Ok, not to thread hijack, but i will ask the masses about this one.....

I have a Danish return Springfield with VAR barrel that the serial number dates to December 1941. It has the matching stock that is serial numbered to the receiver. This rifle will be buried with me, as it was my first C&R, and hold immense sentimental meaning, as my Grandfather was a Pearl Harbor Survivor.....

Anyways, what would/could be expected as a value of such rifle? I know pictures tel the tale, but we will assume your typical mixmaster Dane in good condition, probably SG. I am looking at insuring my collection, and never really thought much more than the regular going rate of Garands as a value, i didn't think that the Danish returns held any premium. And i do have the CMP paperwork for the rifle as well.

Thanks

Prior to the end of WW2, Winchester and Springfield Armory were the only two manufacturers of the Garand. Post war, H&R and International Harvester received contracts.

Winchester made no Garands after 1945.

Cosidering SA's are marked "sold out" the only way you're getting a WWII receiver from the CMP is to wait a while until they open up Springfield sales again.

Yes, so I just ordered an HRA. I have been reading about the HRAs and they sound like nice guns. Maybe some day they will open up the SA sales, but that may be a while.

Some feel the HRAs to be better finished and nicer then the SAs.

I have heard that. And at the CMP price it is hard to beat them. Do you have any personal experience with the HRAs?
