    Incomplete M1 Garand Project Rifle $1500

    Selling my M1 Garand project rifle. Includes an 80% receiver which needs the final 20% to be finished. I sent it to a gunsmith and he quoted me $1000 to finish it which I thought was a bit overpriced so didn't go ahead. All the parts are original and include an M1D Garand barrel with a very nice bore, all the woodwork is there but there is still a couple of pieces missing like the op rod and spring etc. The bolt has had a bit of weld placed over the firing pin hole so that would need to be removed. Took me over 6 years to gather all the bits and pieces but with Garands fetching over 5k at the last auction, could be a good rifle for someone to finish who knows what they are doing. Hasn't been placed on the register and I have a 5rd garand clip so if anyone wanted to finish it as an A cat rifle. I also have some other garand bits like cleaning kit etc lying around which I'll chuck in. $1500 including shipping. PM me if interested

    Do you have some more details on the receiver? Where was it made? Does it come with any documentation as to what needs to be done to finish it?

    Cheers

    Hi, I don't have much details on the receiver. I know an armourer in hamilton who has two of the same receivers and is doing the exact same thing, but when I asked him if he could finish mine as well he didn't seem to interesting. I could put you onto the gunsmith who I sent the parts to, he might be able to give you a better rundown than me
