I took this CMP M1 Garand on trade several years ago from a guy who is an engineer with Caterpillar. He got it from CMP and said he went through and replaced any parts that needed replacing (e.g. pins). I added the leather sling. It is a good shooter. The parkerizing is good and the stock is in quite good shape. Also includes about 150 rounds of surplus ammo and about 20 clips. I might be interested in a trade/partial trade for a pistol (e.g. subcompact XDM, Kahr PM, etc- no Glocks please) or AR15. $700.
