Did any of you guys read the article in Shooting Times on the Garands that they (Springfield Armory Inc.) are putting out?? Looks like they cost about $1000.00. Just wondering what you guys think.

They seem to have gotten mixed reviews. Apparently there are some wide variations in quality based on who manufactured the receiver. $1000.00 is a lot to pay when the CMP rifles cost 1/2 that.

I've heard the early ones were made with Italian surplus receivers and that future ones will be new cast ones.

I still think there won't be much of a market for commercial M1s until the CMP M1s dry up. Hard to justify paying $1000 when you can get a decent Dane VAR for $400-425.00.

If it says SA Inc. it will be a cast receiver , most like with surplus ( used ) parts . How is this better than a USGI forger SA receiver and the rest of the parts , from the CMP ?

My SA Inc. was made around Mar. this year. The receiver is
marked Lithgow. The rifle appears well made. I also have
a CMP-SA Dane w/ VAR. For half the money the CMP is likely the
better deal.

I have a garand that I purchased new in 1986 from Springfield. I would only get rid of it if someone wanted to trade me a 1918A3 BAR for it. To this day, it's the most accurate rifle I have ever owned and it still looks new.
