Here are the CMP prices. Gunshops are always higher.

Re: M1 Garrand with Beretta receiver
The Beretta Garands are current imports by an outfit called Reese Surplus in Illinois. The rifle is about 1/2" shorter than a US Garand, so several parts like the barrel, operating rod, stock and handguard will not interchange.

The quality is reported to be excellent although I have not had my hands on one. These rifles will not appreciate like genuine collector-grade US Garands. Expect to pay $1250-$1400 for the Beretta.
