I saw my first Tanker Garand at the gun show yesterday. It looked interesting, as it lacked a forward handguard and had more of the piston/rod exposed. It was made by National Ordnance and the condition seemed decent. What surprised me was the price: $495. Less than I paid for my full length Springfield, of course mine was of much higher quality. Does this sound like a steal, fair, or bad price? I'm not in the market, but I occasionally hear people talk about how special it is. Caliber is 30-06. If anyone's interested I have contact info.
