Default Worth keeping.

Ok. I have 2 Garands. I need to sell one. Which one is more desirable?
1 SA 3 mil with original barrel. Old/new wood. All correct.

2 SA 8xx,xxx with 1965 barrel. HRA trigger assem. New CMP wood.

Both are great shooters.

I like the lower serial number, but I like the original 44 barrel on #1.

I vote for the 3 million as well. Anything all or mostly correct is going to be desirable. Although, you say your SA 800k has a 65 dated barrel, if it is an SA, LEAD, or other rebuild with the right receiver leg etched, then it would be a difficult decision. Photos would help us help you make your decision.

If both are equally good shooters, definitely the 3 Mil. The other, even being a 6 digit, is worth much less though it has what most would consider the better barrel. Being a 6 digit really adds zero value.

The 3.0M is the way to go.
