Beautiful, love that green park the best on Garands. Yours looks pretty much un-fired, based on that picture of the bolt face.

I agree. Everytime he opens a box, I hate my life.

It's an original M1D with the original scope, do you have any idea how much "I'll take it" would cost you?






The box, nor any of the contents of the afore mentioned box are mine. It is going to be up for sale once I figure out what a fair price for it is. I just figured I would share it here in the mean time.

Price would probable be in the $4000+ range. Last one I saw like that went for $3600 and that was a couple of years ago.

It's really hard to price. There just are not many examples like it. There are some in that pricerange on GB, but they have been well used.

↑ This one is in better condition, but that was in 2007.

CMP auction prices are rarely a indicator of real world prices, plus the release of M1D's and accessories by the CMP a few years back brought the prices down. I would check over at the CMP Forum, someone over there should be able to give you a decent estimate.

CMP could put dog crap up for auction and it would sell :) You cannot gauge real world selling price by their auctions, especially in todays market
IMO its in the $3500 range maybe slightly more

Very nice! I "found" abox similar to that years ago. It contained an 8mm Mauser. My uncle brought it back from Europe after WWII.

Very nice! You must be living right.

Hey, I've got a couple cases of old foreign corrosive .30-06 ammo in really bad condition that I need to use up. Let's go out and break the rifle in right. ;)
