Correct on the South Korean Garands. Lots of info on the web if you want to look it up.AJMBLAZER wrote: ↑Mon Jul 17, 2017 8:05 pmThe 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.
