The Navy guns were rebuilds on existing guns as manufacture of Garands had already ceased.

There used to be plenty of USGI (Springfield Armory) 7.62NATO barrels for sale at the Tusla Gun show. I put one on my worn out Garand and it makes a great shooter!

It is not a true "Navy Garand" but I bet it will be when my Widow sells it at the Gun show!

I have a Springfield Armory Geneso IL I got back in the early 90s. Built on a surplus WWII date forged receiver w/ new wood 7.62 barrel and spacer block. 100% reliable, beautiful, and my fave rifle. They are not common however.

Aluminum Spacer Blocks to prevent loading 30-06 in the magazine are made and available from Midway, Brownell's, etc. I have two steel Korean spacers. The Israelis and a South American country made them also. Otherwise, it's just a simple rebarrel.

308 garand

They are out there for under $900.00. Sarco sells 308 kits. The top rifle in the photo is my "Italian T2" copy. Excellent shooter that I got for under $800.00 on GB a few years ago. There is a guy from near Green Bay, Wi who builds them for well under $1000.00 and sells them at the local gunshows.
As far a Navy 308, well anything marked navy carries a huge premium.
