Default Someone got a good deal

So there was an auction in NH and this M1 Garand went pretty cheap I think. Price with 17.5% premium. Lot closed - Winning bid:$1,292.50





Description from internet.

Quote:
serial #198217, 30-06, 24” 9-40 dated Springfield Armory barrel with a very good plus bore with light frosting, a few light pits, but evident rifling. The metal surfaces of the rifle retain about 97% arsenal reapplied parkerized finish with light wear on the contact points and high edges, and scattered light handling marks; the steel buttplate has worn to gunmetal; a small ding is present on the top of the left side of the receiver. The walnut stock is in very good plus condition as lightly cleaned with scattered old light handling marks and traces of white ink residue on the left side of the forend. The stock is marked with a faded “AAM” rework mark on the left side above the trigger, the faint remains of a circled “P” proof is present on the inside of the pistolgrip with a more pronounced but still faded “P” stamped below it, and the stock is crisply stamped “100” on the toe line between the rear sling swivel and the buttplate. The receiver markings have softened lightly but are still easily legible, the trigger housing is marked “-8-SA”, the hammer is marked “-5-SA”, the bolt is marked “-19SA”, and the uncut operating rod is marked “9 SA”. The rifle features a 2-slot gas plug, a milled triggerguard, and lockbar rear sight. Altogether an attractive arsenal reworked early M1 rifle. (14A9688-24) {C&R} (800/1200)

Kinda sounds like an "assembled" rifle. The receiver dates to March 1941 and the barrel is Sept. 1940? I would have a few questions on this one.....bit surprised by the annealed heel.

Not a bad rifle or bad deal, but certainly not the deal of the century on a rifle of indeterminate provenance. Would quite likely "part out" for more than the purchase price, if one were into that kind of thing.

Certainly it is an assembled rifle. He even says in the post that it is "arsenal reworked". He isn't claiming original.

So over $1500 with auction premium for a mixmaster rebuild with unknown barrel condition? No thanks.

The thread tells me that some people will spend more on the rifle, so it'll probably pop up at the Broker before too long.

Someone got dinged on that purchase. Sounds like nothing more than a Field Grade rifle with a few, possibly added, correct parts. Evenbthe barrel correctness is in serious question. Almost all early Garands had very closely matched dates to the receiver date.
