    did a little shopping lately for a Garand for my friend, and while dismayed at the lack of decent quality, whole guns, or any decent wood on'em, will probably end up buying a piece in the spring.

    Question is, who has stepped up with quality wood stocks in the last few years?
    I bought a beautiful CNC-milled walnut stock for my Garand from Reinhart Fajen in '98, for a mere $85.

    Fajen is now a corporate moniker for a company that only sells a handful of items.

    So who is filling this void?


    BTW, while digging up the stock co name, old receipt, I also found my Garand receipt - ready to whimper? - 11yrs ago, $265 out the door.
    Now it's ~$500, with a new manf receiver.

    They were in the catalog. I don't have one anymore. Send them an email.

    I think their prices for the Garands are reasonable Bondai. Nice site I label that one a keeper.

    Anyone see the ads in SGN that CMP is running?

    They are now willing to sell to the public(via a dealer)
    original M1-Garands arsenal direct $500.00 each!

    I have a CMP/DCM M1 that was purchased over 20-
    years ago through a gun club, mine came from the
    Aniston, AL Armory, I would buy up every one of these
    offered now by CMP if I could!

    They claim to have only a limited supply!

    Tac, I wouldn't blame you if you did. That's a decent price and they'll go fast.
