Would like to see some pics of one nice example. TIA.These were made to specs of the Garand. They aren't hard to find, but they weren't made in huge numbers. Guys that have one for sale think they are worth a grand. Those who want one think they are (sometimes) worth half that, usually less. They are good shooters with adjustable triggers. If yours is marked as USMC property, you are a lot closer to the Grand. They were made from 1944-46.
