last administration stopped their importation.
