Garand's Garand

Garand serial number 1000000. Set aside when produced during WWII. Beautifully worked over and presented to John Garand in 1953 on the occasion of his retirement.

It is up for auction this September. Might be yours for a quarter million. Or you can just go look at the pictures and read the story.

I'd be just as happy with this one. A late production National Match Garand, in good condition, likely to sell in the $4,000 range. Still pricier than I'll ever be likely to afford, but not so far out there that I couldn't think about it.

Because at the end of the day, it's a Garand and the question for me is always, "How does it group?"

You should be able to buy them new in my scholarly opinion.
