86,000 M1 Garand Rifles to return from the Philippines

Has anyone bought through this before? What kind of price do you end up getting on a M1?

I would love to have one too. That is not a horrid price if it is 1/2 way good condition. Looks like I need to join a local club to meet requirements though. Not a big deal, but I just have not found one I like that is in my price range. The cheaper shooting club locally requires 2 sponsors now. The other one is nice and I think only requires 1 sponsor, but is pretty expensive for as little as I get to shoot. There is another one that I may have to research.

Other than shooting clubs most of the orgs are BSA troops and ROTC that I see.

I'll believe this when CMP announces it.  Until then, its just added to the carbines and 1911s that have been rumored for years.

For clubs to join CMP lists many. Glock GSSF is one and you can shoot in their matches. I joined one in GA for $15 dollars ,do not even know

where it was. Net search will help.

Don't expect too much from this.  Most of those rifles will probably be in poor condition.  The Philippines are a harsh environment.  And they use their weapons until they're used up.

Still, any additions to CMP inventory is good news.

This is a rumor and nothing more. Until you see an official announcement from CMP, don't count on it.

I missed getting a Carbine but got a Garand several years ago.  They had some for $600 but I found one I had to have at $900.  It has been an excellent rifle.

That is one. How do you like it?

I have visited Kettlefoot, but it is way too expensive for the little I get to shoot. It is nice though.

I saw there is a Watagua, but I don't know anything about it.

Condition will mean a lot. I think most will be poor to really poor condition but hope otherwise.

I like it pretty well. They've been doing better with the upkeep and range improvements. It's like everywhere else, some days it's crowded and sometimes there are idiots there. For the most part it's a good group of people though.

This has been discussed quite a bit on the CMP forum. I'm pretty sure this is going to happen, but will still be a while. I suspect that there will be a lot of Rack and Field grade offerings out of this. The Rack grades are usually only sold at the stores so buyers can look them over before buying since they are the worst condition rifles. I wouldn't be surprised if many are furnished with new wood and possibly barrels and sold as Service grades or Specials. If I remember correctly, prices for Rack grades are around $500, and the price goes up by grade from there in about $100-$150 increments. I have several from CMP, but may pick up another if these ever make it here.
