Looks like lots of people who buy Garands from RIA never heard of the CMP. They're paying nearly 3x more than they have to.

Excellent and readable I recall when Civil War muskets and carbines were in high demand due to the Centennial many reenactors
were using original equipment The 150 th anniversary received almost no press or interest WHY ? I am at a loss to say
Since we will never have access to surplus full auto weapons, the Garands and carbines are the way to go
Speculation on the condition of the approaching Garand imports is mixed I am sure there will be some good ones , many more may be dismal. I look with anticipation not only on the selection but the prices asked The arrival of the ' BLUE SKY ' GUNS FROM South
Korea boosted the price of the nicer specimens any got more people into the hobby
