I just picked up a new Garand, but not your regular run of the mill type of Garand.
This one is a "Navy match trophy rifle" I have run the barrel #'s and they match the CMP info.
It is barreled in 7.62-not sleeved and is all NM parts.
Receiver is late '45 springfield and barrel is 10-65 7.62mm Springfield. Looks like it has never been fired!

Anyone ever see one of these? What is it's value?
Thanks!

You are right there is not much info on these, here is what I found to be pertinent. Sorry if you already read this stuff, I find it facinating.

During the summer we usually have a few barbeques at Chabot Gun Club or Richmond or wherever they allow cooking. We call them shoot and Q's. If you like I can have my FFL meet us there and tranfer................

ivanimal, thank you for the invite, let me know! and for the links!
I usually shoot down at Metcalf 'cause it's close, and occasionally at LAR&GC when it's too hot down there! Like to find a place with wide open space and unlimited range, but i dont think that's anywhere too close to home!

I dont even see them listed in the blue book of gun values. The nicest variant of match rifles listed is 22 hundred. But that is for a gun not chambered for 308. I would like to see your rifle at one of our shoot and Q's someday. Nice find. I am glad you desire to shoot it. I am of the same state of mind. I wont buy a safe queen.

The real problem is that now you have to buy another M1 because you know you'll never shoot that one.

Well, here it is, my "new" Garand with a 7.62 SA Barrel.
All parts are Springfield or National Match. Some "fitting" was done but it is not bedded. Hope it shoots well!

Thanks, ivanimal! Yeah, there's not too much info about them on the web either.
I am sending a letter off to the CMP to verify (hopefully) that it is a true Trophy rifle. I know the barrel is original SA 7.62 and the receiver is late '45. Stock has "correct" cartouches.
What is a shoot and Q?
