I just placed my order last week for an M-! Garand. I have wanted one for years and decided to take the plunge when I saw the Field Grades available. Now for patience. Something I'm low on, but I think I'll do OK.

I've got an Inland M-1 Carbine (serial number shows early 1945) a friend sold me about 10 years ago. He let me have it for $125. The only problem with it was it had been painted an ugly beige color. It took a bit of work to strip the paint and get the wood back to what it should be, but I think I did a fairly decent job on it. So, looking forward to having a big brother for it.

Looking forward to learning a lot from all your experiences.
