Re: Buying M1 Garands, The Civilian Marksmanship Program CMP is a good program. I believe you are at their mercy on condition of the weapon though, however, I have heard no complaints. I read somewhere the latest batch of Garands were being sold by the South Koreans back to the CMP in order to purchase Daewoos for the ROK Army. These are supposed to be Korean War era weapons. I will look for the report I read and post it up.
