#10 True Cost and spare parts. $1500 will get you a CMP Service Grade HRA ($650), 1000 rnds M2 Ball, loose ($650), 4 M1 Garand Bandoleer Repacks w/6 clips ea ($100) (look for ammo in clips, it is out there and is the best way to buy it), Buttstock Cleaning Kit, A full set of springs, Sling and a set of bolt internal parts ($100ish)


In summary I hope you have benefited from this post. If you have never shot an M1 before you owe it to yourself to do so, you would be surprised how easy it is to hit long range targets with it and how mild the recoil is. There are CMP M1 clinics all over the country and they supply the rifle and ammo. Get some good Marksmanship Training at a USRA American Marksmanship Clinic or if that is not available, an Appleseed Shoot (preferable full distance). At my age, my idea of possible conflicts involve 400+ yard harassment and scout/DM situations and the M1 fits that role well. While I love the M-1A I just can't justify the cost (unless I find one below market). Also if you already have, or have to have a .308, you can rebarrel an M1 and still be well under the cost of a DSA FAL HK91 or SA M1-A. As a man on a budget it's my best choice. Just my $.52 worth.

I mean, this sort of "snubbing the new, supporting the 'tried and true'" has been going on for well over a century; many folks thought the 1911 was overly complicated and less reliable compared to a "tried and true" Colt Single Action Army, and almost every iteration of new service rifle has gotten criticized for being "less accurate, less powerful, and promoting wasting ammunition instead of actual marksmanship". They made that argument transitioning from the Springfield 1873 Trapdoor to the M1892 Krag-Jorgenson, from the Springfield 1903 to the M1 Garand, and from the M14 to the M16. And that's before dealing with the fiasco moving from the M1911 to the M9.

Hell, I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised that if some folks had their wish come true and "black rifles" and "combat tupperware" were banned that another group would show up and argue the Garand and 1911 are "overkill and unsportsmanlike" and that "all you need is a double-action revolver and a bolt-action rifle to take care of all your problems".
