    Paid too much? Money comes and goes but guns are forever.

    It's beautiful, and I would hope you mean unfired since its restoration.

    You never pay to much.
    You just buy too soon.;)

    In ten years you'll be glad you did it. Beautiful gun!

    I usually avoid full price or paying to much like the plague....but that's one sexy rifle! No cure for that!

    Better to pay too much for the right gun than find out you paid to little and got something less than what you really wanted.

    In a year or two you will forget about paying a bit extra and all will be good.

    Buy once, cry once... one of the biggest (and longest to finally accept) of life's lessons.


    Absolutely gorgeous M1!!

    Ok, we need more photos of that beauty! That stock is incredible..:eek:

    Is that a DGR stock? The Parkerizing looks a little light colored to be done by DGR.

    I remember reading once.....

    "Dear Lord, when I die, please don't let my wife sell my guns for what I told her
    I paid for them."

    Good eye Velzey. DGW did all the work including a trigger job. What do you want to see in picks? I'll do my best with a cellphone

    How about the opposite side, and from the rear/above looking down!
    DGR does about the best work around, well next to my restorations!:)

    This rifle has a serial # 455xx, that is pre war. The receiver has never been touched. Worked perfect prior to it's makeover from 308 to 06.
