Default 4 digit Garand

Have chance to buy Garand SN77xx, '50's stock, 46 barrel, $1200, with CMP papers. Should I do it?

What grade is it? It all depends on how bad you want an early receiver. You could look for many years and have a hard time finding another one for sale. But, it sounds like the only early part is the receiver itself. I personally wouldn’t have an interest in it for that price… But, many collectors would be interested.

FWIW there's been several 4 digit receivers on CMP's auction site recently. Most are bringing in the $600-$800 range. Depending on grade and condition 1200 is probably the very top of the mark. If it's condition is average or worse I wouldn't consider paying that for it.

I wouldn't for that price, just up to you how much in early serial number like that is worth to you I do like pre-war serial numbers I might pay $100 premium for that serial number but nothing more than that, especially since it doesn't have the original barrel

Honestly $1200 on the open market really isnt that high , in my area they consistently are priced in $1500 range, rarely do I see one for under $1200. Also you know what you are getting. and a 4 digit to boot.

I have sold a couple handfuls of good service grade M1's (some CMP, some not) for $1200

Several members here have brought up a good point what is the going rate for a Garand in your area also is it a rack grade field grade service grade

The best thing is with CMP papers he doesnt have to worry that Bubba got his hands on it in the last 80 years or so.
