Default PIcked up a blonde McCoy Garand.

Its the one in the middle. Weighs about twice as much as the normal unit, and the trigger is very nice, but basically its just an accurized M1A with a nice stock, bedding, better sights, and a few other items.

Shoots well so far, but I haven't tried it yet at 600 yards

Thumbs up

If I owned that weapon I'd carry wallet sized photos like my grandparents did of us kids.

Very, very nice.

WOW!!!! Gorgeous rifle. Makes me think of "Jon Baker", played by Larry Wilcox on "CHiPs". He carried the blonde baton. Now you've got the blonde Garand!

Glad you told us it was the one in the middle

All kidding aside, odd but great looking rifle!

The big question is for me...how does it shoot. I hope to get it to Angeles to find that out.

Nice looking Garand. Will you go with a tan sling or go with a contrasting color?

I have both. I will test fit each one on it and see which I like better. Or ask my fashion nut daughter which one looks better, than do just the opposite to pisse her off
